The 4th Annual Golf 4 The Kids Tournament raised $60,000 on June 6. The money will split evenly between two non-profits: Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation.
Red Rock Country Club hosted this year's tournament on their private Mountain Course.
The Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation will use the proceeds to send children to a medically supervised summer camp known as Camp Independent Firefly. With physicians and medical staff on-site, the kids will have fun in an outdoor environment and learn the skills to become independent while dealing with their disorder.
“It is so gratifying to see a team of community members, corporations, golfers, and volunteers come together to wholeheartedly support a cause that we know is so important to our community,” said Kelli Walters, Executive Director of the Nevada Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation. “Because of the generosity of this group, we know many kids with inherited bleeding disorders will have a life-changing experience at Camp Independent Firefly.”
Cure 4 The Kids Foundation will use the proceeds to fund the Charity Care Program. The program aims to help families pay for medical treatment regardless of whether or not they have insurance.
Annette Logan, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation CEO and co-founder, said that she was thankful for the support of those who gave their time to play in the tournament. “As a nonprofit organization, these funds provide real benefit to our patients who are without medical insurance or cannot pay for treatment,” she said.
