Further, the tournament boasted a charity helicopter ball drop where one lucky winner was selected. The helicopter hovered at 100 feet while 600 golf balls rained down on the eighteenth hole. The ball closest to the hole won. The tournament raised $102,000.00, which will benefit the True Sky Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network. We are so thankful for the incredible support we received from the FAA and our friends at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center! Sean Cahill, President/CEO True Sky Credit Union states, “True Sky is so honored to partner with our FAA family to raise money for the True Sky Foundation. This golf tournament resulted in $50,000 being presented to Children’s Hospital Foundation with our Miracle Child.” He continues, “The remainder of the funds raised will go toward college scholarships and grants to benefit our community. We are excited to continue events like this in 2022!”

General Pediatrics

The event featured Jase Lane, an energetic and happy boy who loves playing outside and being a big brother to his sister, Lucy! Jace was recently injured, and is currently cared for by Dr. Casey Hester, CHF Presbyterian Health Foundation Chair in Education. Dr. Hester is the program director for the pediatric residency program at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. She also sees general pediatric patients like Jace. Our Children’s Hospital has a variety of specialists for Oklahoma kids, but it is also important to remember the dedicated general pediatricians who treat kids like Jace when they need tubes in their ears, break their ankle, get the flu, or have other normal ailments. Jace most recently visited the Children’s Hospital when he jumped off from his playground at home and hurt his ankle. Jace is now in a walking cast but that is not slowing him down, and thanks to the great care by Dr. Hester, Jace is doing great and will be back on the playground soon.
