For 23 years, Service King Collision Repair Centers and its Dallas-Fort Worth teammates have welcomed the fall with its annual DFW Charity Golf Tournament. This year, the tradition continued as 375 golfers hit the links on Oct. 16 to raise $125,000 for local non-profit organizations ahead of the holiday season.
On Friday, Dec. 1, Service King teammates proudly presented a check for $75,000 to representatives and families from Heroes for Children as the primary beneficiary of the event. Service King will go on to support additional local charity organizations throughout the holiday season with remaining proceeds raised from the tournament, including Interfaith Family Services, The Samaritan Inn and more.   “Heroes for Children is honored to be the beneficiary of this year’s Service King DFW Charity Golf Tournament,” said Larissa Linton, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Heroes for Children. “The funds raised will enable Heroes for Children to continue our mission of providing financial and social assistance to families across Texas who have a child battling cancer.

It’s our hope the funds raised from this tournament helps to further their mission and provide hope to families across North Texas in the process.” The Service King Cares program, which functions as Service King’s community outreach initiative, exists to positively impact people, organizations and causes for the greater good of local communities.
