Golf tournament to raise funds for children

By From page A10 | April 23, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A September golf tournament will help keep Solano County children insured.

The Solano County Coalition for Better Health announced Monday that will have its eighth annual Classic for Kids Golf Tournament and Dinner on Sept. 26. The location will be the Eagle Vines Golf Club in Napa County.

Organizers call the tournament the cornerstone to raising money for the Solano Kids Insurance Program, or SKIP. The event has raised more than $1.5 million since 2007 to provide health insurance coverage to Solano County children who otherwise would not have coverage. It costs $1,250 per child annually to provide health insurance, a coalition press release said.

“These funds will help ensure children in our local community that are most in need of assistance are linked to critical health care,” coalition Executive Director Joanie Erickson said in the press release.

The Solano County Board of Supervisors has approved a dollar-per-dollar match on funds up to $125,000, the press release said.

Call 330-8441 for details on the tournament and sponsorships.

    The location will be the Eagle Vines Golf Club in Napa County. ^^ We have several wonderful courses in Solano County, why not host the tournament at Paradise Valley, Rancho Solano or Hiddenbrooke...or even Blue Rock Springs, Green Tree or Mare Island. Keep it in Solano County!
