Golf for a Good Cause
Semiahmoo Rotary Charity Golf Tournament
For the first time, funds raised will go to support
Sources' Dolly Parton Imagination Library
literacy program for children.
The local affiliate is operated by Sources Volunteer Services and currently serves 251 children in Surrey and White Rock.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
Every month, children registered in the program receive a free, home-delivered, brand new book from birth until they turn 5 years old. The program aims to increase childhood literacy and reading skills. Although this is a "library," the child gets to keep the books!
WHAT OUR STAFF SAY
"Every child receives the same books to read so they can be ready at the same level when they enter kindergarten. The cost per child is $3.55 per month. A $25,000 donation could provide a monthly book for five years for an additional 100 children on our waiting list."
-- Carrie Belanger, Manager of Volunteer Services
We encourage you or your friends to come out and golf for a good course! You can register to play as an individual or as a team of four if you wish.
