Photographing the 2019 Speedway Children Miracle Network Golf Tournament
This year marks the 9th year OMS Photo participated in and photographed the annual Speedway Children’s Miracle Network Golf Tournament. The events of June 10th and 11th were as fun as ever. Each year we partner with Bloom Creative Group, Speedway, and the Children’s Miracle Network to document the event.
The annual Speedway Miracle Golf Tournament was created to raise funds for children in need. Twenty-eight years and counting, the tournament has almost 800 golfers participating in the event every year. All proceeds and funds raised during the event support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The festivities additionally featured a dinner to honor the many families the charity has helped through their experiences. Speedway supports 80 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the US. A child representative and their family from some of these hospitals come to the event each year.
Our photographer Matt Witherspoon was taking portraits this year of the children and their families. Matt loves this event, and the work we do to support this fantastic organization. Every person involved in the shoot kept everything upbeat and full of laughter. While Matt was taking photos, our photographer TJ Vissing was participating in the tournament.
It is always inspiring to work with these kids and their families. The wonderfully supportive nature of the event reminded us of the importance of giving back to our communities.
