KidSwing – Former patient Ben Sater received treatment, including surgery, for a condition called trigger finger at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. When he discovered that patients receive treatment regardless of their ability to pay, he decided to use his love for golf to give back to the hospital by creating KidSwing, a 9-hole, best-ball scramble for players ages 7 to 18 of all levels of golf ability.
SolJazz Festival – Entertain your family with music, comedy shows, ticket contests, the annual “Walk for Diabetes Prevention” and more.
