The CareerBuilder Challenge is coming up, and while it is known for bringing the national spotlight to the Coachella Valley with five days of professional golf play and other entertainment amenities, the PGA TOUR event is significant to the local community for another reason: its meaningful contributions to local nonprofits.
The City of Indio is a proud sponsor of the CareerBuilder Challenge – which will be held January 17-21. Since its inception, Desert Classic Charities, the beneficiary of the CareerBuilder Challenge, has contributed more than $58 million to Coachella Valley nonprofit organizations.
In 2016, total donations were $625,000 –with $110,000 of that amount going to Indio-based charities. Indio charity donations have been between $110,000 and $150,000 for most of the past decade.
Daily tickets to the CareerBuilder Challenge PGA TOUR event are on sale now and include admission to the golf tournament, the CareerBuilder Challenge Concert Series presented by H. N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation, the all-new Vons Fan Pavilion on the 18th green at PGA West Stadium, and two additional on-site hospitality venues.
Huey Lewis and The News and Goo Goo Dolls will headline the 2018 CareerBuilder Challenge Concert Series presented by H. N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation. There are no additional cover charges or upgraded tickets needed for entry into these on-course hospitality venues.
