December – Golf Wishes & Dreams
EWGA Central Oregon keeps golf going year-round! USGA Rules state that posting of golf scores in Oregon is suspended from November through March. Though we can’t post, we’ll still be teeing off on Saturday mornings in January, February and March. If its just too chilly for you, no problem, just join us for 9 holes of Indoor Golf on Sunday evenings December through March. This is the perfect opportunity to practice with the clubs that give you grief and learn more about your swing and distance. Each week the simulator is set to a different course to challenge you and keep friendships alive. Mark your calendar for Sunday and Saturday golf and RSVP on our website at www.ewgaco.com.
Our chapter chose the PGA Junior League in Central Oregon for our 2017 charity. PGA Junior League Golf offers boys and girls – ages 13 and under of all abilities – a fun, social and inclusive opportunity to learn and play golf in a recreational team setting with their friends, complete with numbered jerseys.
In April we set to a goal to raise $500 for girls in Central Oregon whose families demonstrated financial need. Funds provided would help families offset the cost for the season. Our members have embraced this charity and we exceeded our original goal. To-date, we have raised $935! Please consider helping us reach $1000 so that more girls can learn and play the game of golf. You can make your tax-deductible donation at the Holiday Party and have your name entered for a drawing of a gift-card donated by Indoor Golf.
The holidays often are a time for reflection and giving to those in need. Beulah’s Place is a non-profit organization that provides shelter services to at-risk homeless teens in Central Oregon. Based in Redmond, Beulah’s Place reaches out to youth who have been discarded, abandoned, neglected, abused. These young people are targeted by criminal predators. Beulah’s Place provides food, shelter, clothing, transportation to school and jobs, medical/dental assistance, document recovery and educational support. They rely solely on the generosity and donations from the community. In the spirit of giving and fulfilling the Christmas wish list for the young women at Beulah’s place, a Fred Meyer gift card, in a denomination of your choice, will be gladly accepted at the Holiday Party December 7.
