"At comCables, we believe in giving back to the communities we serve, not just taking from it." --Greg Greenwood, CEO, commenting on why they coordinate the fundraising golf tournament for Here's Life Inner City Denver.
Fox Hollow at Lakewood Golf course hosted the tournament for 26 foursomes that had a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start on June 19. The Den at Fox Hollow served lots of coffee along with mini-cinnamon rolls and juices for the sunrise registration. "We believe in HLIC’s efforts because we have a heart for the poor, especially inner-city youth. We have witnessed the difference they have made in the lives of youth through their partnership with inner-city churches," said Greenwood.
HLIC provides both practical skills and spiritual encouragement. They truly represent a lifelong, selfless pursuit to empower human lives that have the deck stacked against them. For this, comCables believes whole-heartedly in their day to day efforts and they want to continue to assist them with their financial needs and with encouragement so they can continue delivering this enormous need in our community. In a nutshell, comCables provides no less than 10% of its annual net income to Denver ministries, charities and sponsorships. HLIC is their pet ministry. They receive 80%+ of their contributions, which amounts to $50,000+ annually.
The tournament raised $33,000 that went directly to support the programs at HLIC such as:
· S.A.Y. Yes! After School Program: This afterschool program is run by local inner city churches through the support of Here’s Life Inner City. There are three main components to the program; educational and spiritual development, and life skills training.
· Summer in the City Project: This is a month long program designed for college students who want to spend some of their summer serving youth in the inner city. They come from all parts of the country, live together, serve together and receiving training in many aspects of inner city ministry.
“Salt” Wall, founder of HLIC, emceed the awards luncheon, catered by The Den at Fox Hollow, where he announced the tournament contest winners for the day.
