Take a swing Golf tournament raises funds to end the cycle of family violence
Grab your golf clubs for an event that will benefit families.
The Center for Family Services’ ninth annual “Golf Tournament” is set for June 18-19 at Old Marsh Golf Club, 7500 Old Marsh Road in Palm Beach Gardens.
The event will kickoff with a cocktail reception and silent auction June 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The festivities will continue June 19 with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start.
Proceeds from the two-day event will directly support the center’s SAFE Kids Program, which helps more than 350 kids annually. The SAFE Kids program specializes in treating victims of various forms of abuse and/or violence. It is the only official sexual abuse treatment provider in Palm Beach County recognized by the Florida Department of Health.
“It is because of the support of the many sponsors and supporters of this tournament that we are able to provide this vital program to children and teens in need through SAFE,” said Dr. Ted Greer, CEO of the Center for Family Services.
The annual golf tournament is co-chaired by Gary Pohrer, Bill McKernan and Daniel Kahan. Honorary chairs are Larry Silverstein and Gloria Herman. Committee members include Carol Dixon, Barbara Gilbert, Billy Hungerford, PJ Layng, Meg O’Grady and ChungWong.
The entry fee for the tournament is $395 per player or $1,500 per foursome. The cocktail reception is $25 for those not participating in the tournament.
