Pre-Purchase Mulligans – Proceeds benefit CFIC’s Political Action Committees (PACs)

Save time, skip the line and pre-purchase mulligans for your team. Mulligans are $50 per team (8 mulligans) or $15 per player (2 mulligans). Mulligans can also be purchased on-site. All mulligans must be purchased with personal funds only.

  • Why does CFIC require personal funds for mulligans?

Proceeds from mulligan sales benefit CFIC’s PAC which helps CFIC support campaigns for business-friendly legislators who influence bills that impact retailers’ profitability and business operations – ultimately keeping jobs in-state. Under NC Law, corporate checks and corporate credit cards are NOT permitted for mulligan purchases. Only personal funds can be accepted.

The grocery industry needs a strong voice in legislation and that voice is CFIC.
