IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, July 3, 2024 / — The 27th Annual Stars & Stripes Tournament, hosted by the Stars & Stripes Children’s Foundation from June 27-30 at the Hilton Los Cabos, Mexico, was a monumental success, raising $4.6 million for Miracles for Kids and other outstanding children’s charities. For 15 years, Miracles for Kids has proudly partnered with Stars & Stripes, traveling each year with donors, board members, and Miracles’ families to create unforgettable memories and support a noble cause. This event has significantly contributed to funding select Southern California and Mexico-based children’s charities, with Miracles for Kids participating as a lead charitable partner.

More than just a fundraiser, this year’s event was nothing short of spectacular. Stars & Stripes creates lasting memories for participating organizations and attendees alike. At this year’s event, guests enjoyed swimming with dolphins, deep-sea fishing, rejuvenating spa treatments, cooking classes and lunch at ACRE. There was also a Miracles for Kids golf hole where players enjoyed Miracle Margaritas while playing giant Miracle Pong.

About the Stars & Stripes Children’s Foundation:
Named after the children it helps – the real stars of the tournament – and the striped marlin in the Sea of Cortez, Stars & Stripes began in 1996 as a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County. Now in its 27th year, the Stars & Stripes beneficiaries – including ten Southern California/Mexico-based charities and three honorary charities – receive much-needed financial assistance which they can use to expand their programs. Team registration fees pay for all costs of the event. When you make a donation to Stars & Stripes, proceeds are used to match dollars raised by the beneficiary charities, allowing the money they raise to increase and create more impact. Learn more at
