Golfers To Tee Off In Support Of Kentucky’s Abused, Neglected Children
On Monday, June 6, supporters of Sunrise Children’s Services will take to the links for the eighth annual Sunrise Classic, a golf event that’s become one of the agency’s marquee community outreach and fundraising activities. This year, 17 sponsors will take to the links at a prestigious east end Louisville golf course in support of Sunrise’s mission to help Kentucky’s abused and neglected children.
“It’s our hope that this tournament will prove as meaningful and moving for those who participate as it is helpful to Sunrise,” said Christi Moffett, Sunrise’s senior director of marketing. “For the past 10 years, the Sunrise Classic has helped provide us with the means of sheltering and protecting hundreds of abused and neglected children each day.”
Last year, 30 teams featuring 131 golfers took part in the Sunrise Classic.
This year’s classic will include one flight with a tee time at 11 a.m. Those sponsoring teams for this year’s outing include:
“Many of our participating golfers have played in past years or donated in other ways, which shows the strength of our relationship with the business community and their commitment to helping kids in crisis,” said Dale Suttles, president of Sunrise Children’s Services.
Sunrise Children’s Services offers Kentucky’s hurting children and families a continuum of Christ-centered care, including therapeutic, residential and foster care programs for abused, abandoned, and victimized children throughout the state. Sunrise’s nonprofit ministry began in 1869 — today, it is a fully licensed behavioral health service organization helping change the lives of at-risk children throughout the Commonwealth.
