Buford, GA - "Only God can hit a 1-iron!" That was a popular phrase among golfers back before the turn of the century. Maybe that's why you don't see golf club manufacturers making 1-irons anymore? But that didn't stop Fusion Church in Buford, GA from bringing the Mobile 19th Hole to church on Father's Day.
Atlanta, GA - Mobile Golf Events announced today, a new contest in an effort to increase their social media footprint. By participating in helping MGE grow their numbers of Facebook Page 'Likes', they are rewarding contest entrants with chances to win gift cards to Cobra-Puma Golf.
MGE's founder, Brett Gorney said, "People love winning free stuff! Cobra-Puma Golf is our clothing and equipment partner and we figured why not give people a chance to win cool gear. They make great equipment and have really sporty and fashionable clothing and shoes for men and women. Everybody wins in this contest! We get to grow our social media presence and a few people get hooked up with a free gift card."
The contest requires people to enter their name and email on MGE's contests webpage and then 'Like' their Facebook Page. MGE's goal is to increase its total number of page likes through June 12th. When they hit 1,000 likes, MGE will give away a $100 gift card. If they get to 2,000 likes by June 12th, they'll reward another lucky winner. And the big prize comes if they get up to 3,000 likes where they'll award a $300 gift card to the randomly selected contest entrant. Participants are encouraged to share the contest on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to help get MGE's Facebook Likes up.

Atlanta, GA - Every Monday during the spring and fall there are 40-50 golf outings going on around the greater Atlanta area...not to mention all of the others all over the state of Georgia. Attracting sponsors has always been essential in raising money for the charity benefactor of the event. Mobile Golf Events has come up with a unique sponsorship opportunity that is making waves.
In the golf outing world, the sponsorships that are sold are the key to raising money for the supported organization or charity. Experts say that you don't make money off your entry fees, it's all off of sponsors, auctions and other add-on experiences. Events are always trying to find unique ways to differentiate and attract new sponsors and Brian Riggins, CEO of Magnolia Group, recently shared some valuable insights with Mobile Golf Events founder Brett Gorney. Riggins said, "The golf outings that are doing really well these days are having to turn away companies who want to sponsor them either because there's not enough sponsor opportunities or simply not enough room in the event. Companies are paying to sponsor cart paths, bunkers and even water hazards! Your Mobile 19th Hole presents a really attractive opportunity for a company to support and participate in the event and give golfers another chance at winning some great prizes."
Gorney agreed and added, "The other fun spin on the sponsorship is that event organizers can pitch it as their 'Rain Insurance Policy' too! If it rains at the event we can quickly put together a 'Team Closest-to-Pin' contest and keep people around the event. The worst thing that can happen at an event is when you put hundreds of hours of preparation into the event and then Mother Nature rains on your event! It's a reality and happens to a lot of big events but we have a solution to that. Our goal is to create a fun experience and ultimately to help increase the event's bottom line."
Whether its a golf event, party or gala, Mobile Golf Events seems to be on to something here with its unique way to help organizations and charities raise more money!
