Raising Green on the Green!

Posted by on Jul 14, 2014 in Stories from The Patch

When is the last time you enjoyed an exclusive opportunity while supporting a great cause? The Cabbage Patch 2014 Annual Invitational Golf tournament gave golfers a chance to play the renowned Valhalla Golf Club in the last event on site before the PGA Championship! We raised approximately $70,000 for Educational Opportunities and Recreation/Youth Development programs at The Patch.

If you participated in the tournament, you helped young people like Jovan achieve success. Jovan’s family didn’t want him to go to college-they expected him to take over the family business. His expectations for his life had been made for him. The first time he came to The Cabbage Patch was the first time he was told that college was a goal within reach! After going through ACT preparation and visiting college campuses with The Patch, he earned a scholarship and will be attending the University of Kentucky in the fall!

We are so grateful to have the support that enables us to profoundly change 1,000 to 1,200 lives annually!
