2nd Annual Joe Lang Foundation Golf Tournament

2nd Annual Joe Lang Foundation Golf Tournament

We are hosting the 2nd Annual Joe Lang Foundation Golf tournament. This year the proceeds will benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs. Please read below, you will know why we are choosing the Boys and Girls Clubs.

We have had the opportunity to visit the Boys and Girls Clubs during hours of operation several times; the smiles on the kid’s faces say it all. The services provided by the Clubs are exceptional, other than a safe place to play before and after school, they provide so much more. The staff and counselors provide a stable, secure environment for all of the kids. They assist the kids with their school work, and through mentoring they taught social and communication skills. The clubs too have needs, too many kids not enough counselors.
