In May 2020, Eric Sedransk created a charity golf auction in support of New York City restaurants and hospital workers affected by COVID-19. What started as a way to give back resulted in more than $100,000 raised in seven days, equating to more than 10,000 meals for frontline workers.
The positive response inspired Sedransk to launch Member for a Day, the world’s leading golf nonprofit fundraising platform. Clients include the American Cancer Society, various First Tee chapters, The Ray Bourque Foundation, The Steve Smith Family Foundation, Amanda Balionis / Puppies & Golf, and many more.
Sedransk's initiative has raised more than $1 million for a variety of nonprofits through once-in-a-lifetime rounds of golf in less than a year.
"I received hundreds of messages from people from all around the world thanking me and wanting to donate additional rounds," Sedransk said. "It was a movement. It was less the total number and more the response from people that made me realize that something is here. I've hit on an emotional element within human beings that works."
