The tournament team from Nationwide Boiler began raising funds in January for this year’s event, and accepted donations in the form of hole, table, water bottle and golf ball sponsorships, as well as monetary donations. The company also organized multiple raffles, auctions, and other activities throughout the tournament to raise additional funds. The company also announced the dates for its 40th annual tournament, scheduled for May 6-7, 2020 in Pebble Beach, California.
One of the largest chapters nationwide, Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area is a non- profit organization founded in 1984. In its first year of operation, a total of 27 wishes were granted to fulfill the dreams of children who have been diagnosed with critical illnesses. To date, Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area has granted more than 8,600 wishes.
