More than 200 golf course superintendents from across the United States stepped up to the tee box at the FMC Professional Solutions booth during the 2020 Golf Industry Show for the chance to earn donations for their local Golf Course Superintendents Association of America chapter. In total, FMC donated $21,000 to 71 local GCSAA chapters as a result of the kickoff event. For the month of August, FMC is increasing their give back to $25 for every 2.5-gallon purchase of Rayora fungicide.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better place to emphasize the commitment FMC has to the golf industry than at the Golf Industry Show. The extra incentive in August is a great way to further support local chapters, especially since many fundraisers and outings were cancelled this year due to COVID,” said Mike Sisti, golf and lawn care market manager for FMC. “As a committed partner, it is important to us to support the golf industry and those who are helping it progress each day.”
The fundraiser was an initiative driven by the FMC True Champions that was launched in fall 2019. One of the key features of the loyalty program is to support industry associations such as GCSAA chapters, We Are Golf and RISE.
“The Georgia GCSA applauds FMC for their commitment to the golf industry, especially in these tough economic times,” Georgia GCSA executive director Tenia Workman said. “FMC’s Give Back allows our chapter to continue to grow its programs and our mission of enhancing the game of golf and the golf course management profession. It is sincerely appreciated.”
