(RESTON, VA) – Youth on Course has selected Buffalo Brand Invigoration Group to manage a publicity and media relations campaign that stimulates nationwide growth for the non-profit organization.
Buffalo will promote Youth on Course’s affordable green fees of $5 or less, college scholarships and mentorship opportunities through paid internships and caddie initiatives. Since 2011, fundraising has led to roughly 380,000 subsidized rounds of golf and more than $600,000 in educational awards.
Youth on Course started in northern California, expanded statewide and extended into Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona and Utah.
