Tournament Benefits Cure 4 The Kids Foundation & Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation
The 5th annual Golf 4 the Kids tournament will take place Monday, May 1, 2017, at Red Rock Country Club’s Private Mountain Course.
The golf tournament is a fundraiser for Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, a nonprofit that assists children living with cancer and other life-threatening diseases, as well as the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation, a nonprofit that helps individuals affected by inherited bleeding disorders. Proceeds will be split evenly between the two 501(c)(3) organizations.
Last year’s event raised $60,000. Since inception, more than $200,000 has been raised.
Golf 4 The Kids is played on the private, Arnold Palmer-designed Mountain Course at Red Rock Country Club and will be limited to 144 golfers. The mountain course features emerald green fairways and spectacular mountain views. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., shotgun start at 11:00 a.m.
Sponsorships are available, as well as foursomes ($1,100) and single entry tickets ($300). Players can also take part in competitions that include Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin and a Putting contest. After the tournament, golfers will enjoy a provided lunch, raffle, and a silent auction. Again this year, professional golfer Perry Parker will host the event and play the course with participants. As a child, Parker was diagnosed with hemophilia.
All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Cure 4 The Kids Foundation provides diverse medical services through its two main clinics —The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada and the Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada. The Children’s Specialty Center provides treatment to those affected by cancer, rare and ultra-rare diseases, genetic and rheumatic conditions. In addition, the clinic provides sub-specialty care including the Pediatric Palliative Outpatient Clinic and the Long-Term Follow-Up Clinic for childhood cancer survivors. The Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) of Nevada is the only federally recognized HTC in the state and provides diagnosis and treatment for inherited bleeding disorders such as hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease through its clinics in Las Vegas and Reno. HTC medical staff also conduct on-site comprehensive clinics in Nevada’s rural communities of Ely, Elko, Winnemucca and the Owyhee Indian Reservation. Funds raised through Golf 4 The Kids will allow for treatment of those without medical insurance and those unable to pay for treatment. It is the mission of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation that no patient in need of medical treatment ever is turned away.
The Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation is the state’s premier advocate for those affected by inherited bleeding disorders, including hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease. Every year, the chapter sends a number of children with inherited bleeding disorders, along with a sibling, to a special, medically supervised summer camp for free. Funds raised through Golf 4 The Kids will allow the chapter to keep the week-long camp a no-cost activity for families. Additionally, the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation works with state legislators to keep them up to date on the unique needs of those affected by this disease. The chapter also provides a number of support groups and educational seminars around the state to help keep clients up to date on new research and treatment options.
