Great Turn Out For Turning Point Golf Tournament

Share this:

CHARLOTTE – A community that can come together like ours says a lot about the type of people that we are. The days of coming together and supporting a great cause are still a part of this wonderful place we call home. Our community members coming together for a great cause and creating great success is a true testament to the recent Turning Point Golf Tournament that was held at the Rolling Hills Country Club on Monday, October 4. The measure of success of the tournament not only comes from the money that was raised but also the wonderful experience that each person was able to take away from the event. From the perfect weather to the delicious food, the tournament was a day to remember for everyone that was there to enjoy it.

The tournament was able to raise $34,005 for Turning Point, a local organization that helps provide safe shelter and resources that are life-saving to survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. These funds are able to go back to help our local community and neighbors. The number of victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse is on the rise since the start of COVID-19, and these funds will be put back into the community to direcly help people in our own neighborhoods.

Success is where 23 teams of 4 golfers can come together and have a wonderful day golfing, smiling, and enjoying the sun while supporting a great cause. During the course of the day, the breakfast that was donated by Metro Diner was well-appreciated by all that participated in the event. Without the many donations from sponsors for the food and raffle prizes, the event would not have been possible.

Events of this nature are a great way for friends, families, and work colleagues to get together and spend a day full of activities. Each of the people that works, volunteers, and participates in the golf tournament is passionate about the Turning Point’s cause and is there for a reason. Turning Point is very appreciative that the community comes together and makes sure their event is a success. It is a great way to make such a huge impact for an organization that cares so much about the community.

Executive Director of Turning Point.  “Our sponsors and participants don’t just come out to play golf; they genuinely care about our mission and the people that we serve.  A successful event like this sends a clear message to our clients that our community has their back during such a difficult time in their life, and for that, we are so grateful.”
