7th Annual Bella’s Angels 100 Hole Marathon
When: Monday, May 11, 2020
Where: Old Marsh Golf Club, 7500 Old Marsh Road, Palm Beach Gardens
Objective: Each golfer commits to raising funds (a minimum of $3,000) through donations and pledges. The day of the event, the golfer (along with a partner) will play 100 holes of golf. They alternate shots and will have a volunteer caddy (in a cart) driving the golfers and transporting their clubs from hole to hole. The caddy will assist in providing their appropriate club, distance location of the ball, and keeping our golfers hydrated and fed. They play an important role in this process. Our approximately 20 golfers and volunteers start the day with a breakfast and then get on the course in the morning and end anywhere from 2-4 pm. Volunteers will distribute lunch on the course and we finish the day with a celebratory dinner including golfers, spouses, volunteers, our Buddy families and BA board members at a local restaurant.
To date, Bella’s Angels has raised over $475,000 in the six years of this unique fundraiser. Our fundraising goal is to raise $35,000 in 2020. Though it is a tough day, it is so rewarding to know that you are walking in the shoes of our Buddies and helping to provide financial support.
About Bella’s Angels: Bella’s Angels is a grassroots 501(c)3 organization founded in 2005 originally in an effort to help Bella Cavallo, who had mounting medical expenses when diagnosed with C.H.A.R.G.E. Syndrome. Today, our mission is to financially assist local children with life-long physical disabilities, beyond what insurance covers. Bella’s Angels seeks to fill the gap for families who have private insurance and do not qualify for federal funding or may not have the means to financially care for their child’s expenses. We support families who have children in our local area ranging in ages from 0 til 18 years old. To date, we have assisted twenty-five families with their child’s mounting medical expenses by providing financial support for medical related travel, equipment, therapy, medical co-pays and other expenses related to their disabilities. For the first six years, Bella’s Angels mirrored their event after the Hundred Hole Hike. With a new format in 2020, the goal is to recruit up to 20 golfers with two person teams. Teams could even be created by forming two members to complete 50 holes and two additional members to complete the final 50 holes of golf.
