Thanks to everyone who attended and supported the 49th Annual Bright Realty Golf Classic benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS). The event on Monday, May 2, at The Lakes at Castle Hills raised $198,000 to match at-risk youth of North Texas with caring role models who will forever encourage them to reach their true potential.
We are proud to be a long-time supporter of BBBS, serving as title sponsor for seven consecutive years, and could not have enjoyed this kind of fundraising success without the participating golfers and sponsors, said Chris Bright, Bright Realty CEO.
This years event had a great turnout despite an unseasonably cold day with almost 200 golfers participating and supporting a great cause. Thirteen teams teed off in the morning and 34 teams played in the afternoon.
The event has long been popular in the DFW area, ranking 18th on the 2015 list of highest grossing Charity Golf Tournaments in DFW by the Dallas Business Journal. The event also gave local golfers an opportunity to experience The Lakes a Castle Hills, a private country club recently ranked 5th on Avid Golfers Best Country Club First Class list.
The funds raised in this tournament will change young peoples lives all across North Texas, added Bright.
