The Ron Diaz Christmas Classic Golf Tournament and
All-Sport Resort Package at Saddlebrook
Benefiting Children's Cancer Center
... December 12 - 16, 2013

Play and Stay ... and Play Some More ....

The fun kicks off during celebrated 620 WDAE, The Sports Animal, radio personality's Ron Diaz Christmas Classic! It is traditionally "A beautiful day of golf and shenanigans to benefit Children's Cancer Center." The goal champions this non-profit organization whose "mission is to provide children and families with the educational, emotional, and financial relief necessary to cope with the illness which threatens." The program supports all members of the family every step of the journey, from diagnosis and treatment to the ultimate aim of survivorship.

Saddlebrook is honored to host the Ron Diaz Christmas Classic on December 13, 2013. Let the fun begin! Golfers will tee off on one of the Arnold Palmer signature championship courses. Bountiful food, drinks, and booties of sponsors' gifts and prizes keep spirits bright all the way through the Awards Ceremony Bash.

The Tournament Entry Fee and Event Inclusions are $150 per person, or $600 per foursome team. Registration opens November 1, 2013. Please contact 620 WDAE: 813.832.1477 or CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION FORM
