Lehi, UT (July 6, 2016) – With a goal to make dreams come true for children battling life-threatening illnesses, the We Promise Foundation recently invited sponsors and supporters to tee up and round the turn – raising $53,000 through its 1st Annual Putting for Promises Golf Tournament.
Joining the foundation for the tournament were a full flight of golfers, who had a chance to hit the links at the Thanksgiving Point Golf Course – a 7,714 yard course covering 200 acres of land, making it the largest course in Utah. Joining the tournament golfers at course were 10 We Promise children who arrived by limousine and received cheers and high-fives from We Promise board members and volunteers as they traveled across a red carpet rolled out just for them.
The beneficiaries were thrilled to have the opportunity to cruise around the course on golf carts – learning from tournament participants how to hold an iron and sink a putt.
“We are immensely grateful for the generosity of our sponsors, the kindness of our volunteers, and the support of so many who either attended our events or kindly donated items for charitable auction,” said Phil Richards, chairman of the We Promise Foundation. “It is only thanks to their tremendous contributions that we are able to give courageous children a dose of healing and hope through the gift of a dream fulfilled.”
Altogether, the We Promise Foundation has raised more than $8,000,000 to make dreams come true for children fighting life-threatening illnesses.
