Our Summerfield Ladies Golf Club had their Charity Golf Tournament again this year. It was held on July 16, and all had fun. The tournament included Miracle Putts, which all of us need, goodies on one of the holes to keep us nourished, and our 9th Hole challenge was a great success.
But beyond all the fun, our little community gave with all their hearts, and we raised more than $9,000, and we will be presenting a check to The Caring Closet soon.
Unfortunately, we cannot have a party to celebrate, but I know The Caring Closet will be thrilled. For those who do not know about The Caring Closet, they help low-income students in the Tigard-Tualatin Schools District. They provide clothing, shoes, hygiene products and bedding items.
Students are referred by their school counselor and can come to The Caring Closet store, which is located on the Tigard High School campus. The number of students will be very high this year with people losing their jobs and our donation will help a large number of them.
The Caring Closet is near and dear to our hearts in Summerfield. They have been our charity for a few years now. They are local and we know what great work they do. We presented a check to Kim Thorne of the Caring Closet for $9,500.00 in August.
