You have to hand it to the PGA Tour folks who are organizing the "Drive to a Billion" celebration on such short notice. After all, who'd a thought they would have reached the magical number by East Lake when it was originally believed this was going to happen next year?
Well, the celebration sounds touching:
A public celebration of the milestone is planned for Tuesday at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga., in conjunction with the season-ending TOUR Championship. A giant cake will be cut and children from the East Lake Foundation -- representing the many charities that benefit from the money raised by PGA TOUR, Champions Tour and Nationwide Tour events - will be holding a host of colorful "Thanks a Billion" balloons.
Pretty soon, these East Lake Foundation kids should be eligible for SAG cards after all of the photo ops they've had to do.
