Chipping in for Children is a series of charitable golf tournaments, raising funds and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
To find a uniquely different way to fundraise for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) by bringing community partners, retailers, and national vendors together to streamline cause marketing initiatives into one powerful program. Walmart is one of the largest corporate partners of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals so they seemed a natural fit for the Chipping in for Children effort.
Incorporating techniques employed in our Power of the Pink program, Cliffedge set out to build local ‘Walmart sized’ golf tournaments that raise significant dollars for regional Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In-store activation, social media, and email campaigns support the cause. Local and National partners tie-into the program allowing them to give back to the community while enjoying a fun, unique event.
