Since opening on February 1, 1999, the Broward Partnership served over 21,000 homeless individuals and families, by providing short-term housing, and it has been held as a model program for its comprehensive array of solution-focused services that aim to reduce and prevent homelessness. The agency won best practices awards from the Florida Department of Children & Families and the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, which also recognized the Partnership as one of the 400 best projects in the nation serving the homeless.
On Friday, September 18, the Broward Partnership's 7th Annual Golf Challenge will take place at the prestigious Fort Lauderdale Country Club.
The annual golf event raised almost $500,000 over the past six years to support the Partnership’s mission of helping homeless individuals and families back on the road to health, employment and housing. We hope you'll consider joining us for this fun and unique event -- or possibly even make a donation and sponsor one of our many golfers.
This year you or your company can participate in several different ways:
Corporate Golf Challenge: Your company pledges to raise a minimum of $5,000 to participate, which includes a golf foursome at the actual event. We will set up a customized website with your company logo and information through which you can manage and track fundraising progress - or you could choose to set up the page yourself.
Individual Golf Challenge: Individual golfers commit to raising $2,000 to participate and play golf at the event. Individual golfers will also receive a personalized fundraising website (you can easily build or -- or we will help) and to share with friends, family, neighbors and business associates. A grand prize awarded to the individual who raises the most funds. We can set up your fundraising page or choose to work on it yourself. It's incredibly simple and fun! Once your fundraising page is complete, you or your team can then simply email the link or share your personal/group fundraiser via social media and ask your personal and professional network to support you in this worthwhile endeavor by making an online tax-deductible donation. The company that raises the most funds will win the Corporate Golf Challenge Grand Prize!
Virtual Golf Challenge: Companies or individuals who are not golfers or not available to play, can still participate as “virtual golfers”, with no minimum pledge amount required. Virtual golfers will also receive a customized fundraising website (created by you -- or us) to email to your contacts, with prizes awarded to the company and the individual who raises the most funds through the virtual challenge.
Participation in the Broward Partnership’s 7th Annual Golf Challenge will have an incredible impact in enabling the Partnership to help homeless individuals and families in our community achieve self-sufficiency and rebuild their lives.
