The Golf Fore Kids’ Sake Challenge

The time for change is now and Board Member Joe Holston is defending the potential of youth! During these unprecedented times, we are continuing to serve and support our Bigs, Littles and families. We are matching new Bigs and Littles virtually, coordinating virtual match activities and providing resources, guidance, and support. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to cancel or delay our 2020 annual fundraisers but we continue to meet the need for critical youth mentoring services. As a long-time supporter of our organization, Joe recognizes the importance of keeping kids connected to communities and mentors during the social distancing and isolation caused by the pandemic. He was inspired to take up a 100-Hole Golf Challenge to raise funds for kids’ sake.

On Wednesday, September 2, Joe will attempt to golf 100-holes in a single day at Manada Golf Club in Grantville. His goal is to raise $20,000. CLICK HERE to make a donation today.

Joe is issuing a challenge! This October, take up Joe’s challenge; the 36-Hole Golf Challenge Fundraiser and join others in raising $60,000 to support youth mentoring. Want to challenge a friend? LET US KNOW! Questions? Email

Middle and High School Students are invited to attend. REGISTER HERE
