Golf Challenge Series

15+ Regional Events across the U.S. and Canada between May and September. Raise $13,000 or more to qualify your team for the Grand Finale in Palm Beach, Florida.

Wine Spectator & Cigar Aficionado Pro-Am

Every year, top tour pros are joined by an enthusiastic group of amateurs, thrilled to be inside the ropes with a legendary cast of some of the greatest names in golf, and there is support from a dedicated panel of prestige brands. At the helm alongside Ernie and Liezl are the event’s founders, and close personal friends of the Els family, Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Cigar Aficionado and Wine Spectator magazines, and Johann Rupert.

Liezl’s Tea Party

Each year, a group of 250 ladies are invited into the Els’ home to celebrate a new country and culture. Guests are always encouraged to dress to theme as they join us for an afternoon of fundraising.

Light It Up Blue

Each year, we ‘Light it up Blue’ with The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse to celebrate World Autism Awareness Month in April.
