The Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr. Pepper Tournament staff held a special press conference April 30, 2009 at the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame to kick off the, Tickets "FORE" Community Causes Program presented by Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center.

The $20 ticket package includes a chance to win five great prizes, a four-day grounds pass to the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr. Pepper (Thursday, August 13 - Sunday, August 16), plus a parking pass good for all four tournament days. The drawing for the five prizes will be held on Wednesday, August 12th at Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center.
