A special golf tournament on May 22 hosted by Chili's Southern California helped raise funds for Kinship Center and Canyon Acres programs serving children in Orange County.

The 25th Annual "Hook 'n Slice" Golf Tournament held at Coyote Hills Golf Course in Fullerton drew a full house of 144 golfers plus friends to enjoy a day that included a hole-in-one contest with a lucky winner of $10,000!

A highlight of the event was the first-ever 'Helicopter Golf Ball Drop' in which three winners whose balls dropped closest to the pin each received a cash prize of $1,000.

"Chili's has once again come through for our local children who are in need," said Maxon. "Their ongoing support of Canyon Acres and Kinship Center programs was evident at this event filled with excitement, fun and charity! This kind of support from our local community allows us to further our mission of finding permanent families for every child with past trauma who needs one. We can't thank Chili's Southern California enough for all the hard work that went into planning such a spectacular event, and we are honored to once again be the recipients of the proceeds that will help us serve the most vulnerable children in Orange County."
