32nd 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 $307,000 has been raised in the Chipping for Charity events since 1987!
In 2019, the local charity chosen to be the 32nd Annual Chipping for Charity recipient was Urban Family Ministries.
On June 26, 2019, $17,000 was raised to benefit Urban Family Ministries.
This organization serves the urban community and the whole family. Their ministry focuses on relationships, providing opportunities to help empower families and helping them to make strong, positive choices for their future and the future of their families.
Urban Family Ministries provides a variety of programs and activities for people in the community:
- Super Saturday – offers children large group activities such as crafts, lessons and singing
- College Connection - matches a participant with a college student, ensuring the vision of college is an option
- Summer camps – gets children out of the city to experience a new environment
- Support Groups - enables adults to learn about the possibilities of transforming their lives
- An open door – a safe, judgement-free place for neighborhood and community events
Money from the 2019 Chipping for Charity Golf Outing will enable Urban Family Ministries to:
- Fund In Their Shoes, a program that takes groups through different scenarios of walking alongside families in need to gain a better understating and break down misconceptions
- Purchase a newer, safer 15-passanger van to provide transportation for families to and from programs and activities
