A day of friendly competition at #1-rated Santa Ana Country Club for luxury prizes such as David August custom men’s clothing and a Mercedes Benz GLB250 resulted in vital assistance for families of critically-ill children
IRVINE, Calif., July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — 16 event sponsors, 132 golfers, 18 volunteers, and 25+ vendors gathered to enjoy a sunny day on the green at the 4th Annual Miracles for Kids Golf Invitational presented by Perricone Farms at the Santa Ana Country Club on Monday, July 25th. The much-anticipated fundraiser raised a record-breaking total of over $215,000.

On Monday, participants explored Orange County’s championship golf course, recently ranked #1 by Golfweek following a $6.5M grounds update. The all-inclusive, full-day event included chances to win over 125 opportunity item prizes, such as a private jet for four and day of golf at Pebble Beach, luxury stays, or wine and golf outings. Exciting on-course contests included the $250,000 Shoot Out, $5,000 Putting Contest, 19th Hole “Guess Your Distance,” “Beat the Pro,” and more. This year’s hole-in-one prize was ownership of a 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB250 and, while no one won, all players still enjoyed an elevated day of play with tacos and tequila at the course’s “Party Point,” plus John Daly’s and other signature drinks alongside delectable tastings and treats throughout the course.
