The Markie Foundation 18th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

July 14, 2017

Another successful fundraiser nets more than $15,000 for children’s hospice and George Mark Children’s House

On Friday, July 14, 2017, The Markie Foundation hosted its 18th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Callippe Preserve Golf Course in Pleasanton, California, raising more than $15,000 on the day to support children’s hospice programs and services. Approximately 140 golfers and dinner guests participated in the event, which continues to be the organization’s primary fundraiser.

Foundation Disburses $15,000 to George Mark Children’s House
During the dinner banquet, The Markie Foundation announced it would be donating $12,500 to its long-time beneficiary George Mark Children’s House (GMCH). With the incremental support and success of this year’s event, however, The Markie Foundation will be increasing its 2017 contribution to GMCH to $15,000.

Specifically, the donation will support GMCH’s Fund-a-Bed Campaign to ensure children and families continue to receive the specialized care and treatment needed, regardless of their ability to pay or amount of insurance reimbursement.
