Realtors step up to help support Senior Center Home Delivered Meals program.
Player slots are still available for the Southland Regional Association of Realtors/ American Golf Foundation 22nd annual golf tournament Monday, June 9, at Vista Valencia Golf Course. The tournament is a fundraiser for the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center’s Home-Delivered Meals program and the deadline for reservations is Friday, May 30.
“We’re extremely grateful for the generosity of the tournament sponsors,” said Kathy Crone, director of development for the SCV Committee on Aging/Senior Center. “The timing of this fundraiser is especially important, because the Home-Delivered Meals program is facing some difficult times.”
The increase in demand for the Home-Delivered Meals program is outpacing its funding, and fuel and food costs are on the rise — so for the first time in the program’s 30-year history, Home-Delivered Meals faces the possibility of creating a waiting list. The Home-Delivered Meals program serves homebound seniors, and for some, it is the only hot meal they receive each day.
Golfers’ fees for the June 9 tournament are $100, which includes continental breakfast, green fee, carts, lunch, contests and prizes.
“This tournament is a fun way for golfers of all ability levels to help support our community’s seniors who so desperately need our help,” Crone said. “Regardless of whether you’re a scratch golfer or a beginner, you’ll have a good time playing in the Realtors’ tournament at Vista Valencia.”
Registration forms can be downloaded by visiting the SCV Senior Center Foundation’s website, www.scvseniorfoundation.org . Reservations can also be made by contacting Dawn Green-Zirbel of the SRAR at (661) 816-1218.
