2021 Chipping for Charity GOLF OUTING RECIPIENT - Boys & Girls ClubS of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth!
EHTC SELECTS BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF GRAND RAPIDS YOUTH COMMONWEALTH AS THE 2021 CHIPPING FOR CHARITY RECIPIENT
From January to February every year, EHTC accepts proposals from community organizations as to why they should become the recipient of this year’s 33rd Annual Chipping for Charity golf outing. With the cancellation of the outing in 2020 due to COVID-19, the winning organization from 2019's proposal process will be the 2021 recipient. Some of the guidelines considered included having the money stay locally and that the money would significantly impact the charity.
EHTC would like to congratulate Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth as the 2021 Chipping for Charity recipient. This non-profit organization enables all young people to reach their full potential as responsible citizens through education, recreation, and positive community experiences in partnership with the Grand Rapids Police Department. Founded in 1938, the intention was to have police officers have daily interactions with youth from the inner city of Grand Rapids through police-directed recreation and education activities. This organization helps to fill the void due to a lack of access to extra-curricular activities such as sports and art, while also providing a steady adult role model and mentor for the children.
Money from this year’s Chipping for Charity Golf outing will be used for their Triple Play program, which works in collaboration with the US Department of Health and Human Services to demonstrate eating smart, keeping fit and forming positive relationships that add up to a healthy lifestyle. The program focuses on the three components:
- Mind - extracurricular activities reduce the use of drugs and teenage pregnancy
- Body - daily fitness challenges to all levels of athletic ability
- Soul - teaching age-appropriate, positive social skills
EHTC is excited to choose Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth as the 2021 Chipping for Charity Golf Outing Recipient. Please plan on joining the EHTC team at our 33rd annual Chipping for Charity Golf outing on Tuesday, August 10, 2021 at Scott Lake Country Club in Comstock Park, MI. You can help make a difference to cultivate future community leaders and establish safer and stronger communities in West Michigan.
