Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) October 31, 2014
In an effort to encourage awareness and participation in addressing domestic and global poverty, The Children's Hunger Fund Golf Classic brings supporters, celebrities, and friends together to play a challenging course while delivering hope to suffering children. This year's charity event hopes to live up to the great success of its predecessor and will be held at the Tournament Player’s Club in Valencia on November 17, 2014.
“I’d like to personally invite golfers of all stripes to sign up or create a foursome, because not only will it be a terrific game of golf with plenty of sponsored give-a-ways, you will also be sending food to hungry children in our own community and around the world,” says Dave Phillips, Founder and President of Children’s Hunger Fund.
The tournament funds Children’s Hunger Fund’s “Food Pak” program, which consists of twenty-pound boxes containing non-perishable food. These boxes are assembled by volunteers and then hand delivered to the homes of impoverished children in the United States and around the world. Last year, the 2013 Golf Classic participants sent 370,356 meals to needy families across the globe. According to Children’s Hunger Fund and its supporters, the goal for this year’s tournament is to surpass that number significantly.
Local and national sponsors of the Tournament include American Vision Windows, Bolton, Clover, In-N-Out, Nestle, and UPS. All attending players are encouraged to register at ChildrensHungerFund.org/GolfClassic.
