Posted by on Jul 9, 2011 in Events | 0 comments

Thank you to everyone who participated in Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services’ 2011 Shot-at-a-Million Golf Classic and 19th Hole After-Party. You made a meaningful difference for children in need by raising $175,000.00. Proceeds from the annual event, which was held on May 20 at the Jack Nicklaus designed Angeles National Golf Course in Sunland, will help fund educational and therapeutic-treatment programs for the youngsters served by Hathaway-Sycamores.

More than 250 people took part in this year’s event, including 120 golfers who hit the greens for a good cause, raising money by participating in the “Longest Day of Golf” or the “Nine-Hole Team Scramble.” Ten golfers qualified to take a swing at a hole-in-one and instantly become a millionaire, but no one made the 165-yard shot. The event concluded with a 19th Hole After-Party that was emceed by ever-popular KISS-FM traffic reporter Commander Chuck Street. In addition to catered refreshments and a silent auction, numerous prizes were raffled, with three lucky guests winning trips for two to Costa Rica, Maui and New York. Guests additionally had the opportunity to hear from two, standout high school seniors, Emily Cardinas and Connor Dorothy, who have achieved tremendous academic success. Come this fall, Cardinas will be attending Tulane University and Dorothy will start his freshman year at M.I.T. Both students credit their prestigious acceptances, which were accompanied by full-ride scholarships, to the years of after-school tutoring they received at Hathaway-Sycamores’ Highland Park Family Resource Center. The Hathaway-Sycamores’ board of directors then presented the two teens with additional college scholarships of $2,500 each. Hathaway-Sycamores’ President and CEO William Martone thanked everyone in attendance and applauded their “generous support of Hathaway-Sycamores, particularly during these challenging economic times. As a result of the money you have raised, the children we serve can look forward to much brighter futures.”
