Christmas Child Tournament 2015
Pardue Children in Need Fund
With its noble mission statement of "Providing Joy to Kids with Little Joy
in Their Lives," the Pardue Children in Need Fund, in association with The
Waccamaw Community Foundation, has brightened the lives of hundreds of
young people in The Grand Strand of South Carolina and Augusta, Georgia.
Through numerous fundraising events including its annual Christmas Child
Golf Tournament and its January Charity Concert Event, all proceeds
benefit children (180) housed at Lighthouse Care Center of Conway,
Lighthouse Care Centers of Augusta, Georgia and Sea Coast Academy in
Surfside Beach, SC, Waccamaw Youth Center, Conway, Lancaster Children's
Home, and Connie Maxwell Girls Home in Florence. As the foundation
continues to grow its goal is to one day bring joy to kids in all eight
Lighthouse facilities in South Carolina as well.
Funds raised provide activities including a trip to Carowinds Amusement
Park, Bowling, State Fair Tickets, Football Tickets to Coastal Carolina
Football, Myrtle Beach Amusement Park Monthly visit during the summer,
monthly visits to a local movie theater, and through the generous help of
the great people at Alabama Theatre, an annual Christmas Show at the
acclaimed venue. Additionally, children are presented with a new pair of
sneakers, of their own choosing, as a Christmas gift.
"The Facilities do amazing work with children helping them get on the
right path to succeed in life. We're honored to assist them in bringing
joy and hope to so many young people," says Claude Pardue.
For 60 years, the close family harmonies of Larry, Rudy and Steve Gatlin, better known as Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, have given the trio a signature sound that led to country classics like "All The Gold In California" and "Houston (Means I'm One Day Closer To You)." The brothers won a GRAMMY® for their 1976 breakthrough hit, "Broken Lady," and reached #1 with "I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love" soon after. Along with five career nominations for the ACM Vocal Group, the Gatlin Brothers picked up three 1979 trophies - Single of the Year ("All The Gold In California"), Album of the Year (Straight Ahead) and Male Vocalist of the Year for Larry Gatlin. Larry Gatlin has written songs that were later recorded by Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and more. In 2015, the Gatlin Brothers are celebrating 60 years as a singing trio.
Thanks to all who played in the 2014 Tournament. We raised over $12,000 as the rainy weather impacted our play this year. This brings our total raised since our first tournament in 2004 to $152,000. We were able to impact the lives of over 222 children in 2014.
