After being challenged by Sequoia Golf and some of our own clubs, the ClubCorp executive team accepted the #ALSIceBucketChallenge. The team consisted of:

  • Eric Affeldt - President and Chief Executive Officer
  • Curt McClellan – Chief Financial Officer
  • Mark Burnett - Chief Operating Officer
  • Ingrid Keiser - General Counsel, Secretary and Executive Vice President of People Strategy
  • Dan Tilley – Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer

ALS is a cause close to ClubCorp’s heart and this particular Ice Bucket Challenge was accepted in support of Augie Nieto and ALS TDI

Augie Nieto, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2005, founded Augie’s Quest, which has raised more than $36 million in donations to support ALS Research. 

Each year all of the ClubCorp Clubs open their doors to host annual Charity Classic fundraising events where Members, family and friends alike give, golf, dine and celebrate. All of the collected proceeds are divided between each Club’s local charity of choice, ClubCorp’s Employee Care Foundation (E.P.C.F.) which helps Employee Partners of ClubCorp’s family of clubs in need of financial assistance in times of need, and Augie’s Quest, an organization determined to find a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

The #ALSIceBucketChallenge is in full swing across Facebook and Twitter, and the ClubCorp family of clubs can’t get enough! Especially since ALS is a cause that is close to our company’s heart.

Each year, the ClubCorp Charity Classic opens the doors of our private clubs to help those in need. Members, family and friends alike give, golf and dine during our nationwide, one-day charity event, donating more than $10 million since the Classic began in 2007.

The proceeds are divided between each Club’s local charity of choice, ClubCorp’s Employee Partners Care Foundation (E.P.C.F.) which helps Employee Partners of ClubCorp's family of clubs in need of financial assistance in times of crisis and Augie’s Quest, an organization determined to find a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Since its inception in 2006, Augie's Quest has raised more than $36 million in donations to support ALS research. Its founder, Augie Nieto, was diagnosed with ALS in 2005 and since then, Augie and his family have worked with the ALS Therapy Development Institute towards effective treatments and cures.

So how can you help? Besides accepting the #ALSIceBucketChallenge and raising awareness along with making a charitable donation, become a part of your Club’s Charity Classic event! Visit classic.als.net to learn more and find upcoming Charity Classic events.
