Sponsors are needed for the largest fundraiser for the Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center
Burnet, Blanco, Llano and Lampasas: The Highland Lakes Crisis Center is still seeking sponsors and golfers for the upcoming 29th Annual Golf Tournament and Silent Auction, Saturday, Oct. 27, at 1p.m. at the Delaware Springs Golf Course in Burnet.
The funds raised by the golf tournament and silent auction enable the continuation of support services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Llano, Burnet, Blanco, and Lampasas counties.
Along with a lower entry fee, which includes greens fee, cart, refreshments, and a hamburger dinner, players should expect excellent raffles and door prizes. The deadline to register is Oct. 12.
Golfers may also play under any of the four levels of sponsorships, which are as follows: Platinum, which is a donation of $1,500, allows for 8 golfers; Gold, which is a donation of $1,000, allows for 4 golfers; Silver, which is a donation of $500, allows for 2 golfers; and Bronze, which is a donation of $250, allows for 1 golfer.
“Donations have been low this year due to the economy,” said Alma Lahmon, Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center Executive Director. “Making the sponsorships and donations given to this golf tournament and silent auction vital to the continuation of emergency services to victims of family and sexual violence.”
The Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center provides 24 hours of emergency services and serves as a safe haven for victims of family violence and sexual abuse. On average the Crisis Center staff provides 500 face to face services each month and almost 2,000 people each year call the hotline seeking help.
