RMHC Northwest Ohio hosts raffle

Chance to win a trip to play Pebble Beach

The Golf Trip of a Lifetime: Kevin’s Journey with Lexus Champions for Charity. In a world where good fortune often feels elusive, Kevin Bush found himself in a moment of disbelief and exhilaration. It all began with an innocuous email that could have easily been dismissed as spam. As the owner of Nothing Bundt Cakes, a regular supporter of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), his wife’s intuition nudged him to reconsider. “You bought raffle tickets, it might be legit!” she exclaimed.

Kevin’s instincts initially urged him to delete the email claiming he was the winner of the Lexus Champions for Charity raffle. But with his wife’s encouragement, he reached out to RMHC. The confirmation he received left him stunned yet elated. “It was disbelief. Enthusiasm. Insane feeling to win,” he recalls.

For Kevin, a seasoned golfer of 35 years and a member of Highland Meadows Golf Club, the prospect of playing world-renowned courses like Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Links at Spanish Bay, and Spyglass Hill Golf Course was a dream come true. What made it even more special was the chance to share this once-in-a-lifetime experience with his 23-year-old son, Connor, who shares his passion for golf.



From the moment they stepped off the plane, Kevin and Connor were enveloped in first-class VIP treatment. Awaiting them was a Lexus VIP shuttle, ready to whisk them away to The Inn at Spanish Bay, a luxurious 5-star resort. The welcome reception, complete with delectable food, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres, set the tone for the extraordinary days ahead.



The room boasted breathtaking views of the ocean and the meticulously manicured courses they were about to conquer. Each day was a new adventure, filled with camaraderie and unforgettable moments. At Pebble Beach, they marveled at the beauty of the course and played exceptionally well. Spyglass Hill presented its own challenges with its narrow fairways and deep rough, but the experience was nothing short of exhilarating. Spanish Bay provided the perfect finale, highlighted by Connor’s remarkable eagle on the 17th hole.

Reflecting on his journey, Kevin’s advice to potential ticket buyers is resounding. “If you are a golfer, it is better than a powerball. You have incredible odds,” he asserts. “This is the kind of experience that money can’t buy. It is special. It makes you feel good. It warms your heart. And it’s the trip of a lifetime.”

What truly stood out for Kevin was the partnership between Lexus and RMHC. Beyond the extraordinary golfing experience, he gained a newfound appreciation for Lexus’s commitment to supporting the community. “Sometimes you have an interaction with an organization, and it really changes your perception of their culture and values. This trip did that for us,” he reflects. As Kevin and Connor reminisce about their unforgettable journey, their story serves as a testament to the transformative power of dreams fulfilled and the profound impact of organizations coming together to make a difference.
