Furyk & Friends program to benefit area youth


The Constellation FURYK & FRIENDS presented by Circle K is preparing to return for a second year to Timuquana Country Club on Oct. 3-9. The 2022 PGA TOUR Champions event will once again include the Community Champions program, which gives MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation supporters the opportunity to designate 100% of the proceeds from their general admission ticket purchase to the nonprofit.

“We’ve had a longstanding friendship and partnership with Jim and Tab and the Constellation Furyk & Friends Foundation,” said MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation founder MaliVai Washington. “Their support has been immeasurable, providing additional resources for our families and supporting our STEM program, among other things.”

To support MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation through the Constellation FURYK & FRIENDS presented by Circle K Community Champions program, fans can purchase general admission tickets by going to am.ticketmaster.com/pgafuryk/buytickets and entering the code “MWYF” when prompted during the purchasing process.

The tournament is once again preparing to bring exciting fan experiences with music, food, family experiences, business networking, social interactions and, of course, golf for the 2022 event.

In 2021, the Constellation FURYK & FRIENDS presented by Circle K generated more than $1.17 million for local charities and with support of this program, the tournament will look to grow that number in the future.

The tournament will feature a 78-player field competing for a $2 million purse. The no-cut event will include pro-ams on Oct. 3, 5 and 6, followed by three rounds of tournament play October 7-9.

All three rounds of the tournament will be broadcast live on Golf Channel, the exclusive cable provider of PGA TOUR Champions.

The MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation is a comprehensive youth development program in Jacksonville’s urban core that provides youth with valuable opportunities to rise to their potential through academic assistance, life skills, enrichment activities, counseling, mentoring, college and career preparation, tennis lessons and more.

The Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation was created in 2010 to help children and families in need. This Jacksonville based nonprofit partners with charities across North Florida to provide project-specific funding and essential programing.

The annual Constellation FURYK & FRIENDS presented by Circle K was created to raise charity dollars to support these partnerships and brings the community together to increase awareness and funding for programs that support education, health care, nutrition and safety for at-risk children and families.

Programs created from the support of the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation in the Jacksonville Community include: Hope for the Holidays, which packs more than 5,000 bags filled with a holiday meal for at-risk families; Operation Shower, which provides car seats, strollers and baby essentials to active military families; Blessings in a Backpack, which feeds thousands of food-insecure children each week of the school year; and Childcare specialists and services to provide medically complex children’s care through Wolfson’s and Community PedsCare.
