Wishes for Children Foundation

The 8th Annual Wishes for Children Charity Golf Classic has a new venue, new sponsorship benefits and lots of new surprises. Over the past 7 years, the Wishes for Children annual golf event has raised over $65,000 for Rancho Damacitas, a group home located in Temecula wine country for abused and neglected children.

After two years at another venue, Wishes for Children Foundation has returned to Temecula Creek Inn to host this premier golf event. Amateur and avid golfers alike will find the 27-hole championship golf course exquisite and challenging with a backdrop of 300 acres of rustic beauty, dramatic elevation changes and sweeping mountain views.

A chance to win a trip for two to Pebble Beach and admission to the 2011 Lexus Champions for Charity National Championship is up for grabs at the VIP Banquet following the golf event. Lexus of Riverside selected Wishes for Children Foundation as the 2011 recipient of the Lexus Champions for Charity auction package.The package also includes a $500 donation to the organization and a vehicle for the hole-in-one contest at the August 26th event.The opening bid for the trip to Pebble Beach will begin at $3,500.

Rubber Ducks will take center stage immediately following the golf event at the 1st Annual Rubber Ducky Race. Participants are encouraged to purchase a rubber duck to race in the stream at Temecula Creek Inn. The first duck to reach the fountain will win half the funds raised for the race. With over 500 ducks available, the winner could potentially walk away with over $6,000. The winner does not have to be present to win or be involved in the golf event.

True to their mission of supporting other organizations, Wishes for Children Foundation donates funds raised at the golf tournament to Rancho Damacitas. At initial intake to the group home, most children have nothing more than the clothes on their back. Rancho Damacitas will use the proceeds to purchase clothing, school supplies, dorm room necessities and personal items for the children.

The 8th Annual Wishes for Children Charity Golf Classic is scheduled for Friday, August 26th at 11am. Sponsorships, tee box marketing opportunities and player spots are still available. Additional information regarding the 8th Annual Wishes for Children Charity Golf Classic can be found at www.WishesforChildren.org.
