Waterdown ON - The Great Lakes Tour is pleased to introduce Play My Auctions as the newest partner of the Tour. The partnership is effective immediately and will see a great benefit to both players and fans of the Great Lakes Tour.
Play My Auctions is a new online platform, being led by CEO Kelly Chandler, that gives fans and followers the chance to bid on items or equipment being used by athletes or performers in live events. With crowdfunding and fundraising becoming very relevant in the golf industry, Play My Auctions has the potential for athletes to utilize their networks and raise funds for a charity close to their heart or help to assist in building finances toward their professional career.
Participating golf professionals will have the option of putting any piece of equipment or apparel up for auction during a Great Lakes Tour event and fans or followers will be able to bid on that piece as the event unfolds. A large portion of proceeds will go directly to the player and his cause...
"At Play My Auctions Inc., we feel we have created an interactive platform, providing fans on a Global Scale the ability to engage with their favorite athletes during live events. We are the first to offer such an experience and we look forward to making an impact in the sports and entertainment industries. We are truly humbled by the opportunity to be working with the Great Lakes Tour and are excited about our collaboration and future growth.” CEO Kelly Chandler, Play My Auctions Inc.
The Great Lakes Tour plans to utilize Play My Auctions in upcoming events like the GLT Barrie Classic at Settlers' Ghost and the Southern Ontario Open to name a few. Items up for auction, while the player is using them, will be golf balls, signed gloves, signed hats, official scorecards and much much more. Once the event is over the items are collected, signed by the player, authenticated and shipped to the winner. The winning bidder will also be able to download a certificate of authenticity providing the providence.
"We are very excited at this partnership as it offers a great platform for our members and followers to be a part of history." Says Great Lakes Tour President Jim Kenesky. "Kelly came to us earlier this spring and gave some great insight into what impact his solution gives to the players, charities, fans, the GLT and even host golf courses. We know the Tour has a great depth of talent and many will go on to have wonderful careers. Who knows where the next Canadian major champion or Gold medalist will come from, but fans will have the opportunity to bid on items and own a piece of history before they make it big."
As part of the partnership, Play My Auctions will dedicate funds to the GLT Playoffs season-ending purse. Players’, inside the top 24 on the GLT Order of Merit, with the most auction sales at the end of the season, will receive a cash bonus.
