Second Annual Golf 4 The Kids Tournament June 2 at Red Rock Country Club
144 Golfers to Experience Play at Red Rock Country Club’s Private Mountain Course
It’s the perfect combination! Golfers get the chance to do what they love most, while at the same time help raise funds to assist Nevada’s children who are affected by cancer or inherited bleeding disorders.
The Golf 4 The Kids tournament takes place Monday, June 2, 2014 at the spectacular Red Rock Country Club in Las Vegas. The tournament is limited to 144 golfers who will play on the private Mountain Course which offers challenging play and stunning natural beauty. This year’s tournament is underwritten by a number of community minded organizations including Golf 4 The Kids Gold Sponsor CSL Behring.
Again this year, professional golfer and teaching instructor Perry Parker will play in the tournament. Golfers will also compete in several contests including Longest Drive, Closest to the Hole, Putting Contest and Million Dollar Hole in One.
Additionally, Gaudin Ford is sponsoring a special hole in one providing the winner a three year lease of a Ford Mustang V-6!
Interested golfers can register or get additional information by calling (702) 732-0952 or by emailing Dawn Marie at email@example.com. Several sponsorship opportunities are available.
The second annual Golf 4 The Kids tournament benefits two 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations which provide essential and unduplicated services to children facing serious medical complications, many of whom may not have the funds necessary to pay for treatment. The funds from Golf 4 The Kids will be split equally among the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation.
“Golfers told us this was a win-win last year and they want to do it again,” said Annette Logan, President and Co-Founder of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “Golfers get to do what they love and at the same time help us raise the funds that insure all children get the treatment they need.”
Cure 4 The Kids Foundation provides treatment to children with or without medical insurance or the ability to pay for treatment. Its specialized pediatric clinic, The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada, provides medical treatment to children facing cancer, blood disorders, rare and ultra rare diseases, rheumatological and genetic conditions.
The Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation is Nevada’s only inherited bleeding disorders advocacy organization. The foundation serves more than 600 families throughout Nevada offering a free and medically supervised children’s summer camp, ongoing education programs, workshops and advocacy efforts on behalf of clients.
“Diseases like hemophilia or von Willebrand’s disease require very expensive drugs to prevent a life-threatening bleed,” said Kelli Walters, Executive Director of the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation. “Some people need those drugs daily and the golf tournament helps us provide short term help for those who need it.”
The Red Rock Country Club’s private Mountain Course is one of the Signature courses by Arnold Palmer. His stunning design invites competition and camaraderie and offers panoramic cityscapes and towering mountain views that are unmatched. The 7001-yard, par 72 private course offers a world-class golfing experience.
