SAVE THE DATE FOR THE 2019 GOLFING FOR KIDS
MONDAY, AUGUST 6TH, 2019 • CHAGRIN VALLEY COUNTRY CLUB
1 PM SHOTGUN START
ABUSED, NEGLECTED AND AT-RISK KIDS NEED YOU!
That’s right… You can make a difference! You can help local abused and neglected children by donating to Golfing for Kids. This 18-hole scramble on August 6th at Chagrin Valley Country Club will raise funds for Hope for Kids Geauga.
Family issues of addiction, mental health, domestic violence and/or sexual abuse cause devastating and long-term effects that impact children emotionally, socially, developmentally and academically. Children who experience abuse and/or neglect are at much higher risk for poor academic achievement, mental health disorders, drug abuse and criminal activities.
Since 2012 the opiate/heroin epidemic has caused an increase in child abuse and/or neglect cases and at-risk children served by social service agencies.
It is essential to reduce the stress, chaos and trauma to these children by funding enrichment, educational and developmental activities. The agencies through which Hope for Kids funds the needs of children do not have monies for such programs.
