4th Annual Golf Invitational Presented by Perricone Farms
Raises Over $200K for Miracles For Kids Families in Need
A day of friendly competition at #1-rated Santa Ana Country Club for luxury prizes such as David August custom men’s clothing and a Mercedes Benz GLB250 resulted in vital assistance for families of critically-ill children.
IRVINE, Calif. – A total of 16 event sponsors, 132 golfers, 18 volunteers, and 25+ vendors gathered to enjoy a day of sunshine on the green at the 4th Annual Miracles for Kids Golf Invitational presented by Perricone Farms at the prestigious Santa Ana Country Club on Monday, July 25th. The much-anticipated fundraiser – which brought in over $200,000 in 2021 – proved even more successful this year, with a record-breaking grand total of over $215,000raised. These funds will help to support programs for hundreds of MIracle’s families in need of vital financial assistance, wellness resources, housing, and basic needs while struggling to care for a critically-ill child.
On Monday, participants were invited to explore Orange County’s championship golf course, recently ranked #1 by Golfweek following a $6.5M update to pathways and landscaping. The all-inclusive, full-day event included the chance to win over 125 opportunity item prizes, such as a private jet for four and day of golf at Pebble Beach, luxury stays, or wine and golf outings. Exciting on-course contests included the $250,000 Shoot Out, $5,000 Putting Contest, 19th Hole “Guess Your Distance,” “Beat the Pro,” and more. This year’s hole-in-one prize was ownership of a 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB250 and, while no one won, all players still enjoyed an elevated day of play with tacos and tequila at the course’s “Party Point,” plus John Daly’s and other signature drinks alongside delectable tastings and treats throughout the course.
Celebrity appearances included NFL Superbowl Champion Matt Vanderbeek, MLB 1st/2nd baseman Rich Amaral, MLB Catcher Brett Mayne, HGTV’s “Flip or Flop” Host Steve Cederquist, the Emmy Board, Wordle! iOS app Creator Steven Cravotta, female pro golfer Scout Hammond, RHOC Slade Smiley and Gretchen Rossi, NFL Boardmember/Costa Mesa Mayoral Award Recipient Kirk Bauermeister, and many more.
Congratulations to all prize winners and special thanks to this year’s sponsors for supporting a hugely successful event:
