2018 Golf Challenge

Our 2018 YES Golf Challenge will be held at Nashville Golf and Athletic Club on  Monday, April 30th. Each golfer will enjoy a fabulous day on the course! We’ll start with registration and lunch from Jim ‘N Nicks Barbecue at 11:00, followed by a shotgun start at 12:30pm.

This event is extremely important to YES and the children that we serve…and it’s a lot of fun! This year, our goal is to have 20 teams raise a total of over $100,000. We appreciate your support and/or participation with this event in the past! We can meet our goal with your help!

As you may know, our Golf Challenge format is very different than other tournaments. We ask our players to assist us in making this a successful event. All you have to do is express interest or serve as a Team Captain.

So you may be asking, “What kind of commitment does that really mean?” Well, it’s easy, really.

As a Friend of YES, we ask that you consider serving as a Team Captain. Then, you rally three others to play with you and you are ready to start raising funds for the YES Golf Challenge. We even provide you with all of the materials necessary to be successful! You, and those that are part of your team, are then asked to send one of our fundraising letters and/or e-mails to 50 people (friends, co-workers, classmates, business associates, family members, etc.) with a goal of raising $1,250 each.

“What if I do not play golf?” You can still serve as a Team Captain! You can find four people interested in playing and ask that each of those four players help you towards or beyond your goal.

Would you be willing to captain a team this year? Do you know of anyone else that might be interested? If so, please call us at (615) 315-5333 or send an email to golf@youthencouragement.org to let us know that you want to be a Team Captain or participate, volunteer or sponsor this year’s YES Golf Challenge.

What it means to the children of YES

  • Every $100 raised will sponsor a child to our summer camp.
  • Every $600 sponsors a child in our after-school program for the school year.
  • Every $2000 keeps one of our centers open for an entire week serving 70 children.

YES provides tutoring and homework help, computer labs and scholarships, physical recreation and a safe place off the streets. YES encourages spiritual growth and teaches children the love of God. YES helps children succeed in school, in life, and in faith!

So…Mark your calendars:
