Next month local community members will tee up at The Peninsula Club along the shores of Lake Norman to help homeless children around Charlotte.
A Child’s Place is helping spread the word about the need for helping homeless children in our local schools, according to their website “in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, more than 4,000 children are homeless. Imagine trying to complete homework in a noisy and crowded shelter, or sleeping in your car the night before a big test. For more than 4,000 children in our community, that is a reality. A Child’s Place intervenes at the family’s point of crisis, helping stabilize the family and addressing needs to help the children succeed in the classroom.”
Ivester Jackson agent Julie Lopez supports the cause and says “every day in our work we see the importance of homes in children’s lives and I think it is important to help those who are not so lucky to have a home. ”
This year the tournament will be at 1 p.m. on Monday, April 16, at The Peninsula Club in Cornelius, NC, so you still have time to sign up.
All funds raised from this year’s Swing Fore A Child’s Place Golf Tournament will go directly to A Child’s Place to support their crucial work with homeless children in Charlotte area schools.
Staff from the organization work in the highest-need CMS schools every day, they help ease the impact of being homeless on a child’s education.
They hope to meet the goal reached last year of $200,000 raised by the generous support of players and sponsors.
