Since its inception, over $461,000 has been donated to various persons and organizations in the Mansfield area.

Below is a list of just a few people that have benefitted from the Battle of the Nines success: 
  • Three Mansfield families who are coping with cancer and struggling financially. 
  • A WCCC employee who had become homeless due to unfortunate circumstances, get into an apartment, and set up with beds and bedding for her three children.
  • The family of a 48 year-old mother and cancer survivor who died suddenly following knee surgery with medical and funeral expenses. Because of the cancer, the family wasn’t able to get insurance for this young mother.
  • A young grandmother who needed eye surgery but didn’t have insurance and wasn’t old enough for Medicare.
  • The family of a WCCC employee with medical/hospital, ambulance and funeral costs when their young daughter’s life ended unexpectedly.
  • A MISD teacher (mother of 4 girls) who has fought breast cancer for several years was recently told the cancer has metastasized to her lungs, liver, and bones. They have been overwhelmed with bills and other expenses
  • Helped a family whose father had to have gall bladder surgery in Houston before Christmas and didn’t have any insurance. 
  • Helped a young mother rebound from her 3rd bout with cancer. Only in her mid-20’s and she is struggling with mounting medical bills, limited ability to work all while trying to be the best mother she can.
  • Assisted two WCCC employees who encountered unexpected health conditions and mounting medical bills
  • A young 14 yr old MISD girl has been battling and rare disease (MELAS syndrome), which has recently taken her vision and started to impact on her nervous system. 

We were able to get in touch with Todd Chappell, the Chairman of the Board for Battle of the Nines, to learn more about the mission, goals, and details surrounding the upcoming tournament. 

Tell me about yourself. What's your role in the tournament? 

TC: I recently became Chairman of the Board for Battle of the Nines. I host regular meetings to create a fun and successful charity event. I’ve participated in the Battle of the Nines event for several years now and have been on the board for the last two years. I truly enjoy seeing local families benefit greatly from our fundraising efforts. Our board is made up of people who care about the lives of Mansfield families, and our goal is to give back 100% of the funds raised to those in need.


What is the mission of the tournament? 

TC: To seek and search out families in Mansfield who need some assistance to get back on their feet.
   

How can people get involved? 

TC: We host one event per year, which kicks off on Friday evening and includes music, food, drinks, contest, and live/silent auction. Then on Sat we have a chipping and putting contest leading up to the couples (co-ed) golf tournament. We have all levels of golfers come out and play, we understand not everyone loves golf so we really try to create a relaxed and fun atmosphere. The last 3 years participation has grown and we are excited about 2016 event. 
  

How can someone help during the tournament? 

TC: We can always use volunteers on Saturday with the golf tournament setup and registration for those who prefer not to play golf. We also have sponsorship opportunities and accept donations for the raffle and live auction.  
   

For more information about the tournament, you can visit their website. We hope to see you there!
