LPGA Players Help Charity Event Prosper 2009: Owner Matt

LPGA players help charity event prosper

New owner Matt Swanson has renamed Sellinger’s Classic 3 Golf Course the Swanson Golf Center and placed the emphasis on teaching at the northwest
Houston facility. There is something special about playing in a charity golf tournament. But deep down inside, a golfer — whether they are scratch or a 20-handicap — has to get a warm feeling when they know how much their contribution means to various organizations. Last week, the 21st annual Randalls For Kids Charity Golf Tournament was played at Canongate’s Oaks and Panther Trail courses at The Woodlands Resort. The tournament raised $300,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston. In 21 years, the event has raised nearly $4 million. All proceeds have been used to fund the Boys & Girls Clubs’ education and career development programs and for the Clubs’ operating expenses. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston include 15 clubs in Harris, Galveston, Waller and Fort Bend counties that serve about 15,000 youths per year.
“I can’t tell you how much this means to us,” said Boys & Girls Club director Angela Hodson after the tournament. “This is a huge fund-raiser and it is so meaningful to us. More and more kids need these clubs more than ever.”
