By now all of you have heard about the tragic act of evil perpetrated last night on the Las Vegas Strip at the Route 91 concert. We wanted to wait to write to all of you until we had determined the status of our Shift4 family.

Giving Back Through Golf

There’s something wonderful about being able to give back; it’s even more wonderful when you get to give back while enjoying one of your favorite pastimes. Shift4 was once again able to combine giving and golf as we sponsored this year’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open golf tournament, played in our own backyard at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.

Last Chance: Join Us in the Birdies4Shriners Fundraiser

You all know about our Birdies4Shriners fundraiser, right? It’s the program we started last year to pair our love of golf and our desire to help children in need. It functions like a walk-a-thon where Shift4 and our partners, customers, and friends join together to make a contribution for each birdie, eagle, and ace made by Shift4-sponsored PGA TOUR professionals Ryan Moore and Scott Piercy. Last year, the campaign raised an amazing $75,000, which we presented directly to the Shriners Hospitals for Children during the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Scott combines all three; he’s a committed father, an active supporter of several worthy charity organizations, and a world-class golfer.”
