On Friday April 5, the Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation hosted its 6th Annual Sam Han Classic. The charity golf tournament was established in honor of our late founder Sang Man “Sam” Han whose vision and values continue to drive our work to save children all over the world.
65 golfers gathered at Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena, CA to play for our cause. The day started with a BBQ where each player was treated to a meal, eye the competition and start hyping their game. Before the tournament kicked into action, Director of Operations Zachary Lopez and Executive Director Arthur Han addressed the group and spoke about the work HSICF does and the lives that are changed. They also announced the newest program – Vietnam that will officially start at the end of this month when approximately 150,000 meals will be shipped to 12 schools feeding nearly 1,800 children.
At 1pm the golfers were sent off in a shotgun format across the course. On the course they were automatically entered into the various on-course games including a longest drive competition, closest to the pin and multiple hole in one holes with the grand prize of $10,000. Unfortunately, the ace eluded the field again this year but good times were had by all.
When all was said and done Brian “Bubba” Botsford, Kevin Botsford, Danny Reaume and Jonathon Hotchkin decimated the field with a team score of -16. While they ran away with the tournament’s top prize – all teams thoroughly enjoyed a great day of golf for an amazing cause.
The tournament raised over $13,000 for our various programs. We want to take a minute to thank the sponsors, the participants, volunteers and everyone else who worked diligently to ensure this tournament was not only fun but also successful. We hope to see you again next year!
