What happens when you combine 450 golfers, 85 sponsors, 75 volunteers and a fierce commitment to helping children in crisis? Well, you raise $173,588 to be exact.
This year’s Boys & Girls Harbor Golf Invitational – powered by Shell Deer Park – was a huge success!
The tournament took place at The Clubs of Kingwood in Kingwood, Texas on Aug. 29 and benefited Boys & Girls Harbor, which serves children in crisis who live in Harris County, Texas along with its surrounding counties.
“This year’s event would not have been successful without the tremendous support from Shell Deer Park and all of the site’s employees who worked so hard to make the event enjoyable for everyone who played in the tournament,” said Don Sweat, the CEO and president of Boys & Girls Harbor.
Tournament sets fundraising record
Shell Deer Park served as the presenting sponsor for this year’s tournament, which set a new fundraising record of $173,588. Last year’s tournament raised $131,000. All of the funds go directly to Boys & Girls Harbor.
