Golf enthusiasts wanting to make a difference in the lives of hurting young women are invited to register for The Mercy Golf Challenge scheduled for Monday, August 3 at Westhaven Golf Club in Franklin, Tenn.
Meant to give golfers of any skill level an opportunity to support Mercy, the four-person scramble will help raise funds needed for the care and counseling provided to the young women at Mercy who are dealing with issues such as physical and sexual abuse (including sex trafficking), eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, depression and unplanned pregnancy.
“Events like this are vital in making it possible for the girls who apply to Mercy to come free of charge,” said Adrienne Lindsey, Mercy Community Relations Manager. “For many girls, it’s the difference between life and death.”
Since 1983, Mercy has served over three thousand young women in its four U.S. locations, including Nashville, Tenn.; Monroe, La.; St. Louis, Mo.; and Lincoln, Calif. The Mercy program helps young women find freedom from their life-controlling issues and empowers them to serve in their communities as productive citizens.
At the Mercy Golf Challenge, golfers will specifically hear from one of the many Mercy graduates who has found freedom from her issues and now lives a transformed life.
Interested golfers are encouraged to sign up by July 27th. The $150 registration fee includes cart and green fees for 18 holes of golf on the nationally recognized Westhaven course, continental breakfast, lunch buffet, and prizes for top-scoring individuals and teams. Starting tee time is set for 9:00 a.m.
Mercy is thankful for the support and generosity of top sponsors Ramsey Family Foundation Trust, Gift Sponsor, and LegacyTree Foundation, Putting Green Sponsor.
