SOLANA BEACH — Golfers and sponsors are being sought for the inaugural Do It Fore the Kids Foundation charity golf tournament, scheduled for March 7 at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club.
The event, which will benefit Rady Children’s Hospital, is being coordinated by 26-year-old Dale Houts, a Cardiff-by-the-Sea resident and graduate of San Dieguito Academy High School.
Houts, who said he practically grew up at the Solana Beach golf club, began putting the tournament together after playing in a charity golf tournament last summer.
“I had so much fun playing the game I love and helping a good cause,” he said. “I wanted to do something good for the community.”
The cost for a foursome is $550 and includes lunch, dinner, a gift bag and the contributor’s name on the scorecard.
Hole sponsorships are $1,000 and include a 10-by-10 tent for marketing, a sign on the tee box, an item for the gift bag, signage in the clubhouse for the dinner and the company logo on the Facebook event page and flier.
A combination hole sponsorship and foursome is available for $1,250. Donations are also being sought for a raffle and silent auction.
Houts said he is trying to create a relaxed environment for golfers. The event will include contests such as longest drive and closest to the pin.

“I’m just trying to do something really cool,” he said.
