June Golf Tournaments Raise Funds for Friendship Home
Every summer, families in crisis at Friendship Home (www.friendshiphome.org) are supported by two successful golf scrambles.
On June 10th, patients and friends of the Lincoln Orthopaedic Center (LOC) came together for the 10th Annual Ortho Open. An incredible $13,200 was raised during this year’s event. Over the course of ten years, LOC has donated over $91,000 to assist victims who are leaving abusive situations.
An additional $5,070 was raised at the Driving to Putt an End to Domestic Violence golf tournament on June 12th. This tournament is in its 9th year and is entirely organized by a small group of dedicated volunteers with full-time jobs. Golfers also donated around $800 in summer toys and school supplies for the children in Friendship Home shelters.
Many thanks to all golfers, volunteers and sponsors who participated in the two golf outings and whose generosity helped make them such a success.
