The 2013 Steven’s Hope for Children Drives To Save Lives Golf Classic will be held at the beautiful Red Hill Country Club on Monday, May 20. The event was moved this year to the Rancho Cucamonga golf course.
This year, former Los Angeles Laker and NBA Hall Of Fame Member, James Worthy will be the featured guest speaker at the auction and banquet following the tournament. Known as “Big Game” James will be sharing stories of his time sharing the hardword with other Laker stars on their way to winning NBA Championships. Entry to the banquet is included with the fee to play in the golf tournament. Individual tickets to the banquet are available on a very limited basis for $75 each.
However, Mr. Worthy won’t be the only celebrity attending the day’s festivities. Several NFL and MLB stars are scheduled to attend the tournament and will be playing with selected sponsors. Some celebrities may be available to play with foursomes as a “fifth” by upgrading to “Celebrity” status with the payment of an additional $1000 to Steven’s Hope. The tournament is expected to sell out again this year.
AMPM returns again as the Presenting Sponsor for the golf classic. Sponsorships vary in benefit and price. Remaining sponsorships include an Event Sponsor which includes golf for 8, two celebrities to play with, signage, and more for $5,000. Dinner, Cart, Grand Prize sponsors are $3,000 and include one foursome, signage, a celebrity and much more. Additional sponsorships range from $100 to $2500. Individual players are $250 each and a foursome is $1,000.
The banquet and auction will take place in the main dining room of Red Hill Country Club. Prizes that will be auctioned off include a suite for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, dinner for 8 with James Worthy, and golf for four at Spyglass and Pebble Beach Golf Courses. Business are encouraged to contact Steven’s Hope to discuss any in-kind donations that could be made for the auction.
The golf tournament began eleven years ago as the first event hosted by Steven’s Hope to raise funds and awareness for the Upland based charity. Steven’s Hope was started by Tony & Sandy Cappelli after the death of their son, Steven. Since then, the tournament has grown in popularity and was renamed to the Drives To Save Lives Golf Classic.
Registration will open at 8:30 and following the ceremonial balloon release the shotgun start will begin at 10:30 with the banquet following at 4:00PM.
