Erin Finnegan and The Michael B. Finnegan Foundation were important donors to The Children’s Golf Foundation beginning in 2008. The Finnegan Foundation was created with a mission of supporting charities which donate to children with disabilities after Erin’s husband, Michael, died on September 11, 2001. The Finnegan Foundation holds a special interest in The First Tee Palm Beaches because of Michael’s love of children, golf, and his passion for teaching the life lessons and values that the game offers to young people of all ages.
Behind the annual excitement and energy surrounding the best PGA TOUR players in the game visiting Palm Beach County is the true mission of The Honda Classic – giving back to the children of our community. While The Honda Classic strives to provide Palm Beach County with a premier professional sporting event, the ultimate goal is to positively impact youth in need and give back to the children of the local community.
