25 years of drives, chips and putts (Story 31 of 50)
Updated: Feb 4
CCHO is celebrating 50 years of ministry! Throughout 2019, we will be sharing stories of the lives that have been forever changed by the work God has done through our family of ministries (CCHO, Encourage Foster Care and Encompass Christian Counseling). Today, we are pleased to share the story of our 2019 Caring4Kids Golf Classic. This annual event regularly brings together more than 60 different golfers in support of the work being done at CCHO and throughout our ministries. Story #31 in our 50 Stories for 50 Years of Ministry series recaps the 25th edition of the C4K Golf Classic, which took place Monday, August 26, 2019.
What started in 1994 as a small fundraiser for CCHO in our 25th year of ministry has now become an annual event, 25 years later, that allows our family of ministries to continue providing services and support for children, adults and families in need.
This year, 64 golfers from 16 teams teed off at Hawk’s Next Golf Course for 36 memorable holes. Teams competed for prizes like longest drive of the day, closest to the pin and longest putt while also shooting for the best team totals on the first 18 and second 18 holes, but the real focus was on supporting CCHO and its family of ministries.
The 25th annual Caring4Kids Golf Classic was a huge success. Save for a couple of late rain drops, the weather was absolutely gorgeous. Golfers were welcomed with a warm breakfast courtesy of Biscuit Uprising, lunch was served during the first round and then each team made their way back to the CCHO campus for a delicious steak dinner. The night was capped off with the announcement of the winning teams and golfers.
We are thrilled to announce that the 2019 C4K golf outing raised a total of $50,000 for CCHO and its family of ministries. Thank you so much to all the golfers and sponsors who have blessed the children, adults and families we serve in an incredible way!
