In anticipation of the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play tournament, Austin Country Club hosted a media day and Riverboat Charity Challenge featuring reigning Masters Champion Sergio Garcia and golf legend Ben Crenshaw. Five junior golfers along with the two Masters Champions participated in a closest-to-the-pin competition from a riverboat in Lake Austin to the 13th green. World Golf Hall of Famer and Austin Country Club member Tom Kite was also in attendance. HHH was proud to have 14-year old local junior golfer Franco Melhado representing the Home. Last year Franco won 5 Southern Texas PGA Tournaments and finished 3rd in the Southern Texas PGA Tour Championship.
Everyone was a winner Thursday as WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play announced that each of the five benefiting charities, including HHH would each take home $1,000. Thank you to Dell Technologies Match Play for your generous support of Helping Hand Home! With the latest contribution of $5,000 in total, the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play has raised over $2.1 million in total since moving to Austin in 2016.
