Randall McDaniel Golf Classic and Holiday Concert Cancelled 

Open Arms Plans Virtual Event for November


Due to the COVID pandemic, Open Arms Home for Children will not be holding its annual in-person fundraising events in 2020.

The Randall McDaniel Charity Golf Classic scheduled for October 2nd in the Twin Cities, and the annual holiday concert at the Wigwam Resort on December 5th in Phoenix, have been cancelled.  

In their place, Open Arms will hold a virtual online fundraiser from November 13-21.  We hope you will join us for this fun and innovative approach to sharing the stories and blessings of the children at Open Arms.

Stay tuned for more information on how you can help us continue to provide love and security to the 58 children who call Open Arms “home”!

We expect both the golf tournament and concert will return in 2021. Thank you for supporting our children during these unprecedented times.

Please stay well!

Get to Know Randall

14 Seasons, 12 Consecutive Pro Bowls

Randall McDaniel began his pro career in 1988 when he was drafted in the 1st round by the Minnesota Vikings.  Fourteen years later, he retired as one of the best offensive guards in the history of the game.  His 12 straight Pro Bowl appearances are tied for the most ever in NFL history.  He started 202 consecutive games – missing only one game in 220 regular season starts – a remarkable feat for an offensive lineman.  Randall was inducted into the Vikings Ring of Honor in 2006, the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2009.

Following his football career, Randall began his second career as an educator at Neill Elementary in the Robbinsdale (MN ) Area Schools.   Together with his wife, Marianne, Randall continues to make a positive impact on his community and in the lives of young people. Through his golf tournament, that passion now extends to help support the orphaned children at Open Arms Home in South Africa.

About Open Arms

Open Arms Home for Children was founded by Bob and Sallie Solis of Phoenix, Arizona. After taking a family mission trip to South Africa in 2005, the Solis family felt called to do something about the plight of children orphaned by AIDS in the country.

Since its doors were opened, Open Arms has been so grateful for the support of Randall and Marianne McDaniel. Please join us on October 2nd to continue to make a difference for the 58 children who call Open Arms “home!”

Our Mission

We exist for one reason: to provide a loving residential environment that serves the needs of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
