Children’s charities throughout Palm Beach County will raise funds through the Boca West Children’s Foundation’s ninth annual $100,000 Golf Challenge.
Over 400 golfers are expected at the day-long event, including brunch, golf, a cocktail reception, live auction and an awards dinner on Nov. 1 at Boca West Country Club, 20583 Boca W Drive.
The cost per golfer is $650 with the majority of the fee going directly to over 30 participating children’s charities. In addition to the funds raised through participating golfers, charities will vie for a portion of the $100,000 funds awarded during the tournament.
The ticket also includes one of the rubber ducks that will be dropped from a crane for a chance to win $2,500. Additional individual ducks for the drop are $50.
Each charity will receive between $2,000 and $10,000, depending on its team’s placement. The foundation has granted over $13 million for projects that serve at-risk youth.
“Participants always enjoy the golf tournament and awards dinner, and the funds raised make a real difference for more than 30 charities who need our help,” said Pamela Weinroth, executive director of Boca West Children’s Foundation.
New this year is a program with Callaway Golf in which each participant receives a $150 gift certificate to shop its store. Thirty percent of all sales spent over $150 will be donated to Boca West Children’s Foundation.
