Windermere Golf Club was extra busy yesterday. Golfers were challenging each others skills on the course with hole-in-ones and by donating money.
All of the money raised at the golf tournament went to Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter.
“This event is great for the kids…hopefully we will raise a lot of money and help them in a great fiscal 2017,” said golfer/donator, Brad Pulaski.
Palmetto Place Children’s Shelter is a home for children who have been abused or neglected.
“All of our kids live with us…we are 24/7. We are open every single day of the year. We celebrate birthdays…they celebrate holidays with us…we really become family for them,” said Executive Director, Erin Hall.
The funding for the shelter is provided by sponsors and fundraisers, like the golf tournament.
Palmetto Place is unique because it is the only shelter in the Midlands that opens its doors to homeless youth.
The shelter welcomes volunteers to tutor, play, and simply be there for the children.
