11-year-old’s annual golf tournament builds homes in Haiti

While most 11-year-old boys spent their summers sleeping in or playing video games, Rafe Cochran was busy planning his second golf tournament in the name of philanthropy.

Rafe was introduced to Food For The Poor as part of a third-grade field trip. After hearing about the organization, he said he knew he had to become involved.

The Palm Beach Day School sixth grader decided to combine his urge to give back with his passion for golf. He asked his parents and parents’ friends to pledge money for different shots he made during a golf tournament – $100 for pars, $200 for birdies and $250 for eagles.

After he’d completed the tournament, he’d raised enough money to build two homes in Haiti.
