FROM STAFF REPORTS
HORSESHOE BAY — Every year, many children fight life-threatening diseases. And each year, Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas tries to make a dream come true for these kids.
On April 13, you can help grant a child’s wish. All you have to do is play a round of golf at Escondido Golf and Lake Club. The club is hosting the second annual The Hope Golf Classic in hopes of raising enough money to make at least six children’s wishes come true.
Each wish costs about $5,000.
Registration for the tournament is 10 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 11 a.m. There is a limit of 28 four-person teams.
Sponsorship levels vary from $5,000 per team to $150 per player. If someone is unable to participate in the tournament, officials said there are other sponsorship options available.
Email Kelly Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org for registration and sponsorship information.
Along with a round of golf, participants can enjoy lunch on the course provided by Escondido’s Smoke Shack and an awards ceremony immediately following play at the Escondido Great House.
The Escondido Golf and Lake Club is located at 9090 FM 2147 West.
Make-A-Wish helps children with life-threatening illnesses enjoy at least one of their big wishes. Once Make-A-Wish officials determine a child’s eligibility, the organization sends in a “wish team” to work with the child to learn what his or her one true wish is. They then create an unforgettable experience for the youth. The team works hard to make sure each wish is personalized for the recipient and “make it match the wish kid’s idea of a perfect day.”
It all fits into the Make-A-Wish mission statement of granting “wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.”
