2018 Chipping for Charity
EHTC SELECTS CHILDREN WITH HAIR LOSS AS THEIR 2018 CHIPPING FOR CHARITY RECIPIENT
From January to February, EHTC accepted proposals from community organizations as to why they should become the recipient of this year’s 31st Annual Chipping for Charity golf outing. 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 Children With Hair Loss as the 2018 Chipping for Charity recipient. This non-profit organization provides human hair replacements at no cost to children and young adults facing medically-related hair loss. When a child’s hair is lost due to cancer treatments, alopecia, trichotillomania, burns or other reasons, the painful effects are far deeper than cosmetic. Children are eligible to receive a human hair replacement each year until they turn 21.
Since being founded in 2000, CWHL has helped more than 4,000 children across the United States, with 569 children receiving hair replacements and care kits in 2017 alone. Children receive hair replacements as well as a care kit, including a Styrofoam head and stand, wig tape, styling tools, hair care products, head scarves, hat and headbands. This package is an experience the children will remember for a long time and can cost up to $5,000 per kit.
Money from the 2018 Chipping for Charity Golf Outing will be used to:
- Purchase human hair replacements for children
- Help fund the care kits sent with the hair replacements
- Used only for children referred through Grand Rapids’ DeVos Children’s Hospital
EHTC is excited to choose Children With Hair Loss as the 2018 Chipping for Charity Golf Outing Recipient. Hair can make all the difference in the world to a child, and we are proud to assist in their mission in “Covering Young Heads to Heal Young Hearts.”
Plan on joining the EHTC team at our 31st annual Chipping for Charity Golf outing on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at Scott Lake Country Club in Comstock Park, MI.
REGISTRATION AND SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON
