Family Promise hosting marathon golf outing to fight homelessness
Family Promise of Summit County is looking for a few good golfers with big hearts Monday, Sept. 24 to help stomp out area homelessness.
Tee time for the sixth annual 100 Holes for the Homeless golf tournament, at the St. Bernard Country Club in Richfield, Ohio, is 6:30 a.m. Golf balls, tees, carts and food will all be provided.
The marathon golf outing is Family Promise’s biggest fundraiser of the year. While there is no charge to enter, golfers are asked to secure pledges from family, friends, neighbors and coworkers for each hole golfed. The goal is for each golfer to raise at least $2,500.
All proceeds benefit Family Promise of Summit County, a nonprofit organization that provides shelter, food, case management and hospitality to homeless Summit County families.
To register for the 100 Holes for the Homeless or to pledge a golfer, call 330.253.8081.
