Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 23, 2011
The Shell Houston Open Golf Tournament has supported local and national charities for decades. The 2011 tournament, which takes place March 28 to April 3, invites world class professional golfers to compete for top honors, but the real winners are the charities, which receive thousands of dollars to continue their support of the community. The core charities include the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys & Girls Harbor, the Chinquapin School and more. Proceeds are raised through ticket sales and merchandise sales. Furthermore, tickets are still available and can be purchased online at the Shell Houston Open Golf Tournament website.
The Shell Houston Open sees top caliber golfers from around the world compete in Humble, Texas, an idyllic suburb of Houston. Last year’s winner, Anthony Kim will have to defend his title from an international field of players. Notable previous winners have included Vijay Singh, David Duval and Stuart Appleby.
