About the Event

In 2012 and at the age of 63, BrightStone lost a dear friend, Jim Hinton. Jim was a board member, devoted father and husband, an avid golfer, and a long-time caring and compassionate supporter of BrightStone.

To honor his memory BrightStone renamed its annual golf benefit to “The Jim Hinton Memorial Golf Benefit.”

As BrightStone's most established fundraising event, the Jim Hinton Memorial Golf Benefit attracts many sponsors, corporate executives, and compassionate people who love to golf and who want to help adults with special needs have the best life possible.

The success of the benefit depends on golfers willing to enthusiastically share their love of BrightStone with others. Golfers do not “pay to play.” Rather, golfers agree to share the mission of BrightStone with family, friends and business owners giving them an opportunity to prayerfully consider supporting BrightStone.

We encourage each golfer to set their own fundrasising goal (we suggest $3,000..."shoot for the moon and reach the stars") to help us fund our general operations, programs and services. We want golfers to share our mission with as many people as possible and not focus on money - and see what happens!

Thankfully, when individuals and organizations learn about BrightStone through this awareness process, they often feel led to make a donation and many continue to do so each year during the golf benefit. These new supporters often become future volunteers, buy our student-crafted products, and attend future events!

As golfers make a concerted effort to reach out to their network of friends, family, co-workers and business contacts - they acquaint people with the mission of BrightStone and our life-changing program.

The event is quite competitive and our dedicated golfers and sponsors are some of BrightStone's most loyal friends!
