What began as a charity golf tournament run by the Modesto Sunrise Rotary Club has blossomed into a lasting legacy dedicated to serving school-aged children in Stanislaus County. The late Carl Boyett, a Rotary Past President and CEO or Boyett Petroleum, launched the Make Dreams Real Golf Tournament in 1989. In 2009, along with his wife, Carole, and the Boyett family, he established the Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund.

“It’s funny because when he started trying to build a million-dollar endowment, it wasn’t on our radar,” says his son and the company’s President, Dale Boyett. “It took a long time to build a sustainable, functionable, charitable foundation.
