31st 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 $290,000 has been raised in the Chipping for Charity events since 1987!
In 2018, the local charity chosen to be the 30th Annual Chipping for Charity recipient was Children With Hair Loss.
On June 27, 2018, $20,000 was raised to benefit Children With Hair Loss.
This organization, provides human hair replacement 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.These hair replacements, which also include a care kit, include a sytyrofoam head and stand, wig tape, styling tools, hair care products, head scarves, hat and headbands. The package is an experience the children will remember for a long time and can cost up to $5,000 per kit. Since being founded in 2000, Children With Hair Loss has provided care kits to more than 4,000 children.
Funds raised from EHTC's 31st Annual Chipping for Charity Golf Outing will help 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
