It started off with a sunny day filled with golf, healthy competition and family fun and finished with a series of auctions, fundraisers and good times all to benefit children with Heart Disease. Camp del Corazon is a non-profit organization that provides a free of charge summer camp for children with Heart Disease. All proceeds and donations are spent on the camp and its programming and it is staffed entirely by volunteers.
In honor of Daviana Hogan, her mother, Janene, put together the Davi Golf Classic held at Journey golf course at Pechanga in Temecula, California. For the last 16 years, Camp del Corazon has received generous support from the Davi Golf Classic contributors that have donated to the tournament, silent auction and live auction.
During the golf tournament, prizes are awarded for Longest Drive and any lucky individual to snag a hole-in-one will be driving home in a new car! (Someone did this in the 2015 tournament!) After a day of golfing, supporters gather inside to partake in some delicious food and drinks and to bid on the silent and live auction pieces.
The auction pieces range from a personalized Global Angel Wings Project by artist, Colette Miller to Jimmy Choo’s to a handcrafted quilt by actual campers. There were also campers handing out raffle tickets for a various selection of prizes and a Camp Counselor raffling off a beautiful 4.35 moonstone, rose gold necklace.
The night was filled with numerous donations, competitive auction bidding and an all-out good time. A couple of the campers gathered on stage and spoke of their experience with camp and how it has transformed their lives. Many campers feeling like an outcast, unsure of their place until Camp del Corazon was introduced into their lives. A handful of Camp Counselors spoke as well, thankful for the opportunity to be involved with such a great and important cause.
