Chains For Wishes Disc Golf Tournament Supports Make-A-Wish

Date

August 13, 2013

Location

Asheville, NC

Local disc golf tournament, Chains for Wishes, started by Asheville resident James Mayfield, had its most successful turnout to date, selling out and raising $6,200 on Saturday, August 3 to benefit Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina. Ninety-six disc golfers played two 18-hole rounds, with the winning team receiving gift certificates for discs. In addition to registration fees, the event raised vital funds for wishes by hosting several raffles, a “closest to the pin” challenge, and held an after party at Hickory Tavern with a silent auction.  And, local presenting sponsor BT’s Burger Barn was instrumental in the events success.

Six-years strong, Chains for Wishes generous donation represents the funding of an entire wish that will be granted to a child in the community, at an average cost of $6,000 per wish, support is critical. A wish come true empowers children with life-threatening medical conditions to fight harder against their illnesses. When they are granted a wish, they get more than just a great experience for the day, two days, or a week. That experience improves the quality of life for them and their entire family.
