In 1993, a small group of Harbor Hills women were determined to make a difference by sponsoring a golf tournament to raise funds for local charities. Since those promising moments, the intention of this caring group has never changed. Though many years have gone by, the Annual Holiday Golf Tournament continues to be the Charity’s premier fundraising event. This year, the December 1 event will feature a scramble format with putting contests, raffle baskets, a silent auction and dinner.
The Harbor Hills Ladies Charity is a 501 (C) (3) charity. President Sue Rice explains that the Charity has no overhead. All money raised goes directly to organizations in our community. Dr. Robin Meyers is the principal of Lake Hills School, a local special-needs school for 220 students. “We are so grateful to have the support of the Harbor Hills Ladies Charity. The donations have significantly helped fund the purchase of expensive adaptive equipment essential for our special-needs students.”
Lake Hills School was just one of the many recipients of the $32,000 raised last season by the hard work and dedication of the ladies of the Harbor Hills Charity. Others included the Christian Food Pantry, Fruitland Park Elementary, Community Medical Care Center, The Villages Elementary School and The Haven.
The Charity will host the annual Ladies Brunch October 28 to welcome members. All Harbor Hills residents, new and returning, are invited. Upcoming events and volunteer opportunities will be announced. Residents may contact Judy Monin (email@example.com) or Cheryl McBride (firstname.lastname@example.org) to attend the October brunch.
Community members and guests who wish to participate, volunteer or donate to the Annual Holiday Golf Tournament can contact Chairperson Lin McLeod (email@example.com). The Harbor Hills Ladies Charity welcomes you!
