June 12, 2012 - PRLog -- KidSwing, celebrating its 10th anniversary this summer, is a nine-hole, best-ball scramble for children ages 7 to 18 at all levels of golfing ability. All KidSwing proceeds will go toward the renovation of Allan Shivers Park, a play area for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) patients, which is located on the grounds of the hospital. TSRHC prosthetics patient Mabeth Diaz, age 13 of Dallas, spoke at the awards ceremony about his experience at the hospital. His inspirational words are meant to remind the participants of why they are raising funds for TSRHC.

The KidSwing Golf Tournament took place on Monday June 11, 2012 at Brookhaven Country Club in Dallas, Texas.

More than 200 kids, ages 7 to 18, participated in the tournament along with hundreds of volunteers, player families and event sponsors. An Ambit Energy representative spoke at the program. Participants received awards, including longest drive and closet to pin, during the awards program,

About KidSwing:
KidSwing is a nine-hole, best-ball scramble for players ages 7 to 18 at all levels of golfing ability. The original KidSwing golf tournament was founded in 2003 by former Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) patient Ben Sater of Plano and his mother, Kim Sater. Ben founded KidSwing as a way to give back to TSRHC for the care he received. KidSwing is all about kids helping kids, and to date, KidSwing golf tournaments have raised more than $1.2 million for TSRHC. Currently, three KidSwing tournaments are played in the Dallas-Fort Worth area each year.
