Ocean Breeze will once again be the main sponsor of the Fellowship Foundation Children’s
Drug Prevention Golf Classic. The golf event is a fun way for supporters to raise funds for drug prevention programs for youth.
The Golf Classic will take place Monday, April 28, at Parkland Golf and Country Club. Ocean Breeze staff will golf in the event, as well as participate in the awards luncheon ceremony. Participants will get to take part in exciting contests, and prizes will be awarded throughout the day.
Funds raised from the golf outing will go directly to programs that work to prevent drug and alcohol abuse among children. Last year, 75 golfers participated in the event, which raised $26,000 and benefitted groups such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Margate Police D.A.R.E. Program, and Margate/Coconut Creek Kiwanis Children’s Programs.
The Fellowship Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports prevention and treatment programs for children and adults. It has been established by Fellowship Living Facilities, Inc., a treatment facility in southern Florida. The Fellowship Foundation works to save the lives of children through its support of prevention programs.
In today’s society, where young people are constantly exposed to the temptation to use drugs and alcohol, prevention programs are vital. Teens and young adults need to be educated about the dangers of substance abuse, and they need to feel empowered to stand up for what they know is right. Statistics show that teens that abuse drugs and alcohol are more likely to become substance abusers as adults. It is important for our community to work together to support programs that are making a difference in the lives of youth, and that give them constructive activities and positive role models.
Ocean Breeze Recovery staff is looking forward to helping with the golf classic, and we want to see you there as well! More sponsors are needed, and golfers can still sign up to participate.
