2007 Speaker's Golf Tournament Sets 5-Year Fundraising Record
Date:9/21/2007

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- A sellout crowd will honor Texas House Speaker Tom Craddick and his wife, Nadine, Monday at the 5th Annual Speaker's Golf Tournament, an event that sold out faster and well exceeded the amount of money raised by last year's tournament, with dozens of participants and sponsors still on its waiting list.

"For the past five years since the Craddicks first lent their names to this important event, proceeds from the tournament have snowballed," said Craig Jeffery, the Caring for Children Foundation of Texas Executive Director.

The annual proceeds generated by the Speaker's Golf Tournament have accelerated in the five years it has honored the Craddicks, with proceeds burgeoning from approximately $178,000 in 2003 to more than $500,000 this year. Now in its fifth year honoring Tom and Nadine Craddick, funds raised by the Speaker's Tournament has allowed the Caring for Children Foundation to expand its Care Van fleet, and provide immunization services to more than 65,000 uninsured children in Texas.

One in every four Texas children does not receive timely immunizations. The Caring for Children Foundation of Texas' Care Van Program was launched in 1997 to improve those statistics, with the goal of providing free or low-cost immunizations to medically uninsured or underserved children. Using a fleet of ten specially customized mobile immunization vans, the Care Van Program conducts immunization clinics at schools, restaurants, churches, shopping centers, public housing, community centers and other venues throughout Texas. The Care Van program is the primary outreach of the Caring for Children Foundation, whose administrative costs are covered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas. Since the program's launch in 1997 to the present, more than
