More than 500 golfers will golf for “our kids” at the Boca West Children’s Foundation Eighth Annual $100,000 Golf Challenge on Monday, March 30 at Boca West Country Club. Boca West Children’s Foundation is celebrating its 10th year and $9 million raised for projects that serve at-risk youth. The event will begin with brunch and registration at 11 a.m., golf at 1 p.m. and a cocktail reception and auction at 5:30 p.m.
Boca West Children’s Foundation has raised $9 million for at risk children since its inception in 2010 and currently works with 24 children’s charities.
The 24 local children’s charities will vie for a portion of the $100,000 funds awarded during the tournament. Each charity will receive between $2,000 and $10,000, depending on its team’s placement.
“Golfers are invited to come out and experience all four of Boca West Country Club’s championship golf courses,” said Pam Weinroth, Executive Director/COO of Boca West Children’s Foundation. “It will be a great day of golf and a wonderful way to help 24 local children’s charities and the kids that these organizations serve.”
Golfers will have the opportunity to golf on courses than have been ranked among the best in the world, alongside St. Andrews, Pine Valley, Pebble Beach and Pinehurst.
Just before the golf tournament begins, hundreds of plastic ducks will drop 40 feet from a net lifted in the air by a crane. The owner of the duck closest to the pin will win $2500.
Funds raised at the golf tournament will benefit at-risk children and their families in Palm Beach County. The organization funds project-based programming at 24 local children’s organizations, allowing Boca West Children’s Foundation to reach more than 5,000 children daily in meaningful ways. Boca West Children’s Foundation volunteers give more than 250,000 hours of their time annually to its partner agencies with which the organization works.
Tickets are $650 per person and include one duck. Individual ducks for the duck drop are $50. Visit bocawestfoundation.org to purchase tickets.
