(LUBBOCK, TX) -- The first-ever Las Brisas Summer Golf Classic was a success.

The local steakhouse partnered with Make-A-Wish-- hoping to raise enough money to grant the wishes of two children with life-threatening medical conditions.

The tournament itself wasn't the only source of fundraising.

A custom golf cart also went for more than $5,000 at auction.

"We're going to raise between $15,000 and $20,000 this year," Las Brisas owner, Kendall Howard, said.

On average, granting one wish costs about $8,000.
