The Markie Foundation 19th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

July 13, 2018

Annual event results in record-setting $20,000+ for children’s hospice; additional disbursement made to George Mark Children’s House.

On Friday, July 13, 2018, The Markie Foundation hosted its 19th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Callippe Preserve Golf Course in Pleasanton, California, raising more than $20,000 on the day to support children’s hospice programs and services — a record amount for the event. Approximately 160 golfers and dinner guests participated in the event, which continues to be one of the organization’s primary fundraisers.

Foundation Disburses Another $20,000 to George Mark Children’s House
During the dinner banquet, The Markie Foundation announced its 2018 donation of $20,000 to long-time beneficiary George Mark Children’s House (GMCH). What’s more, these funds are being matched by an anonymous GMCH donor, making it a $40,000 contribution. The donation will support GMCH’s ongoing operations to ensure terminally ill children and their families continue to receive the specialized care and treatment needed, regardless of their ability to pay or amount of insurance reimbursement.

Reggie and Kristalle Cooks, whose son Jabari was cared for at GMCH during his terminal illness, were on hand to represent the organization. In a moving testimonial, Reggie shared his family’s story and gratitude for the support they received from GMCH and other organizations that support children’s hospice, including The Markie Foundation.

Since its inception, The Markie Foundation has raised nearly $400,000 to support children’s hospice. View our many beneficiaries. With proceeds from this year’s event and many generous direct donations throughout the year, The Markie Foundation is in position to disburse additional funds to other worthy organizations this year and beyond. Stay tuned!

Thanks again to all our sponsors, donors, participants, and volunteers for your continued support. We couldn’t do it without you!
