n Arnie’s Army goes nationwide Officials of the Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation, the organization created to support golf legend Arnold Palmer’s lifetime mission of philanthropy, announced that Arnie’s March Against Children’s Cancer expanded its footprint to new markets nationwide. In addition to being one of the signature fundraising events at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard, Arnie’s March Against Children’s Cancer is now part of the weekly lineup of special events at three premier PGA Tour events, including the recent World Golf Championships- Bridgestone in Akron, Ohio; the Dell Technologies Championship in Norton, Massachusetts; and the 2017 Tour Championship in Atlanta. Arnie’s March is a unique fundraising model that allows PGA Tour events and their local children’s hospital to showcase the strength and impact of their partnership, providing an opportunity to recognize and honor cancer patients, their families, hospital staff and community supporters. The goal of each Arnie’s March is to generate significant, local philanthropic support for the children’s hospitals in the unique ways that tour events provide.
