8th Annual Swing with Santa Golf Tournament

| January 2, 2022 | 0 Comments

St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center (SMSC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating and empowering individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to realize their full potential, held its 8th Annual “Swing with Santa” Golf Tournament in memory of Don Parent this past year. This year’s event successfully raised over $27,000. 

Golfers joined SMSC at the Singing Hills Golf Resort Pine Glen 3-Par Executive Course at Sycuan where they enjoyed a day full of fun, opportunity drawings, games, a golf ball drop, food and drinks, and a visit from Santa.  

The “Swing with Santa” Golf Tournament is held annually to help support SMSC’s annual Student Appreciation Holiday Celebration. All funds raised from the golf tournament will go towards providing each SMSC student with a $20 gift card at the celebration later in the year. The student celebration will also feature holiday music, a festive ugly sweater contest, and a visit from Santa for the students to enjoy. 

“Thank you to our sponsors and supporters who helped make our annual Swing with Santa tournament a big success,” said Debra Emerson, CEO at St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center. “We are so thankful for the community coming together to help provide each of our more than 400 students with a special holiday present.”
