The nonprofit, faith-based organization, Drive For Water is once again raising money for developing countries through golf tournaments, including the 2014 Golf Tournament to be held on Friday, September 12, 2014 at Monarch Beach Golf Links starting at 11am and ending with cocktails and appetizers at 4:30pm which will then be followed by an auction, awards and dinner.
Golfers and everyone who is interested in making a difference in the lives of those impacted by contaminated water can register for the event that day, from 10am until 11am. Proceeds from the tournament are to benefit the independent, nonprofit corporation called NO Thirsty Child. Contaminated water is the #1 cause for death in developing countries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approximately 801,000 kids age 5 years or younger die each year from diarrhea resulting from unsafe drinking water, lack of access to sanitation or inadequate availability of water for basic needs including hygiene.
Golfers typically view water on a course as a hazard but during the tournament they will come to see it as something people in developing countries hope for, so they can drive away disease, and improve the lives of young children. Participants in the tournament located in Dana Point, CA will enjoy this exceptional golf resort for its beautiful oceanfront view, its challenging hole presentation and its world-renowned recognition for being one of the top 10 golf resorts in Southern California, top ten resort courses in North America and for having one of the best golf shops. Golfers can participate in one of several sponsorship opportunities, including the following donation levels or they can provide a donation only without participating in golf rounds.
