A sold-out field of golfers took to the course at Salem Country Club on July 9, 2018, for the 26th Annual Make-A-Wish®
Massachusetts and Rhode Island Golf Tournament. With record participation, the tournament was enhanced by beautiful summer weather and tremendous generosity.
Wish recipient Sarah, 14, helped to open the tournament by sharing the story of her wish to go to Hawaii. During the evening program, wish recipient Andrew Marshall spoke about his wish to meet and play with his favorite musician, and also treated the audience to a musical performance. CEO Charlotte Beattie reflected on the importance of community support, particularly during the busy summer season of wish granting, and John Terrio from Auction Knights facilitated a live auction and Fund-A-Wish.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters — including Presenting Sponsor John Hayes of Great Hill Partners and all of our tournament sponsors — along with our Golf Tournament Committee members and event volunteers, $300,000 was raised, which will grant the wishes of 25 seriously ill children!
