SCNS Sports Foods Donates $30,000 to The First Tee

(UPLAND, CA) - SCNS Sports Foods, marketer and distributor of the popular 1st Tee and 10th Tee nutrition and energy bars, donated $30,000 in 2016 to The First Tee network. As a nonprofit, The First Tee introduces golf and its inherent values to youth at golf courses, in elementary schools and at youth centers, reaching more than 5.3 million young people in 2016.

SCNS founder and COO Bill Stewart said, “I am very proud to support The First Tee professionally through our company donation, and personally as a Board member at The First Tee of Greater Pasadena. I strongly believe in their mission, and have seen firsthand the very positive difference the program can make in the lives of program participants.”

SCNS donates $0.15 from the sale of each 1st Tee Dark Chocolate Chip Trail Mix Bar and 10th Tee Cranberry Trail Mix Bar to The First Tee and select chapters in their network.

“Through after-school and in-school programs, we help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf,” said Jennifer Weiler, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer at The First Tee. “With support from partners like SCNS, The First Tee is able to fulfill our mission and positively impact youth.”

Last year, SCNS signed with PGA TOUR Pro Scott Langley, who was the first alumni of The First Tee program to earn PGA TOUR Membership.

During a recent radio interview, Langley was asked about his favorite of the Nine Core Values taught by The First Tee.  He said, “I would say integrity, because that one important value pours into all the other core values.  Integrity is important both on and off the golf course.”

SCNS Sports Foods, which launched in 2007, distributes seven different types of nutrition and energy bars: 1st Tee Plus+ Oatmeal Raisin Bars, 1st Tee Plus+ Chocolate Peanut Bars, 1st Tee Dark Chocolate Chip Trail Mix Bars, 1st Tee Honey Almond Snack bars, 10th Tee Plus+ Peanut Honey Bars, 10th Tee Plus+ Chocolate Peanut Caramel Bars, and 10th Tee Cranberry Trail Mix Bars.

Recently, SCNS announced the introduction of the Plus+ Bars, which replaced the original four 1st Tee and 10th Tee bars which had been on the market since 2001.  Attendees at the PGA Show in January had the opportunity to sample the new Plus+ bars, which are free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors.

SCNS bars are sold and marketed to golfers through 2,500 green grass outlets and online through the company’s website. For more information on SCNS Sports Foods and the 1st and 10th Tee bars, visit
