Join Hickory Dickory Decks at their 9th annual Charity Golf Classic. Every year Hickory Dickory Decks raises money for three awesome charities. The ALS Society, Sleeping Children Around the World and Youth Unlimited Youth Centre in Waterdown have been benefiting from your generosity since the tournament’s inaugural year in 2008. The 2015 tournament raised more than $36,000 and they look forward to having even more fun, raising even more money this year.
On June 23, Sleeping Children Around the World will once again be one of the three beneficiaries of the HDD golf classic. SCAW has made it possible for 1.4 million children in developing countries to get a good night’s sleep. SCAW is 100 percent nonprofit. They provide bed kits that cost $35 and include a mattress, pillow, sheet, blanket, mosquito net and school supplies. These kits are distributed throughout the world to children in need because getting a good night’s sleep shouldn’t be out of reach.
Close to the hearts of those at HDD is the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) society. This disease is a progressive motor neuron disease and is fatal. In Canada 2500-3000 people are presently living with ALS. 80 percent will die within 5 five years. Monies raised help to fund both research and assist the living in managing the disease. There is currently no treatment options available to prolong life and there is no cure for ALS. With your help, this can all change.
They knew if they built it, they would come. And they did, and they do and YFC/Youth Unlimited in Waterdown couldn’t be happier to finally have a youth centre right in the heart of Waterdown. The community did this. The community built this centre so that many teenagers from Flamborough could come daily to feel accepted and loved and safe. For over 60 years, beginning with Billy Graham in mid-’40′s, Youth for Christ has delivered programs focused on positive youth development. As a faith-based charity, YFC/Youth Unlimited exists to help young people strive to reach their full life potential. Running a facility like the one on Parkside Drive and Hamilton Street in Waterdown, costs money. Without any public funding, it is through the generous donations of the community and fundraisers like the HDD charity golf classic that enable the centre to keep it’s doors open.
This year’s HDD Charity Golf Classic takes place on Thursday, June 23rd. Check in is at 10am and tee-off is 11am at Flamborough Hills Golf Club located at Hwy#52, Copetown. The cost for entry, which includes green fees, cart rental and a steak dinner is $175 per person or $650 per full foursome.
