During the past three years, Cricket Communications, Inc., a San Diego-based leading provider of unlimited wireless services, has raised more than $1 million for Rady Children's through the Cricket Charity golf tournament. The funds raised from this tournament benefit the H.O.P.E.S fund in the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood disorders that provides financial assistance to families who cannot afford expenses not covered by insurance, from wigs to food vouchers to a space heater for a home without heat. Additionally, the tournament supports Rady Children's Kawasaki, Pulmonary, Developmental Services, Orthopedics and Cranial facial programs. This fundraiser is an inspiring example of how a community partner can make a profound difference in the lives of children and families.
Cricket launched the charity event in 2006, when an employee's family member was struck with cancer. The tournament features a full day of festivities, that has included a helicopter ball-drop raffle, foursome golf scramble, silent auction, Callaway Golf Store and awards presentation.
We thank our corporate partner for their positive impact on children and families at Rady Children's Hospital.
