The tournament, which is part of the official Rose Bowl Game®week activities, will take place at Industry Hills Golf Course at Pacific Palms Resort, named the “best public golf course in the U.S.” by the National Golf Course Owners Association in 2010.

The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation was created to support children in need, primarily in three target areas: children from low socio-economic backgrounds, mentally and/or physically challenged children and children at risk. The Foundation affords young individuals the opportunity to realize their potential and achieve their dreams. The organizations we assist and partner with provide stability in young people’s lives, support advocacy for children’s needs and offer channels that allow children to have a voice. "Giving back is very important to me and my entire family. We are in the position to help those less fortunate and want to do everything we can to make someone else's life a little better." Jim Mora

The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation strives to lend support to charities and children’s organization through monetary grants and increased community awareness, empowering organizations to help children improve their lives by: building and instilling confidence, encouraging health, wellness and safety, fostering learning opportunities, and using the sport of football as a springboard to talk about life and life lessons.

Jim and Shannon were thrilled to form the Count On Me Family Foundation in October of 2005 as a realization of their mutual passion and dedication to help children. Shannon was involved with Special Olympics at an early age when she and her family cheered on her older sister Whittney at local competitions.

That early outreach got Shannon hooked and Jim was soon to join in the fun. Since they have had the opportunity to live many places throughout their life together, Jim and Shannon recognized the need that is within every community, especially in regard to children.  “We are so blessed to have the chance to reach out to children who might need a little helping hand. Children are our future. They deserve to have the opportunity to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.” Shannon Mora.They were also amazed and appreciative of the power of people coming together for a common goal of good. Their aspiration to give back with a powerful and meaningful platform culminated in the creation of the Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation.

The Foundation raises funds and awareness to support children’s charities and organizations whose mission aligns with theirs, giving children the opportunity to realize their potential and achieve their dreams.
