5th Annual Golf Outing

August 12th, 2017$100 per golfer

In the spring of 2011 when David was first diagnosed with cancer, family and friends rallied around him in efforts to lend financial support. David’s love for sports led loved ones to plan a golf fundraiser. The day was filled with competitive spirit, community, auctions, fellowship, raffles, fun, donations, and people gathering around a charismatic person who was in need of help. David’s Faith & Hope for Life Foundation strives to continue the tradition of holding an annual golf fundraiser to raise money for those in need of help.

On August 12th, 2013 David’s Faith & Hope for Life Foundation held their First Annual Golf Outing at Atlas Valley Country Club, 92 golfers were in attendance. Golfers participated in an 18 hole, four person scramble, on a beautiful private course.
