Chick-fil-A and Team Up to Support Boy Scouts at Charity Golf Tournament

Boy Scouts Golf TournamentChick-fil-A and teamed up in support of the Boy Scouts of America’s Utah National Parks Council at the Annual Scouting Golf Invitational on May 6, 2013.

The two companies raised more than $1,000 for the Council with a fun promotion at Hole No. 5 at Riverside Country Club.

Golfers purchased mulligans in the hopes of hitting Chick-fil-A’s inflatable cow, which was set up in the middle of the fairway. Each mulligan came with a ticket that was entered into a drawing for a Nike Covert Driver.

Three golfers hit the cow, which is further proof that we should all eat more chicken. And eat more chicken, they will — because each ticket came with a meal from Chick-fil-A.

This was the third year that Chick-fil-A has participated in the Boy Scouts’ annual golf tournament. The restaurant takes its famous inflatable cow to about 20 to 25 golf tournaments a year.

“We support the Boy Scouts and other worthy causes,” says Vern Pyne, marketing director for the American Fork location.

A large group of golfers participated, including well-known faces, like former Brigham Young University football coach LaVell Edwards and local business leaders David Bradford and Jan Newman. employees Erik Chapman and Bobby Colson greeted golfers and sold drawing tickets at the event. The company is donating 1 percent of its revenue, 1 percent of its employees’ time, and 1 percent of its product to the Utah National Parks Council this year.

“Giving back to the community is one of our core beliefs,” says Ken Krogue, founder and president. “It’s part of our identity as a company.”
