Tuesday, September 27, 2011  //  0 Comments  //  News

On Tuesday, September 13, local golfers showed their support of Fellowship Housing by participating in the Annual Golf Outing.  With over 75 golfers in attendance, $80,000 was raised to help homeless and at-risk single mothers and their children.

A beautiful day on the Stonewall Orchard Golf Course, golfers enjoyed participating in competitive games, such as “Beat the Pro” and trying for a Hole-in-One to win a Harley-Davidson Motorcycle.  After the golf games concluded, guests heard from a current mom in the Fellowship Housing program.  Sharing that her home was in foreclosure after her relationship of 20 years ended, she and her teenage daughter “didn’t know where to turn”. As this mom prepares for graduation, she has become debt free and is pursuing a home through Habitat for Humanity.  The event was sponsored by many local businesses including the Rolfs Family, Abbott Labs, Orsini Healthcare, and the Fitzgerald Family.  A complete list of our generous sponsors is listed here.
