LUBBOCK, TX -- The focus at a luncheon earlier this month wasn't on winning or losing later on the golf course.

The focus was on kids like Jordan Frankfather.

Jordan was born with a heart defect and in 2012, her wish to go to Disney World was granted by Make-A-Wish.

"It makes me want to cry because I'm just so proud to be able to, now that we've experienced the wish, that we can now help grant other wishes," Jordan's mom, JoLynn, said. "It was definitely an experience of a lifetime."

That’s why JoLynn shares Jordan’s story whenever she can.

And on this afternoon in June, she shared it at Vista Bank’s Charity Classic Golf Tournament.

All of the proceeds from the tournament went to Make-A-Wish.

“We definitely met our goal and surpassed it, so we’re very excited and we’re hoping we can grant the wish of one (child) and maybe do a smaller wish for another child,” Kayla Currier with Vista Bank said.

Vista Bank ended up raising about $18,000 through the tournament.

“It’s just so wonderful to see all the support for Make-A-Wish from our community,” JoLynn added.
