Els' Biggest Challenge? Raising $30 Million

Ernie Els
Saying he wants to be remembered for his battle against autism rather than his victories on the golf course, superstar golfer Ernie Els is rolling out his second annual “Els for Autism Golf Challenge” that hopes to attract more than 2,000 golfers, more than 10,000 donors, and more than $2 million in contributions.
The proceeds will benefit Els’s dream of creating the Autism Center of Excellence, which the golfer’s foundation describes as “a $30 million first-of-its-kind project that will feature a state-of-the-art education and research facility as well as a global digital learning platform to families all over the world with children on the autism spectrum.”
