We are always searching for juniors that can be assisted through the Foundation who are 12 years or older who have shown exceptional skill in the game, have a financial need for assistance and the value system to work hard for their goals.
Golf professionals, guidance counselors or people in the golf community in the Syracuse, NY or Atlanta, GA can recommend junior golfers for the program. The Esther Cannizzo Junior Golf Foundation will provide assistance for coaching, tournament play and/or equipment.
Our goal is to provide financial assistance to allow these juniors to realize their potential and achieve their goals.
