Canceled (please see below)
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are canceling this important annual fundraiser for the PNA Foundation. The health and safety of PNA members, friends and staff remains paramount in our decision. We will miss the opportunity to gather and to raise funds in support of the many trainings, contests and grant programs that the PNA Foundation provides to PNA members, students and the public. In lieu of golfing or sponsoring, we encourage you to consider a donation to the PNA Foundation through our Fellows Fund for the Future or a gift of your choice. Contact Melinda Condon for more information.
All new in 2020! We’ve changed…date, location, fees and sponsorships. We’ll be golfing in cool September at the Colonial Golf and Tennis Club, 4901 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg, just a few miles from PNA Headquarters. And, we’ve invited sponsors and golfers from the PNA Foundation Carrier Golf Outing to join us in support of the Carrier of the Year Contest.
Why support the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association Foundation’s annual golf outing? For more than 50 years, the Foundation has provided quality training and resources to PNA members while awarding excellence, working to increase public awareness of the First Amendment and developing the next generation of readers and journalists through a variety of programs, contests and funds.
Through our COVID-19 News Support Grant Program, the Foundation distributed $150,000, supporting 61 news companies across Pennsylvania. Funds, up to $2,500 per grant, were used to cover operating costs, buy equipment needed for remote work, fund special reports and coverage, reach vulnerable communities and more during this crisis. In addition, Foundation Fellows Funds were granted to Spotlight PA to help with the creation of a database of diverse sources for newsrooms. This resource of PA-based experts who are people of color will serve as an invaluable tool for journalists as they work to provide inclusive coverage and voices.
Your participation in the PNA Foundation Golf Outing is a great way to enjoy a day of golf while supporting the PNA Foundation and all that we do!
