The Helping Hands Society will hold its annual golf outing at the Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club in Mountaintop on Friday, August 19 with a 1 p.m. shotgun start.
The Helping Hands Society is a non-profit organization that offers educational and therapeutic services to special needs children of Luzerne, Carbon and Schuylkill Counties. Teachers and therapists work with children from birth to elementary age that suffer from delays that impact their daily lives such as autism, cerebral palsy and deficiencies in their fine and gross motor skills. The organization is funded through contributions from the generous public, but as the economy struggles, so does the Helping Hands Society. All of the proceeds from this golf tournament go straight to the therapies that each young child receives – so come out and support the children in your community!
Louis Dominick of Dominick’s Café in Hudson is volunteering his time to serve on the committee to assist the organization in raising as much awareness for the tournament and Helping Hands as a whole. “When I heard about this organization and that it was fully funded on contributions, we couldn’t help but get involved. We’re hoping for a great turn out that day.”
The Captain & Crew tournament will offer many exciting prizes, games, hotdogs on the course, dinner immediately following and a sports memorabilia auction by PAC Signatures. Golfers can register for $100 by contacting Joell Martinelli, director of marketing and fundraising at the Helping Hands Society 570.455.4958 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are also many sponsorship opportunities available for this much needed fundraiser.
