How Can 18 Holes Of Golf Save A Life?

14th Annual Golf Tournament May 16 at Red Hill Country Club.

14th Annual Golf Tournament May 16 at Red Hill Country Club.

Once a year, 140+ golfers come together to spend a day playing golf, meeting and making friends while doing something really great: helping families with a seriously ill or injured child.  These families come to great hospitals in our area to get life-saving treatment – families just like yours and mine. So many are in desperate situations, for no other reason except their child got ill or badly injured. Some travel hundreds or thousands of miles to come here; some live in the area.

They all have two things in common:

  1. They have a child that needs specialized care and support.
  2. Steven’s Hope

As a golfer or a golf fan, you can make a big difference in the lives of families by supporting the 2016 Drives To Save Lives Golf Classic. The event will take place Monday, May 16th at Red Hill Country Club in Rancho Cucamonga and all proceeds go to Steven’s Hope for Children to help fund the programs offered to families at a time when they need it most.

Event sponsorships are available up to the Title Level Sponsorship of $10,000 which includes golf registration for eight (8). Although the “Event” Sponsor ($5,000) and  Golf Cart Sponsor ($3500) are sold,  $3,000 would allow your company to be a Dinner Sponsor (one of two), Lunch Sponsor, Reverse Pong Sponsor or the Grand Prize Sponsor. Additionally, companies can also be a “Hole” sponsor for $300 if added to a foursome or $400 if not included with a foursome. Please review the attached registration forms for more details.

Individuals and foursomes can reserve their spot now on a first come-first served based for the April 1 opening for non-sponsors. The cost of a foursome is $1200 and an individual is $300. Each registered and paid golfer will have a ticket to the Drives To Save Lives Golf Classic Banquet and Auction, immediately following golf. Additional Banquet and Auction Tickets will be available April 1 on a limited basis for $75 per person.

For the individuals that would like to volunteer for the event are encouraged to sign-up using the online volunteer registration form.

Over the years, we’ve heard about from people who were unable to attend the event but still wanted to support Steven’s Hope at this event. This year, for the first time, several of the Silent Auction items will be available via online bidding! So even if you can’t be there, you can still be “at” the event. Who knows, the auction might even be streamed!!!  And, if you  have an item with a value of $150 or more that you would like to donate to the auction, please let us know!  Tickets to events, excursions, private gatherings, one-on-one meet and greets, and weekend getaways are always great ideas.

Now, it’s up to you. Today, take a moment and see how this great event supporting so many can fit into your schedule. Today, commit to a sponsorship level you are comfortable with, complete the form and send it in. Today, invite friends, family and associates to join you at the Drives To Save Lives Golf Classic. Your decisions will help families in more ways than you can imagine. Your financial support will continue to bring them hope for their child; hope for their family; hope for the future. You bring them Steven’s Hope.

James Worthy To Speak At Steven’s Hope Banquet

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.
