A Look Back at 2017

The 2017 Make-A-Wish Golf Classic: All-Around Success for Wishes

The beautiful weather on June 26, 2017, was a perfect complement to the bright generosity on display at the 2017 Make-A-Wish® Golf Classic, held at the Springfield Country Club in West Springfield, MA. Our sponsors, golfers, and donors came together to raise funds for wishes during our busiest wish-granting season of the year.

Special guests included wish recipients Ella, whose wish to go to Walt Disney World® Resort was granted in 2015; and Samantha, 13, whose wish to go to Hawaii was granted in February. We thank all of our tournament sponsors – in particular, our Presenting Sponsor The Salema Family and Dunkin’ Donuts, our Eagle Sponsors Lia Toyota of Northampton and TD Bank – as well as our event committee members, tournament volunteers, and in-kind donors for contributing to the success of the event. 

Proceeds from the 2017 Make-A-Wish Golf Classic will grant wishes for over 10 children with life-threatening medical conditions in Western Massachusetts.
