On Monday October 26, Emerald Lake Golf Club hosted the 6th Annual Samaritan’s Feet Golf Classic.  More than 20 NFL, Boxing & Nascar celebrities joined nearly 100 other golfers to help raise funds and awareness for the international efforts of Samaritan’s Feet.  In total more $50,000 was raised to put shoes on needy children in over 50 countries throughout the world.

Samaritan’s Feet is a non-profit organization dedicated to changing lives though Shoes of Hope distributions around the world. 300 million people wake up each morning without a pair of shoes to protect their feet from injury and disease. The goal of Samaritan’s Feet is to provide shoes to 10 million of these individuals in the next 10 years by teaching them a biblical story of faith, hope, and love, demonstrating those truths in touching them through washing their feet, and treating them to a new pair of shoes and socks.  To learn more visit www.samaritansfeet.org.  You can help by texting the word “shoes” to 85944 to donate $5.00 which will put a new pair of shoes on a needy child!
