On the beautiful morning of June 17, 2013 at Westfields Golf Club, Everybody Wins! DC successfully hosted the 17th Annual Scramble Golf Tournament and, with 11 corporate sponsors, raised more than $30,000 to support our signature children’s mentoring and literacy programs.

 

Special contests, like hole-in-one and longest drive, were held around the course with prizes including two round-trip air tickets and Callaway X Hot Irons to add excitement.  After spending a few hours on the gorgeous course, participants returned to a delicious buffet, fun awards ceremony, and raffle with prizes such as a certificate for a round of golf for four at Snowshoe Mountain’s Raven Golf Club and Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic season tickets for two.

DC is very thankful: General Dynamics, JBG Companies, Oasis Foundation, Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC, CTIA – The Wireless Association, Sidley Austin LLP, Venable LLP, Powers Pyles Sutter & Verville PC, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, Towers Watson, Venn Strategies, LLC.

"Seeing her become more confident and her love of reading increase has been such a joy to watch."
"It's mostly fun to read and watch her become such a confident reader and learn to love reading as much as I do. She is one of my best friends."
"When an adult helps a child, it tells that child how special they are. We send a message to the child- you are important to me- that is powerful and undeniable."
"It's a fantastic program, and I think the mentors get as much, if not more, than the student. You meet wonderful kids and have lots of fun."
"When I read, I learn and grow-- you know, like Jack and the Beanstalk kind of growing and that's really big!"
