San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
The Diablo Golf Classic, a local golf event that donates to San Diego charities, announces the 5th annual Diablo Golf Tournament to be held Saturday, September 8, 2012 at Twin Oaks Golf Course in San Marcos, CA. All proceeds from the event will be donated directly to San Diego-based charity, "It's All About the Kids."
“We’re very excited for this year’s event and love being able to donate directly back to the kids of San Diego.” said Ryan Sebring, co-founder and tournament director. “I think what makes this charity event different from others is that we literally transform the 18 hole course into an over-sized putt-putt course. From the first tee to the last, each hole presents a challenge or modification to the normal rules of golf. Imagine Caddyshack meets Happy Gilmore meets putt-putt. It will be very unique for sure. We’re only in our 5th year and the response from past participants has been extremely positive. This year, we’ve chosen to donate all proceeds to “It’s All About the Kids”, a non-profit organization that creates new and innovative programs to benefit children’s charities and enhance the lives of less fortunate children and their families. It’s our way of making sure the money makes an impact here in San Diego.”
This year’s event will be held at Twin Oaks Golf Course in San Marcos, CA, and will be a scramble-style team event with golf, prizes, dinner and more all provided as part of the registration fee. Teams and individuals can sign up online at http://www.DiabloGolfClassic.com.
“It's All About the Kids Foundation is so excited to be the charity for this spectacular Diablo Golf Classic,” said Angela Brannon, Co-Founder and Executive Director of IAATK, “Eighteen rounds of fun golf while raising money for our programs that help kids succeed! We will be Partying for a Purpose!”
The Diablo Golf Classic has raised more than $7,000 in its first four years of the event, and has donated 100% of the proceeds back to local San Diego charities, including the “Freedom is Not Free” program for wounded veterans. The goal each year is to continue to raise money, increase participation level, and bring awareness to important causes and charities.
About The Diablo Golf Classic
The Diablo Golf Classic was started in 2008 by a group of friends as a way for golfers of all skill levels to play in a fun, scramble-format golf tournament that took the normal rules of golf and turned them on their head (the Diablo Holes). The goal of the event is not about winning or losing, but rather that there is something for everyone, and at the end of the day, participants all have a good time and raise money for a worthy charity. The event features gifts and prizes for all participants, with ample opportunity throughout the tournament to donate more and earn additional prizes.
