SilverStone Group contributed $32,100 to Camp Twin Lakes through the company’s Birdies 4 Charity initiative. During 2014, SilverStone Group pledged to donate $100 for every birdie and $200 for every eagle that Roberto Castro recorded on the PGA Tour. Proceeds from SilverStone Group’s Birdies 4 Charity initiative will benefit Camp Twin Lakes’ scholarships.
“It was fun to partner with Roberto and his wife, Katie, and we feel the initiative came together beautifully. Camp Twin Lakes is an inspiring organization that hosts children from across the country and we couldn’t be happier to support their mission. The donations made for Roberto’s birdies and eagles throughout 2014 will translate into 40 campers being sponsored for a week,” commented John H. Nelson, President.

Jessie Rosenberg, Director of Development at Camp Twin Lakes said, “We are so grateful to SilverStone Group for their support of Camp Twin Lakes through Birdies 4 Charity. Your generous gift of $32,100 for every birdie Roberto Castro made this season will send 40 children with serious illnesses, disabilities or other life challenges to camp! All season, our campers tried to be ‘just like Roberto’ and make birdies of their own at our minigolf course at camp! Camp Twin Lakes is thrilled to have been a part of Birdies 4 Charity 2014. Thank you SilverStone Group for making such a meaningful investment in our campers!”
