Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley has granted the wishes of more than 2,200 children since 1986. There are an average of 160 wishes in progress at any given time for the chapter, and each wish generally costs between $7,500 and $10,000. That’s why taking part in the Swing For Wishes Golf and Tennis Tournament at Brynwood Country Club in Armonk, N.Y., is so crucial. But most importantly: it’s fun!

Swing For Wishes is Monday, Sept. 8, and promises to be a great event. Festivities on the golf course start at noon with registration and lunch with golf starting at 1 p.m. The tennis clinic and competition starts at 3 p.m. Dinner for both golfers and tennis players is at 6 p.m.

There are several sponsorship opportunities for both golf and tennis. Golf sponsorships are:

  • Eagle ($3,000)
  • Birdie ($2,000)
  • Par 3 ($1,000)
  • Tee Sponsor ($250)

The cost to play as a single golfer is $250 and a foursome is $1,000, and includes lunch, golf, dinner and a Make-A-Wish windbreaker for each participant.

Tennis sponsorships include:

  • Grand Slam ($2,000)
  • Ace ($1,000)
  • Court Sponsor ($250)

You can attend the dinner only for $100. The cost to play tennis is $150 per player, and includes the event and dinner. Go to the event’s website to become a sponsor or reserve your spot in either event today! For more information, please contact Tara Thorne at
