The Bradford Children's Charity Fund Annual Golf Tournament raises funds for local kids in the community – this year, for sisters April and Emily Hollander.
April and Emily were born with Multi-Minicore Myopathy – an inherited muscle disorder that makes everyday mobility a challenge.
The Golf Tournament, held at Bradford Highlands Golf Club on June 16, raised $23,232.49, thanks to the support and generosity of local businesses and the community at large. Major Hole-in-One sponsors were Lomonte & Collings and Tupling Insurance, with $10,000 cash prizes, and Verona Travel, with a $10,000 Vacation prize.
Each ticket included a lunch, sponsored by Paul Hawkins-Century 21® Bradford; a 'Surf and Turf' dinner sponsored by Hollander Landscaping Ltd.; and a cart, for a day out on the course.
The tournament was founded in 2011 by Luis Moniz; and co-ordinated by Carlos Silva Century 21® Sales Representatives, and is put on each year, with the help of many volunteers. The Golf Tournament reaches out to children and their families in the local community, to enrich and make a positive difference in their lives.
This is the first year that the tourney completely sold out, requiring extra carts to be brought in from other courses to accommodate the number of golfers. One hundred percent of the proceeds of the tourney were donated directly to the Hollander family.
“Helping these kids is what this tournament is about every year,” said Moniz. “Sponsors, volunteers, everyone that comes out to golf – these truly amazing people in our community allow us to help the kids. I can't thank everyone enough.”
