Ushering in spring under beautiful skies and the promise of wishes coming true, the 2018 Make-A-Wish<sup>®</sup> Golf Outing at Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington was a day to remember! On Monday, May 14, close to 100 participants took to the links at one of Rhode Island’s premier courses along picturesque Narragansett Bay. The tournament brought together top business and philanthropic leaders from the region to support the Make-A-Wish mission.
Following their time on the course, golfers enjoyed a cocktail reception and a dinner program emceed by Michelle Muscatello from WPRI-TV, who is a member of our Rhode Island Advisory Council. The evening concluded with an inspiring show of generosity as tournament participants contributed enough through Fund-A-Wish to grant the full wish of a Rhode Island teen.
We extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our generous supporters and in particular, to Eagle Sponsors Delta Dental of Rhode Island and Bill and Doris Loehning. We are also grateful to our tournament committee members, program participants, event volunteers, and in-kind donors, all of whom contributed to the event’s success. Proceeds from the Make-A-Wish Golf Outing surpassed $95,000, which will fulfill the wishes of 11 Rhode Island children!
