Online PR News – 29-March-2014 – Dallas/TEXAS – Annually rated as one of the Top 10 Charity Golf Events in Dallas-Fort Worth by the Dallas Business Journal, the 47th Annual Bright Realty Golf Classic presented by American Airlines Center will be held on Monday, May 5, 2014 at The Lakes at Castle Hills in Lewisville, Texas. All proceeds from the event will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters.
This year’s tournament will offer two tee times each for a classic four-man scramble – 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The event is for all skill levels with fun games throughout the day.
New for this year’s event will be the opportunity for businesses or organizations to sponsor a hole on the course then “dress it up” however they like. “We’re encouraging sponsors to get creative at their respective holes– cook and serve food, offer branded gifts, provide live demonstrations of products or services,” says Chris Bright, CEO of Bright Realty. “We hope this unique spin will not only be fun for the golfers, but also for the sponsors.”
A reception and dinner, as well as a silent and live auction will follow the tournament at The Lakes at Castle Hills Clubhouse. The evening event is open to golfers and their families as part of their tournament registration. To register a team or sponsor a hole, visit www.bbbstx.org/GOLF or call 817.905.GOLF.
All proceeds from the day’s events will directly benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. In 2013, the event raised more than $180,000 for the children of North Texas, helping to take 360 children off the waiting list and into caring mentor relationships. Currently, in Texas there are more than 4,500 children still on that wait list.
