We all know there are tens of thousands of children in our state that have life threatening illnesses and diseases – with millions more nationwide. The families affected are turned upside down – financially, emotionally, physically and socially – sometimes literally overnight. It is a burden that only a handful may completely understand, but there is a way to cope and help these affected families. That is where the Starlight Children’s Foundation comes in. With the Florida chapter being founded in 1998, Starlight has help thousands of families cope with devastating news. From diagnosis through treatment, Startlight provides resources for families to educate themselves, understand and cope with a diagnosis and come out the other side better than they went in.
That is what the Annual Starlight Greater Golf tournament is all about. Being in their 10th year, the Starlight Children’s Foundation Charity Golf Tournament has brought together thousands of people and businesses to support seriously ill children and their families. The charity golf tournament takes place Friday, October 19th at The Polo Club of Boca Raton, which is dubbed as one of the most premier private golf clubs in South Florida (click HERE for a tour of their beautiful course.)
Since this charity event is in it’s 10th year, it’s a milestone. A milestone for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a milestone for the thousands of children they help every month and a milestone for the people and sponsors of the event. So this year is going to be BIG. Registered participants: Your registration includes your green fees, cart fees, lunch, beverages as your golfing, a gift bag and a buffet style dinner. Registration starts promptly at 11am, so registered golfers be sure to get there early! Lunch is also from 11am to 12:30 and immediately after golfers will hit the course until approximately 5:30pm. During dinner there will be the awards ceremony as well as the raffles and auctions, which all proceeds benefit the many programs the Starlight Children’s Foundation provides.
Sponsorship and registration information is available HERE. ALL proceeds from this event benefit the Starlight Children’s Foundation and the programs they have in place.
