Golf’n for the RED – Third Annual Golf Outting to Benefit Rockford, Illinois Area Homeless

Golf Course

On Tuesday, August 19, 2008 Title Underwriters, Bachrodt on State and Contry Homes presents the 3rd Annual Play Day in support of the Nancy J. Smith Homeless Shelter.

Located at Timber Pointe Golf Club in Poplar Grove, the Golf’n for the RED play day registration will begin at 11:00 a.m. with Shotgun Start at 12:30. In addition to an afternoon of golf, guests will enjoy prizes, contests, dinner and loads of fun including the chance to win a brand new car through a Hole-in-One Contest! Early Birds register by July 19 to be eligible.

The Rock River Chapter of the American Red Cross began serving the homeless of Rockford in 1988. The 48 bed facility provides guests with overnight shelter when they have nowhere else to go each night of the year. The shelter is available 12 hours every evening and accepts men, women and families. Guests find assistance through case management sessions that evaluate the individual needs as a whole, rather than just fulfilling their immediate need for housing. Through case management, clients are linked with available services to regain confidence and skills needed to maintain self-sufficiency.
