Spectacular Finish to "Hope Fore Kids" Golf Outing Benefits Children Programs
On a beautiful early September morning, 34 foursomes gathered at the Glen Club in Glenview for 18 holes of spectacular golf to benefit The Salvation Army children’s programs. Several foursomes at this year’s “Hope Fore Kids” event finished with impressive combined scores, but it was the children that the Army serves who were the real winners. The event raised more than $218,000 for after-school tutoring, sports, recreation, music, arts and character-building programs or teen drop-in centers. No matter a child’s interest or talent he or she can explore them through these programs in our corps community centers provide children a safe place after the school bell rings. During the summer, nearly 1,000 children attend our Wonderland Camp in Wisconsin.
