2015 Charity Golf Classic Raises Big Money
It was another fantastic event of golf, fun and fundraising at Gleneagles Country Club in Dallas on April 27th. McLane’s Charity Classic celebrated its 28th year by raising more than $1 million dollars for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals--for the second year in a row!
This year’s tournament featured five special VIPs: Aydin Davis, Jon Graefser, Ace & Mary Ann “Red” Mohammed and Logan Parker, each of whom have faced serious medical conditions over the past years. Although these children have encountered challenges in their lives, they continue to remain positive and inspire those around them with their strength and courage. It was an honor to conclude the event by presenting each of them with a few choice gifts.
A record number of attendees “perfected” their swings on the golf course including several current and former NBA and NFL players. The event featured a robust silent auction with coveted items including: iPads, a Sony home audio system, autographed footballs and even a year’s worth of chocolate!
We’re fortunate that, with the help of our suppliers, partners and teammates, every activity and event we are privileged to host provides some amount of hope and happiness to the children of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
