Haight continued its 80 Acts of Kindness Campaign by contributing baseball tickets to the First Tee of San Francisco (www.thefirstteesanfrancisco.org). The First Tee started as a way to bring an affordable junior golf program to youth and communities that did not have them. What The First Tee soon discovered was that blending the rules of the game with life and leadership skills, kids and teens didn’t just learn how to putt – they were learning important values. Their mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
Since 1997, The First Tee has grown its network to deliver programs in all 50 United States and select international locations. In 2016, The First Tee brought character education through the game of golf to more than 5.3 million young people.
“The First Tee offers more than golf lessons for kids: we offer life lessons.“
Haight was able to send four of The First Tee’s kids to a Giants baseball game on September 15.
