For the second year in a row, Paradise Valley Estates is sponsoring the Fisher House Golf Tournament. This year the tournament will be held on Friday, June 26th at the Paradise Valley Golf Course in Fairfield, California. The tournament benefits the Travis Air Force Base Fisher House. The Fisher House is one of 54 “homes away from home” built on military bases with medical centers. Fisher House was the inspiration of the late philanthropists Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher. They generously created a not-for-profit foundation to help military families in need. Families can stay at Fisher House without charge while their loved one is hospitalized and receiving treatment. The concept is similar to the Ronald McDonald houses.
Last year’s tournament raised more than $11,000 for Fisher House. The goal this year is to raise $20,000. The tournament will be organized in a scramble format. The $100 entry fee includes a light lunch at 11 a.m., free range balls, golf, and an awards dinner. Paradise Valley has sponsors who support the expense of the event so all the entry fee dollars can go directly to Fisher House.
The organizers look forward to having a full slate of golfers, including several foursomes from PVE itself. There is a $40,000 hole-in-one contest with the winner sharing the prize with Fisher House ($20,000 each). After golf there is a blind auction and a raffle for many nice prizes. The entire event is being planned by the PVE Resident Marketing Committee.
