This annual charity event is held at Bob Moore’s Sports Center located at 6113 Colleyville Blvd.   Last year’s “Sight First” Charity Hole In One Golf Shoot-out was a huge success due to the great weather bringing out over 300 avid golfers for our 3 day event. We had one hole-in-one in our preliminaries and 9 finalists trying to win the Grand Prize. We received very positive feedback from our contestants as to their enjoyment of the fun, friendliness and organization of our event.

 

September 20th – Noon – 7pm

September 21st – 10am – 7pm

September 22nd – Noon – 5pm –  9 Qualifiers Shootout 6 pm

We raised over 10,000 dollars for the charities we support.

These funds were dispersed to important organizations including the following:

• Texas Lions Camp, Provides Free Summer Camp for Children with Physical Disabilities and Diabetes
• Leader Dogs
• College Scholarships for High School Seniors
• Organ and Eye Bank
• Boy Scouts
• Eye Glass Recycling Center

As a Sponsor you can play a huge part in making a difference to the adults and children, that our sight related charities support. Your support also helps many families in our community that are in need. We at the Colleyville Lions Club thank you for the help you have given the community and us.
