Mama’s House has announced plans for its First Annual Charity Golf Classic & “Rat Pack” Dinner Show on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at Indian Wells Country Club in Indian Wells, California. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary milestone, Mama’s House offers a safe, supportive, loving, and nurturing residential environment for women in crises, whether pregnant or with an infant, who are vulnerable with no place to go and no means of support. Mama’s House offers an extensive one-of-a-kind program of hope, as these residents face a brighter future.
The Golf Tournament and Dinner Show will be held at Indian Wells Country Club, home of the original Bob Hope Classic, on its renowned Cove Course, a par-72 classic designed by the Club’s Founder Eddie Susalia and Ted Robinson Sr. “My favorite thing about the Cove Course is the view and the play ability for all levels of golfer,” stated Paul Cox, PGA, Director of Golf at Indian Wells Country Club. “I love the view of the mountains from the front nine, and I love the back nine stroll into the mountains. The Cove Course is just a pleasure to play, and it is such fun to take someone out there for the first time and watch the reaction to the beautiful backdrop.”
This exciting inaugural event, which will celebrate Mama’s House’s first decade, is being Co-chaired by Dr. Vincent Nola, Mama’s House Board Member, Jeroen Sparreboom and Yin Tchen. The “Rat Pack” Dinner Show, underwritten by IFS Inforsure, will transport guests back in time to enjoy the nostalgic music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, J.
“We are so fortunate to have Dr. Nola, Jeroen and Yin spearheading this exciting inaugural event,” stated Jan Lupia, Founder & Executive Director of Mama’s House. “This event will raise much-needed funds for the Mama’s House mission, as well as, for our expansion plans which are well underway, to build the new Anne Silverstein Campus of Mama’s House.”
“My wife and I are both immigrants,” stated Jeroen Sparreboom. “Yin is from Vietnam and I am from Holland, and we have always wanted to give back for all the opportunities afforded us here in America. One of the ideas we came up with was to organize a Charity Golf Tournament and Dinner Show event, complete with dancing. We started chatting with our friend and neighbor Dr. Vincent Nola, and he shared with us the important mission of Mama’s House. The next day we met with Jan Lupia, and we knew this was the Charity we wanted to put our efforts behind, because of their contribution to life and faith in our community. Each child saved by Mama’s House is a part of the future of our beloved country.”
