Eighteen holes, one hundred golfers three hundred tees, and thousands in donations is what gives kids each year the opportunity to go to camp. Teen Ranch’s Charity Golf Classic, in it’s 22nd year, is a highlight for staff and donors alike. Everyone gets together to make it possible for kids to go to camp.
This year on Monday, September 12 Ranch friends and family will tee off at Caledon Golf club for the annual event. Tee off is at 8 AM and the tournament runs as a ‘best ball’ competition. After the game all golfers and sponsors gather at the Teen Ranch Dining room for a meal and an auction. Prizes are donated from local businesses and other sponsors; last years prizes included passes to the Hockey Hall of Fame and a VIA Rail trip.
The 2010 tournament sponsored 35 campers to attend Teen Ranch’s summer week-long residential camp. These campers are from right here in Orangeville all the way to Harlem NY. During summer camp they develop skills in soccer, hockey, horse riding or extreme sports, are able to meet new friends and grown mentally, physically and socially.
Emma, a young camper here week two says, “Teen Ranch is an amazing opportunity for an adventure. I absolutely love it here. Teen Ranch is Heaven on Earth!!” Kayla, from week 4, had a similar experience, “It was my first time at teen ranch and I had such a good experience! I wouldn’t change anything!”
At Teen Ranch we feel so privileged to be able to build into the lives of kids.
Help us make it happen by golfing with us on the 12th, by sponsoring the tournament or donating prizes. For more information please contact Shannon at 519 941 4501 ext 299 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
