With special guest Tony Finau

We invite you to join us for an unforgettable evening at The First Tee of Utah’s annual Beyond the Green Gala on Saturday, January 12th at the Rio Tinto Stadium Interform Club.

Enjoy a reception, silent auction, and seated dinner with special guest Tony Finau.

Tony’s backstory is defined by winning against the odds. Coming from humble beginnings in Rose Park, Tony learned to play golf with his brother Gipper. With little money and a lot of creativity, Tony’s father Kelepi set up a mattress in his garage for the boys to hit into off of strips of carpet. His greatest assets while learning the game were a father who urged him to dream outrageously, and a mother who was his rock.

Tony has come a long way. The USA Ryder Cup star made his first Masters appearance this year, finishing 10th, and is currently ranked ninth in the world. That’s a lot to be proud of but the things Tony may be even prouder of are his beautiful family of four, his wife Alayna, and the opportunities he has to give back to the community he grew up in. Tony gives back to underprivileged kids in Rose Park through his Tony Finau Foundation and is a great friend and supporter of The First Tee of Utah.

P.S. Tony wears green on Sundays to remember his mom, because it was her favorite color. Green is a favorite color of ours also and we encourage everyone to wear their favorite green at our Beyond the Green Gala.
