About the Lending Hearts to Kids Golf Invitational
The first annual Lending Hearts to Kids Golf Invitational will take place on September 14 at the St. Clair Country Club.
The shotgun start for an 18-hole round of golf will take place at 1 p.m. Lunch from the snack bar will be provided at the halfway point to refuel golfers for the rest of the tournament.
The event is open to individuals, pairs, and groups of four. The cost to register is $350 per golfer, and sponsorship opportunities are available. Check out the event brochure for pricing and availability.
Skill prizes worth several hundred dollars will be awarded to the first, second and third place event winners following the tournament.
Hole-in-one and closest-to-the-pin competitions will take place at one of the par-3s. The winner of the hole-in-one contest will have their choice of a free two-year lease on a BMW, Mercedes or Jaguar from Bobby Rahal Automotive! A $125 prize will be given to the closest-to-the-pin winners.
If you’re not much of a golfer and would still like to take part in the event, consider purchasing a ticket to the delicious dinner that will be served after the invitational. Enjoy hot and cold gourmet hor d’oeuvres and choose from prime beef tenderloin, herb roasted baby lamb chops, and pasta penne with garlic and grated parmesan for the main dish. Top off your dinner with some cookies for dessert!

About Lending Hearts
Lending Hearts was established in 2011 to provide emotional and social support for children and young adults with cancer and their families. By involving them in unique activities and community outreach, Lending Hearts gives young people affected by cancer a way to cope and know they are not alone in their fight.
The founder of Lending Hearts was very grateful for the support her family received when her youngest sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma, and created the organization to give the same consideration to people in similar situations.
Lending Hearts, the first ever pediatric cancer-focused organization, offers engaging and enriching peer support activities that exposes children to performing and visual arts, world cultures, exercise and nutrition, and other resources found in the region.
