May 18, 2016


The golf "angels" came through again this year at HomeAid Houston's 10th Annual Charity Golf Tournament, held at Tour 18.  The heavens opened early that morning, but by the official tee-time, the rain had cleared and the air was cool, inspiring a full round of 18 hole delight.  The 140 players and 36 teams boarded their golf carts and were in "full swing".  HomeAid's 36 generous sponsors and 17 dedicated volunteers, helped raise $76,240, up over $12,000 from last year.


 HomeAid also kicked off their inaugural online auction this year, that encouraged golfers and non-golfers alike to register weeks before tee-off time.  Some golfers signed on early that morning and the "bidding wars" began.  There were 37auction packages and a total of 50 items donated, worth $15,000.  There were 74 active bidders with 18 of them non-golfers.  The online auction raised $7,529, up $2,000 from the silent auction held last year. The items varied in value, and all of them created a sense of excitement and anticipation throughout the weeks leading up to the tournament.


 “As the 10th year for HomeAid’s Charity Golf Tournament, it is safe to say that this tournament has become a legend among our many supporters,” said Chris Hawkins, chairman of the Golf Committee.  “The golf was memorable, and the online auction was a resounding success.  A huge thank you to the companies and individuals who donated the auction items, the Golf Committee members, the volunteers and HomeAid’s Sheri Douglass, director of development and Paige Shugart, assistant director of operations and events for making the 10th anniversary of this tournament so successful."


Players also enjoyed a continental breakfast, numerous door prizes and lunch.
