Imperial and Youth on Course collaborate for Giving Tuesday E-commerce Partnership
BOURBON, MO – Imperial Headwear, the #1 headwear brand for Private and Resort golf facilities as reported by the Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) in their Member Survey, the last 3 consecutive years, announced a "Giving Back" e-commerce fundraising collaboration with Youth on Course (YOC).
On Tuesday, November 28th, Imperial will donate 20% of all online revenue at ImperialSports.com to YOC. The proceeds going to YOC will help its members maintain the ability to enjoy golf for $5 or less and will provide access to important programs.
"YOC is very appreciative of this Giving Tuesday collaboration with Imperial Headwear," says Youth on Course Executive Director, Adam Heieck. "It's great that Imperial is giving back and we are proud to work with them to help provide youth with access to affordable golf."
#GivingTuesday, Nov. 28th, is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. 2017 marks the sixth year of Giving Tuesday with over $177 million raised online alone.
"I am very excited to collaborate with YOC to help provide for their foundation and its members.

About Youth on Course (YOC)
Born in 2006 out of the Northern California Golf Association, Youth on Course began as the NCGA Foundation - a way to increase the accessibility and affordability of golf for Northern California youth. Within five years, the program was thriving and we expanded opportunities for our members to include caddie programs, paid high school internships and college scholarships.
It quickly became apparent that there was a huge demand for what we were doing outside of Northern California. The NCGA Foundation was re-imagined as a nationwide initiative to grow the game, and the name Youth on Course was born to establish a national identity.To date, we have expanded Youth on Course to 19 regions, subsidized more than 500,000 rounds of golf, hired more than 115 interns and 362 caddies, and award $275,000+ in scholarships annually.
