Swing Fore A Child’s Place Golf Tournament

Northstone Country Club
Please join us for the fifth annual Swing Fore A Child’s Place Golf Tournament on Monday, May 1st at Northstone Country Club in Huntersville. Enjoy a fabulous day of golf, food and prizes while helping impact the lives of homeless children attending Walter G. Byers Academy in Charlotte, NC.
Tee-off time is 1 p.m. All registered players will receive a buffet lunch before tee-off and heavy hors d’oeuvres following golf. Also, participate in a raffle for prizes such as tickets to a Duke basketball game with exclusive all-access (behind the scenes) tour of Cameron Indoor Stadium and more to be announced during the event. All proceeds raised will go to A Child’s Place to help support the needs of homeless children attending Walter G. Byers Academy.
Walter G. Byers Academy is a Pre-K through 8th grade school with one of the highest numbers of homeless children in Charlotte. This year, 130 students there were identified as homeless. The instability of not having a home often leads these children to fall behind academically and presents challenges with attendance and behavior.
Thankfully, A Child’s Place is there. Through the A Child’s Place STAR Initiative, a full-time social worker and student advocate are on-site at Walter G. Byers Academy every day, as well as many other Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools.
The student advocate monitors the child’s attendance, academic performance and behavior, working with teachers and staff to meet the student’s emotional and social needs and improve academic focus. The social worker partners with the families to help resolve immediate needs, such as housing, medical issues, job preparedness and more.
Much more than just backpacks and school supplies, A Child’s Place provides hope, stability and support crucial to erasing the impact of homelessness on a child’s education.
