Register Now For The Golden Valley Golf & Lawn Bowling Classic
How can you give back to your community and have fun at the same time? The Golden Valley Golf & Lawn Bowling Classic, coming up Sept 17 at Brookview, provides one opportunity. Now is the time to get a few friends or neighbors together for a golf foursome or lawn bowling team and sign up to help make Golden Valley a better place.
Each year the Golden Valley Golf & Lawn Bowling Classic raises money for golden valley human services. The City’s Human Services Commission then advises the City Council regarding how to allocate the money to organizations that benefit Golden Valley residents in need.
Currently funded organizations provide services to local seniors who need help maintaining their independence, families who need food and financial help, home-bound people who need meals delivered, youth experiencing difficulties, domestic violence victims who need emergency shelter and assistance, and parents who need prenatal and postpartum support, to name a few.
The 2017 Classic raised around $4,880, and it is hoped that this year’s event will raise even more. Organizers of the Classic are looking to increase community participation and hope to encourage Golden Valley neighbors to sign up to help the cause.
You don’t need to be good at golf or lawn bowling. All you need is a desire to get involved and help others while enjoying a day at Brookview. Local corporations and businesses are also encouraged to sponsor the event.
The day starts off at 11:30 am with lunch, followed by a 1 pm start for both golf and lawn bowling. Afterwards, kick back and socialize on Brookview’s deck and patio.
