Affiliate Events Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why is Els for Autism launching Affiliate Events? Every year we have individuals in different cities who would like to start up a local Regional Golf Challenge, and the golf calendar is mostly limited to summer months. In addition, people who do not play golf have asked how they can participate. Affiliate Events give more people the ability to become part of the Golf Challenge and qualify for the Grand Finale.
2. How do I know if my Affiliate Event idea will qualify? Please complete the registration on this page and you will be contacted by a Golf Challenge staff member within 5 business days.
3. Will Els for Autism cover any start-up costs for my Affiliate Event? The Foundation will not be able to cover start-up costs, so hosts should ensure that they can recoup costs through ticket sales or registration fees.
4. How do I accept donations on behalf of Els for Autism? Hosts of similar events have accepted donations several ways– some collect funds and write a personal check to Els for Autism Foundation,some have their guests write checks to the Foundation, and some ask guests to pay for their event ticket, and then write a separate donation to the Foundation.

• Affiliate Event marketing package, with print ready deliverables
