After being treated at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children as a child, Ben Sater vowed to raise $1 million for the Dallas orthopedic center by the time he went to college.
After eight years’ worth of golf tournaments for kids, the soon-to-be Austin College freshman has reached the goal, with nearly $19,000 to spare.
He and organizers announced Monday that they’ve raised
$1,018,842 for the hospital that treats children free of charge. They did it through golf tournaments for children ages 7 to 18.
