Event Details

Swing Fore A Child’s Place Golf Tournament

April 16, 2018 - 1 p.m. Tee Off
The Peninsula Club
Cornelius, NC

Please join us for the seventh annual Swing Fore A Child’s Place Golf Tournament on Monday, April 16 at The Peninsula Club in Cornelius, NC. Enjoy a fabulous day of golf, food and prizes while helping impact the lives of homeless children attending Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools 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 at 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 in Mecklenburg County schools. 

In Mecklenburg County, more than 4,000 children are homeless. Imagine trying to complete homework in a noisy and crowded shelter, or sleeping in your car the night before a big test. For more than 4,000 children in our community, that is reality. The instability of not having a permanent home often causes these children to fall two to three grades behind their peers, and they are more likely to be chronically absent from school. A Child’s Place intervenes at the family’s point of crisis, helping stabilize the family and addressing needs to help the children succeed in the classroom. As chronic absenteeism often leads to future academic failure, A Child’s Place is focused on removing barriers that prevent students from attending school. That focus has resulted in nearly half of students served by A Child’s Place improving or maintaining their attendance rates over the prior year. A Child’s Place also works closely with the families of our students, connecting parents with critical resources to move them from homelessness to stability.
