Tabitha (Tabitha.org), Nebraska’s industry-leading senior care provider, and Lincoln’s Gateway Sertoma Club invited local businesses and community leaders to NuMark Golf Course for the 21st Annual Gateway Sertoma Golf Event – a day of golfing for good to benefit Lincoln’s lifeline meal delivery program, Tabitha Meals on Wheels.
This year’s event raised a total of over $87,000, equal to about 11,600 meals. These proceeds benefit meal recipients in the Lincoln area, eighty-one percent of which cannot afford the price of their meal, yet ninety percent say the meal allows them to continue living independently in the comfort of their own home.
“Older adults, now more than ever, are counting on us,” said Tabitha President and CEO Christie Hinrichs. “It’s a true blessing to see the outpouring of support at the Gateway Sertoma Golf Event year after year. Tabitha is grateful for everyone who joined us today, knowing the importance of the services that Tabitha Meals on Wheels continues to provide to the most vulnerable. Thank you to the businesses, community members and leaders who gathered for a cause, donated their time and treasure and fulfilled Tabitha’s PURPOSE: empowering people to live joyfully, age gratefully.”
