It’s back! The third annual Golf 4 The Kids Tournament will take place at Red Rock Country Club where golfers will play on the scenic and exclusive fairways of the club’s private Mountain Course on Monday, June 1, 2015. Best of all, tournament proceeds will benefit two local nonprofit organizations.

We’re pleased to announce professional golfer, teaching instructor and inherited bleeding disorders spokesperson, Perry Parker, will again serve as host and play in the tournament.

The event is open to 144 golfers who are encouraged to reserve their spot early by calling (702) 732-0952 or by emailing Dawn Marie Pavuk at dmpavuk@cure4thekids.org. Information is also available about a range of sponsorship opportunities.

Golfers will enjoy 18 holes on one of Arnold Palmer’s Signature courses offering panoramic cityscapes and towering mountain views. In addition to 18 holes, golfers are invited to take part in several contests including Longest Drive, Closest to the Hole, Putting Contest and Million Dollar Hole in One. In addition, Ford Country in Henderson is donating the three year lease of a new Mustang Coupe to the golfer who gets a hole in one on the designated hole within the tournament.

The tournament will support the worthwhile efforts of two valuable nonprofit organizations who provide unmatched services to Nevada’s children affected by cancer and inherited bleeding disorders.

During last year’s successful tournament, more than $46,000 was raised and split equally between the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF Nevada) and Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, both of which are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.

NHF Nevada used those funds to send a number of kids with hemophilia and von Willebrand disease to a special medically supervised summer camp for free.

“Treating inherited bleeding disorders is unlike many other diseases—there is no cure,” said Kelli Walters, Executive Director of the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation. “Because these are lifelong conditions and treatment requires expensive drugs to prevent life-threatening bloods, we need to do all we can to support this community.”

Cure 4 The Kids Foundation used the funds to support its Charity Care Program which provides life saving treatment to children with cancer and other diseases, who are without medical insurance or the ability to pay for treatment.

“Unfortunately, kids are affected by cancer everyday and the disease does not choose only those families who can pay for treatment,” said Annette Logan, President and Chief Executive Office of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “Our Charity Care Program allows us treat any child with cancer and never have to turn anyone away.”

Golf 4 The Kids would not be a success without the dedication and support of many community minded sponsors. Our returning sponsors include: Gold Sponsor: CSL Behring; Bronze Sponsors: Novo Nordisk, Baxter and the Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada.

Red Rock County Club’s private Mountain Course is a 7001-yard, par 72 course.

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 dmpavuk@cure4thekids.org.  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.
