The Shriners Children's Open is the event that generates the most funding for the Shriners Children's Hospitals. It attracts golf's best and brightest. Champions from previous years have included Rod Pampling, Ryan Moore, Jonathon Byrd, and Tiger Woods. The Children's Open is a PGA tour and is played every year in Las Vegas in the month of October. The event receives an extensive amount of coverage and is featured on a variety of news and television networks. The Golf Channel gives the event almost 15 hours of air time.
The golf tournament has existed since 1983, but in 2007 it was decided that the Shriners Children's Hospital would take over its management, with Justin Timberlake hosting the event for five years, from 2008-2012. Brandt England lends his expertise in leadership to his work as General Committee Chairman for Corporate Hospitality. During his time at the University of Toledo, he filled many leadership roles and has continued to do so throughout his life.
While at the University, he ran for Student Body President in an election that received the highest voter turnout the school had ever seen. Not only was he listed in the nationwide directory of Who's Who, but he was also designated as one of Toledo University's Presidential Ambassadors. He was chosen for the appointment because of his hospitality and character and as such was to represent the school to the public. The position entailed meeting elected officials, dignitaries, leaders in the community and the general populace.
The Shriner's Children's Hospitals are dedicated to helping children. Because of this desire to show compassion for others they have offered medical assistance to over one million children completely free of charge. In addition, their hospitals are leading the way in providing care in paediatrics.
