Buying tickets to the Kraft Nabisco Championship can benefit the SAG Foundation, as well as the lives of countless actors and their communities! Just visit www.kncgolf.com to buy your tickets and designate the SAG Foundation as your charity of choice.
The Kraft Nabisco Championship-SAG Foundation partnership is moving ahead and drawing nearer to a golf tournament as star-studded as it is supportive of the cause of children’s literacy. The prestigious Kraft Nabisco Championship (March 28-April 3 ), which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, has worked closely with the SAG Foundation to gain an impressive roster of commitments for the Tournament Week’s Celebrity Pro-Am, in addition to co-sponsoring a number of BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools) events in California’s Coachella Valley, a wonderfully generous show of support for the Foundation’s Children’s Literacy Initiative.
