This year marks the 10th year for the fund-raiser that has raised an average of $200,000 per year. In nine years, 1.6 million dollars have been raised in support of health care for needy kids and families.
The Care-a-Van serves Kingsland, Granite Shoals, Marble Falls, Bertram and Burnet. The van goes to elementary schools in each of the communities, providing a wide range of needs.
The tournament field can hold 30 teams and 240 players in a double shotgun start. The tee times are 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Saturday Aug. 3. A tailgate party is also scheduled for Aug. 2 at the Galloway Hammond Recreation Center in Burnet.
"We have various sponsorships,’’ said Becky Fox said, director of development for Seton Highland Lakes Hospital. Individual players can enter for $125 with a foursome set at $500. The tailgate party tables are $320 for eight people. The various sponsorships range from $1,000 to $10,000.
The tournament was started by Bellard and Dykes in 2003 to support better health care for the kids of the Highland Lakes.
Bellard passed away in 2011, but the tournament still carries his name and Dykes."It is really something that has helped to have their names associated with this tournament,’’ Fox said. "Both of them are great men.’’
