Madison travels to the Dominican Republic

Madison with Monkey

“ It started with a television commercial and ended with the trip of a lifetime in the sun and sand of the Dominican Republic. ”

While watching television, Madison saw Punta Cana and knew that she had to visit. Before long, she and her family were whisked away for a once in a lifetime wish-granting experience! She posed with exotic animals, swam in clear waters, and received top-notch spa treatment!

Madison SnorkleIt all started with a dream that came true when Madison and her family left on a 7-day, 6-night trip to Punta Cana, DR.

While in the Dominican Republic, Madison rode horses on the beach, petted stingrays at Stingray Bay, made friends with an adorable monkey and a pair of parrots. She took a swim in the ocean and got her hair and nails done during a relaxing spa day with her mom and sister. She posed for pictures drenched from head to toe from swimming in the pristine waters and showed off all of her new friends so we could all see how much fun she had!

Madison’s wish was adopted by The Invitational Golf Tournament, hosted for the last 14 years by Mark Brady and Curtis Vann in the Jackson area. Over the past 14 years, The Invitational has raised over $150,000 for the Mississippi Chapter.
