The 5th Annual Here's Life Inner City Golf Tournament, sponsored by comCables, was held Thursday morning, June 7th at the beautiful Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood. The largest fundraiser of the year for Here's Life Inner City Denver raised over $29,235, $5,000 more than last year's event.
There were 24 foursomes competing in this year's event. The first tournament, by comparison, had only 37 players and raised only $7,000. This money raised will be given directly to the churches and families who need help and are part of the HLIC program.
Even though the winds were gusting to over 60 miles per hour for most of the day, after a continental breakfast and a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start, everyone had fun during the scramble format tournament. During a scramble format tournament, each player hits his/her tee shot. The team then selects the best shot. All players may move the ball within 1 club length of the selected shot (only exception is when on the green) and hit their second shot from there.
There were 4 contest holes: closest to pin (winner: Dan McLain), longest drive for men (winner: Jared Burton), longest drive for women (winner: Joyce Browning) and longest putt (winner: Kathleen Albert). Each foursome was provided a very nice backpack that was given to the winner of the foursome. The awards were presented at the end during a luncheon banquet.
Here's Life Inner City Denver is a Colorado non-profit 501(c)3 organization serving and equipping urban churches to reach the poorest neighborhoods in Denver. It is part of a national chain of inner city programs. In 1983, Dr. Bill Bright saw that Campus Crusade was not effectively serving America’s inner cities. After researching and asking church leaders, they found urban churches did not need any more new programs, but help and support with their existing outreaches. This led to a new, indirect ministry, focused on serving and equipping inner city churches to reach their neighborhoods more effectively. By focusing on children, youth and young adults, HLIC believes they can help urban churches make a long-lasting impact. The founders of HLIC believe that they can make a difference among the youth, they will change the future of Denver.
