Marshall University fans and supporters who purchase special weekly admission badges to this summer's Greenbrier Classic can benefit the Marshall University Foundation under the Greenbrier Classic's Badges for Charity program.
The Greenbrier Classic is an official PGA Tour event which takes place July 2-8 at the Old White Course in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Last year, the classic was designated the "Best in Class Tournament on the PGA TOUR" by the PGA TOUR itself.
The Marshall University Foundation will receive 30 percent of the proceeds of all badges purchased on its behalf. The badge costs are: $159 for the Weekly Grounds Badge (increasing to $189 May 1), $285 for the Benefactor Badge, $495 for the Alumni Badge and $5,000 for the Clubhouse Badge.
The Weekly Grounds Badge provides tournament admittance for the entire week, parking, and tickets to the 2012 Greenbrier Classic Concert Series.
