Over $3.9 billion is raised per year through charitable golf tournaments according to WE ARE GOLF , Steve Mona, CEO of World Golf Foundation (WGF) and administrator of WE ARE GOLF states, “Our primary goal is to communicate to Congressional members that golf is a $68.8 billion per year industry and generates almost $4 billion annually for charities, the majority of which is donated to causes unrelated to the sport,” proving to be a milestone in fundraising worldwide.  KRM’s golf tournaments in the past have shown proof to these facts as this tournament being the prime source of fundraising for the organization going directly to the children and their families of who KRM assists through the battle.

Encouraging all golfers, pros or not, to join in this fun day on the course with a twist to the traditional game of golf!  Start the day off with continental breakfast and coffee to get the blood pumping then enjoy the many fine eats, drinks, and games along the way to your final Tee.  Finish up a day of good-hearted, friendly competition with a reception including an award ceremony, raffle, and catered eats.

“ ‘Chipping Away at Childhood Cancer’ golf event is one of our signature events – a day you can generously give and enjoy a great day on the course”, mentions Teresa Hofhenke, Executive Director of Keaton Raphael Memorial, who has also participated and supported the annual golf tournament for a number of years.

Last year KRM’s golf tournament raised over $45K and this year it’s aimed to shoot above and beyond this number with local golfers and community joining together to raise funding towards hope for children with cancer!
