Irving, TX (PressExposure) April 05, 2013 -- Big Brothers Big Sisters wants all of North Texas to 'play hooky' on Monday, May 6 at the Lakes at Castle Hills Golf Club in Lewisville to have some fun and make a big difference in the lives of local children. Between a top-rated golf tournament, a fashion & trunk show, and an evening with dining, dancing and auctions, there will be something for everyone.
Kicking off the day's festivities is the 46th Annual Bright Realty Golf Classic and Bright Realty Corporate Championship presented by American Airlines Center. Consistently rated as one of the Top 10 charity golf events in Dallas-Fort Worth by the Dallas Business Journal, the tournament will offer options for both the recreation and competitive player. The morning Championship will be a stroke play two-man best ball event that is strictly based on U.S.G.A rules. Prizes will be awarded for the low team score and low individual score. The long-standing Classic event will remain as a second option for those who enjoy a traditional shotgun scramble. This event is for all skill levels with mulligans and fun games.
Championship golfers will tee-off Monday, May 6, for an 8 a.m. start and Classic golfers will have a 2 p.m. shotgun start. Both tournaments will be held at The Lakes at Castle Hills in Lewisville. To register and for more information, visit http://www.bbbstx.org/GOLF or call 817.905.GOLF.
For North Texans interested in things other than playing golf, Big Brothers Big Sisters invites them to our Fashion & Trunk Show from 4:30-6:30. Also at The Lakes at Castle Hills, guests will shop various boutiques all while sipping on signature cocktails. Everyone will also enjoy a private fashion show and receive the latest scoop on what trends are hot this summer. The $45 ticket price includes cocktails, door prizes and admission into the evening's 'Party Under the Stars.'
Tournament participants and Trunk Show guests receive complementary admission into 'Party Under the Stars'. To purchase Trunk Show / Party tickets, visit bbbstx.org/party.
Immediately after the tournaments and fashion show, everyone is invited to enjoy an evening of gourmet food and drinks poolside, as well as music by DJ Lucy Wrubel, and a silent and live auction.
All proceeds from the day's events will directly benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. In 2012, the event raised in excess of $200,000 for the children of North Texas, helping to take 400 children off the waiting list and into caring mentor relationships.
