This charity event, set for Monday, June 17, 2024, offers players a chance to enjoy 18 holes of golf while supporting The Crayon Initiative’s mission to bring joy to children in pediatric hospitals.

Every shot you hit contributes to putting a new pack of recycled crayons into the hands of children through therapeutic art programs.

Whether you’re an avid golfer or just looking to support a good cause, your participation makes a difference. Sign up today, and remember, all proceeds benefit the creative healing of children in need.

The Crayon Initiative was born one night when Bryan Ware and his family went out for dinner. While his boys sat coloring on the menu, Bryan couldn’t help but wonder where restaurant crayons end up, when all the people go home.

Turns out, it’s the landfill—making a big waxy mess that never biodegrades. Why, Bryan thought, couldn’t they be re-purposed to create more joy in the world? He took the crayons home and got busy—figuring out the art of collecting and sorting old crayons, melting them down, and remanufacturing them in a bright, clean, paper-free form.

Consulting an occupational therapist, he even gave his new crayons a unique design—large and three-sided, not round—so they’re easy for kids to grip and can’t roll off hospital trays.

Finally, he crafted a network for sending free crayons to kids in hospitals all over the country.
