IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Miracles for Kids is celebrating the success of the 26th Annual Stars & Stripes Tournament in Los Cabos, Mexico, helping to raise $5.2 Million for the children’s charities supported by the Stars & Stripes Children’s Foundation. Miracles for Kids has been a lead charitable partner of Stars & Stripes for the last 13 years, bringing down teams of donors, Miracles for Kids families and volunteers each year. This world-class charity fundraiser brings together over 500 supporters from across the nation, and combines spectacular deep-sea fishing, play golf on Mexico’s finest courses, cooking classes, dolphin experiences and live musical entertainment by artists such as Sheryl Crow, Uncle Kracker, Ann Wilson and more!

Since 1997, the event has helped to raise funds for select Southern California/Mexico-based children’s charities, in addition to three honorary charities, with Miracles for Kids participating as a lead charitable partner for over a decade. This year, the Stars & Stripes team set an ambitious goal to make the largest single-year impact, following a 25-year total of over $50 million donated to youth-based organizations. More than just a fundraiser, Stars & Stripes creates lasting memories for participating organizations and attendees alike.

“We look forward to the Stars & Stripes event every year, and this year with Sheryl Crow was amazing,” states Autumn Strier, chief executive officer and co-founder of Miracles for Kids. “Our mission at Miracles for Kids is to relieve some of the financial burdens families of critically ill kids are going through, and we count on the support of the Tournament to help us achieve our goals. We were thrilled at the success of this year’s event, and thank all our supporters who made it possible.”

At this year’s event, Miracles for Kids had some big winners in both tournaments, and each day was filled with fun activities to choose from. On Friday the Angel Flight families of Miracles for Kids participated in a cooking class at ACRE where they learned how to press fresh tortillas, make ceviche, mole, and a lemon curd dessert. Team TRAFFIK won 1st place overall in the fishing tournament for catching the most marlin. Team Miracle Makers reeled in and released a 180 lb striped marlin and a 150 lb blue marlin. They also brought in six tuna that were donated to the local orphanage! In the golf tournament, the Broke Bankers Team took 3rd place overall with a total score of 61 points. Elaine Meyer, Bob Rovzar, and Robert Acre-Torres all won closest to the pin, and Aaron Ryan took home longest-drive for men for the second year in a row! Miracles for Kids live auction item, an Ultimate F1 Las Vegas Experience for 6, was a huge success and sold for $39,000 to a fabulous group of donors who will get to watch as Formula 1 lights up the sports and entertainment capital of the world in November 2023.

It was a beautiful and successful weekend raising money for Miracles for Kids and the other youth-based Southern California and Mexico beneficiaries.
