Bright Realty is proud to return as title sponsor for the 2017 Golf Classic benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) taking place on Monday, May 1, at The Lakes at Castle Hills. This year, BBBS is celebrating the 50th year of the annual golf tournament and the 8th consecutive year that Bright Realty has served as lead sponsor.
The Bright Realty Golf Classic raises funds to match children in North Texas with a mentor who can enrich, empower and encourage them to reach their highest potential. In Dallas and Collin counties alone, there are more than 1,000 children currently on a waiting list for a Big Brother or Big Sister.
Research has shown that BBBS mentoring works. Children with a Big Brother or Big Sister show improvement academically, socially and at home. A child with a Big Brother or Big Sister, for example, is 52 percent less likely to skip school and 98.2 percent of little brothers and sisters in the program are promoted to the next grade level.
By enjoying a day at The Lakes, and donating to BBBS, you directly support children in our community, said Chris Bright, Bright Realty CEO. No matter how little or big the amount, donating makes a difference in the lives of young people around us. In fact, I have never personally found an organization that I believe has the potential to change the world our children will live in more than Big Brothers Big Sisters.
The Bright Realty Golf Classic has previously been ranked one of the Top 10 Charity Golf Tournaments in Dallas-Fort Worth by the Dallas Business Journal. The event is a great opportunity to experience The Lakes at Castle Hills, a private country club in the Castle Hills master-planned community. The tournament will feature a morning and afternoon four-person scramble in addition to great golfer gifts, food trucks, hole vendors and a post-tournament reception featuring dinner, drinks and a live auction. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
Last year, participants in the Bright Realty Golf Classic raised more than $200,000 to benefit the children of Big Brothers Big Sisters, added Bright. May 1 will be a great day at The Lakes. Hope to see you on the golf course!
