SAN DIEGO–Last month, the Kylie Rowand Foundation held its 4th annual Prayers for Kylie Golf Tournament at the Steel Canyon Golf Club and raised more than $60,000.

Presented by the Wild and Free Project, the event brought together 130 guests to honor the two-year-old Alpine toddler who lost her battle to neuroblastoma in 2015, and raise funds for childhood cancer research.

“It was an amazing turnout. We are so grateful to everyone who participated in the golf tournament, joined us for dinner, purchased a ball drop ticket or even made a contribution from afar,” shared Kylie’s mom, Bree Rowand. “It is important to know that we are making a difference. Every dollar helped us reach our goal!”

Earlier this month, members from the foundation flew to New York City to present Dr. Stephen Roberts at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with a $50,000 check.

“The funds provided are specific to Kylie’s research,” continued Rowand. “When Kylie passed, the center harvested Kylie’s cells, blood and marrow for research, and they’re currently working to find a cure. This is our biggest fundraising event of the year. Kylie would be so proud of all the people coming together to help save thousands of children’s lives.”

The Kylie Rowand Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization assisting in funding clinical research trials that are proving to be instrumental in the fight against childhood cancer. Aside from donating to research, the organization also helps families with its “Love Like Kylie” and “Kylie Kare” initiatives. The programs provide gift baskets to children battling cancer and assist families during the financial struggles that haunt them as a victim of childhood cancer.
