1st Annual #GivingTuesday Auction

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. This year The First Tee of Greater Ocala will have a number of initiatives taking place in conjunction with #GivingTuesday. Stay tuned to Facebook and Twitter for details in the upcoming days!

Volunteer Info

Board of Directors' Information

The First Tee of Greater Ocala is looking for a few good men or women to fill available spots on our Board of Directors. This is a working Board. Members are required to participate in fund raising endeavors, attend monthly Board meetings, participate in various committees and make a small financial contribution. Time commitment ranges from 2-6 hours per month. Our goal is to fill the available positions with strong community leaders who have a passion for helping children and the motivation to help our organization grow. We have built a tremendous base, but without the help of a strong Board of Directors the organization will be challenged to continue to meet our burgeoning needs.
