From soccer to piano lessons, to ballet or art class, there are so many extracurricular options for children here in the valley. But for many families the options don’t matter because they can’t afford all the extras that go along with those activities like cleats, music books, ballet shoes and art supplies. That’s why Rosie Welmas started Rosie’s Kids, a nonprofit organization that helps families afford to enroll their children in the activities they love.

On Monday, May 20th Eagle Falls Golf Course will host the 3rd annual Rosie’s Kids charity golf tournament in order to raise money for the non-profit cause. Entry is $75 per golfer and includes 18-holes of championship golf, lunch, cart with GPS, use of the driving range and practice green, and an ice-filled cooler with water. To sign up or for more information, call (760) 485-4483 or email Rosie Welmas at rndwelmas@aol.com.  Rosie Welmas, founder of Rosie’s Kids, says the organization was started because of the need she saw first hand while coaching a group of children’s cheerleading squads and the memory of a third grade teacher who helped her family afford extracurricular activities. The organization helps offset the high cost of supplies and helps children to become well-rounded individuals.

Eagle Falls Golf Course is part of Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. The par 72 course is 6,715 yards and was voted a best new course by  Golfweek magazine.
