30th Annual Chipping for Charity Results
Since 1987, EHTC has hosted an annual charity golf outing known as Chipping for Charity. Chipping for Charity provides an opportunity to help the community by donating to a worthy, local charity and enjoying a day of golf, fun, and camaraderie. Participants may golf, attend the reception, become a sponsor or donate to the charity. Nearly $270,000 has been raised in the Chipping for Charity events since 1987!
In 2017, the local charity chosen to be the 30th Annual Chipping for Charity recipient was GR8 Sports, Great Kids.
On September 20, 2017, $18,600 was raised to benefit GR8 Sports, Great Kids. EHTC was able to donate its highest amount ever at the 30th annual event!
This organization, a division of the Student Advancement Foundation, ensures students in the Grand Rapids Public School (GRPS) District have access to sports, regardless of their ability to pay. Studies have shown that increased amounts of physical activity positively impact a student's ability to go to school, focus, study and learn. The availability to these programs after school also enables students to have safe activities to partake in once the school day is over.
Funds raised from EHTC's 30th Annual Chipping for Charity Golf Outing will help to :
- Field over 150 middle school teams in fourteen sports, engaging over 2,500 students
- Offer four sports to elementary students with over 3,500 students participating
- Help to develop exceptional, well-rounded student athletes in the GRPS district while encouraging healthy lifestyles
THANK YOU to all the sponsors, golfers and volunteers for your contributions! Your generosity helped to make this the most successful Chipping for Charity Golf Outing to date!
