GREENVILLE – June 25 will be the date as Youth for Christ of the Miami Valley holds its 22nd annual Golf Classic at the White Springs Golf Club. YFC’s annual golf classic is always a popular day with local golfers and an important part of furthering the ministry of Youth for Christ.
One of the reasons YFC’s tournament is so well liked is because of the delicious food that is served throughout the day. That experience is enhanced even more for those who choose to participate in a “Gold Class Upgrade.” By contributing or raising double the registration fee for the event, “Gold Class” players receive additional benefits such as steak sandwiches, complimentary golf shirt, and chair massage. These “Gold Class” amenities will continue to be revealed throughout the day, adding an extra measure of fun to the event and increasing the amount of money raised for Youth for Christ programs.
Another reason people enjoy YFC’s Golf Classic is because of the many prizes that are available. Golfers are encouraged to solicit pledges rather than “paying to play” to more greatly benefit Youth for Christ. Some still choose to simply pay their own registration, but wonderful prizes await those who are successful in raising the most money. This year’s top four fundraisers will choose between a golf trip at Deer Creek State Park Resort, two quality golf clubs, a $100 Ace gift card, or a $100 sporting goods gift card. These awards are in addition to the many door prizes that everyone is eligible to win.
Last year’s Youth for Christ Golf Classic yielded more than $22,200 to benefit YFC’s ministry to young people. In addition to what was raised by the golfers, a significant portion of this income came from local businesses and individuals who sponsored holes, carts, and the grand prizes. Some businesses chose to go even beyond these levels with their support. These sponsorships are for those that want to more significantly support YFC and they will receive more significant advertising in return. This year, the goal is to raise even more than last year to benefit teenagers, which means new sponsors and golfers are being sought.
YFC primarily reaches out to teens that aren’t already involved in the Christian community, helping them to discover lives of integrity and hope through personal relationships with Jesus Christ. YFC’s Annual Golf Classic is an important part of helping make sure that these programs continue and grow.
