The 23rd Annual Peninsula Golf Challenge

After months of tireless organizing, planning, gathering, boxing, and preparing, Friends for Youth hosted the 23rd Annual Peninsula Golf Challenge at Sharon Heights Golf Course on Monday, October 4th.

Over 100 golfers showed up to support Friends for Youth. More than 15 volunteers assisted in the day's festivities. And although the day started cold and cloudy, by early afternoon the sun had come out to stay.

As in years past, the charity tournament was hosted by Hooked on Golf's Mitch Juricich. Mitch oversaw favorite activities like the Deck of Cards Raffle, the Live Auction and individual pledges. Separately, four volunteer Friendships did their own bit of fund-raising for Friends for Youth, selling prize balloons to the golfing guests. This is a perennial favorite, since each customer must to pop his or her balloon to discover the prize inside!

After a steak dinner, silent and live auctions, speeches by Junior Friends and Executive Director Becky Cooper, and final golf tournament prizes, the daylong festivities came to a successful end. Now we all just have to wait for next year!
