Drive Against Hunger Golf Tournament to Benefit Galilee Center March 23rd

The Cabazon Band Of Mission Indians welcomes golfers and volunteers to participate in the 7th Annual Drive Against Hunger Golf Tournament on March 23, 2018 – benefiting the Galilee Center in their efforts to help feed neighbors in need throughout the East Coachella Valley.

The entry fee is $150 per golfer, and includes golf on the beautiful Eagle Falls Golf Course in Indio, a golf cart, range balls, continental breakfast and an after-tournament awards banquet at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

The Galilee Center, located in Mecca, provides assistance to over 18,000 families through food, clothing, financial aid and much-needed facilities.

The face of hunger is increasingly becoming the growing class of “working poor” – neighbors living on fixed incomes, struggling to pay bills or rent, with limited resources. They rely on additional community and public support for survival. Many are families with young children, the elderly, or are homebound.

Since 2012, the Drive Against Hunger Golf Tournament has donated over $157,000 to various organizations. This year’s goal is to raise more than $31,000 to aid the Galilee Center in its mission. The tournament is a project of a group of resident volunteers from Sun City Shadow Hills, and is sponsored by The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians and Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.
