Local “Play Yellow” golf tournaments raise a combined $9028 for CMN at UC Davis

When it comes to playing golf these days, more people are playing yellow! And thanks to a pair of golf tournaments in support of Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals, UC Davis Children’s Hospital received a donation of $9028.

Led by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, the PGA TOUR and CMN, “Play Yellow for Children’s Hospitals” strives to bring the golf world together to help kids treated at local children’s hospitals like UC Davis. In support of the program, Michael Deauville organized a PlayYellow event in November to honor healthcare heroes like his fiancee, UC Davis Health nurse, Kayla Prior, and pediatric patients like his sister who spent a lot of time in children’s hospitals growing up.

Deauville convinced his friend, Neil Dhanowa, to dedicate his own year-end tourney to CMN/Play Yellow. That tourney raised $600 and spurred two additional individual gifts of $1,878, bringing the total of the two tournaments to $9028.

“We are so grateful to Michael and Kayla for the successful (no rain!) tournament in November,” said Tony Hazarian, executive director of development for UC Davis Medical Center. “And with the generous support of Neil and the indidvidual donors, we can do even more for our pediatric patients. So excited Play Yellow has been so scucessful and can’t wait to see what this program yields in the future.”
