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 [email protected]. 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—theere 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.”
Red Rock County Club’s private Mountain Course is a 7001-yard, par 72 course.
Golf 4 The Kids would not be a success without the dedication and support of many community minded sponsors. Returning sponsors include: Gold Sponsor: CSL Behring; Bronze Sponsors: Novo Nordisk, Baxter and the Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada.
Cure 4 the Kids Foundation provides treatment to children in Nevada facing life-threatening diseases such as cancer, inherited bleeding disorders, rheumatological and genetic conditions regardless of family income or presence of medical insurance. Through its two programs, The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada and the Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada, thousands of patients have received treatment, some at no cost. www.cure4thekids.org
The Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation is Nevada’s only bleeding disorders advocacy organization. The foundation serves more than 600 families throughout Nevada offering a children’s summer camp, ongoing education programs, support groups and advocacy efforts on behalf of clients. www.hfnv.org
