Golfers Raise Money for Youth Challenge

Youth Challenge 40th Anniversary LogoMany thanks to the 116 golfers who supported the Youth Challenge 2016 Golf Outing on August 15 at Avon Oaks Country Club. Nearly $20,000 was raised to directly help fund Youth Challenge programs. These funds will allow the YC participants and volunteers to enjoy free year-round adapted sports like golf, tennis, soccer and so much more.
