A Look Back at 2016: Setting the Course to Wishes Come True

The 24th Annual Make-A-Wish® Golf Tournament

For the first time in the history of the Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island Golf Tournament, a wish recipient won the event! Congratulations to Gregory, who led his foursome to first place (team net) as he anticipates his wish to play golf at legendary Pebble Beach in California, which will be granted this August.  Gregory and his family were among nearly 100 golfers who enjoyed playing Salem Country Club’s challenging course on June 27 in Peabody, MA, to support Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, including Presenting Sponsor John Hayes of Great Hill Partners, as well as our participants, in-kind donors, and volunteers, close to $190,000 was raised – enough to grant the wishes of 23 seriously ill children.  We are very grateful to our tournament supporters, long-standing and new alike, for continuing an inspiring tradition of golf and giving through our 24th Annual Make-A-Wish Golf Tournament!
