Golf For Good: Local Tournament Raises Funds & Awareness | Events
According to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, every 14 minutes someone in the United States commits suicide.
Help raise awareness to this growing issue, and reach out to those affected by suicide at The AFSP National Capital Chapter 's Second Annual Charity Golf Tournament on May 23rd.
Last year, the organization was able to raise $18,000, which benefitted the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and their dedication to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy programs.
The 18-hole golf tournament is located at one of the area’s nicest courses at Andrews Airforce Base in Md., and features a fully catered barbeque lunch and refreshments.
The tournament also incorporates contests and prizes including restaurant gift certificates, and paid vacations to Chicago, Florida, and San Francisco, as well as trophies for winning foursomes.
“In the time it takes us to complete our Golf Tournament, 20 more American’s lives will have been lost. It is through events such as this Golf Tournament that AFSP is able to not only raise much needed funds, but, more importantly, we are able to raise awareness in the community about mental illness and suicide prevention,” explained AFSP's Maureen Iselin.
Individual golfers and foursomes are needed, and every donation helps in prevention.
