Cook Children's Hospital
Based in Fort Worth, Texas, the integrated Cook Children's system has more than 60 primary and specialty care offices throughout North Texas. Its service region includes Denton, Hood, Johnson, Parker, Tarrant and Wise counties, with an additional referral area encompassing nearly half the state.
Cook Children's traces its roots back to 1918, but throughout its continual change and robust growth, it still embraces an inspiring promise – to improve the health of every child in its region through the prevention and treatment of illness, disease and injury. To live up to this promise, Cook Children’s combines the art of caring with the use of leading technology and extraordinary collaboration to provide exceptional care for every child.
One initiative we have to support Cook is the annual Cook Children's Charity Golf Classic, held about two weeks prior to the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. This fun, exclusive event allows foursomes to get a sneak peek at the course in tournament condition. If you would like to participate in this event by sponsoring a foursome, please call the Tournament Office.
Birdies for Charity
The Birdies for Charity program is an opportunity for charitable organizations to utilize the awareness and magnitude of a PGA TOUR event to further their fundraising initiatives. The Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial is excited to offer this program to partner with 501 (c) 3 charitable organizations that contribute so much to the Tarrant County community. The program generated $4.6 million for Tarrant County charities in 2011 recognized as one of the top Birdies for Charity program on the PGA TOUR.
