The Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center is looking for sponsors for the area’s oldest Golf Tournament and Silent Auction

Burnet, Blanco, Llano and Lampasas: Don’t miss out on supporting the Highland Lakes Crisis Center in their Annual Golf Tournament and Silent Auction coming up October 25, 2014 at the Delaware Springs Golf Course in Burnet. The purpose of this benefit tournament is to raise funds in order to continue services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Llano, Burnet, Blanco, and Lampasas counties.

“We are seeking sponsors, donors, and underwriters,” said Phillip Lee, Golf Tournament Director. “This fundraiser is the largest the Crisis Center hosts to raise awareness and support local families in need.”

The Golf Tournament has four levels of sponsorship: Platinum, which is a donation of $1,500 and allows for 8 golfers; Gold, which is a donation of $1,000 and allows for 4 golfers; Silver, which is a donation of $500 and allows for 2 golfers; and Bronze, which is a donation of $250 and allows for 1 golfer. Each sponsor will receive recognition on golf course signage and in the local media during and after the tournament.

A few local businesses have become sponsors so far including The Business Center, Johnson Sewell Ford Lincoln, and Blanco Auto Parts. Additional individual sponsorships include John and Barbara Racz, Brett and Eva Ballard, and Ken and Jean Anderson.

On average the Crisis Center provides free and confidential services to 350 individuals a month, including children, women, and men. Last year, 590 adults received services and over 620 children received services in Blanco, Llano, Burnet, and Lampasas counties. The Crisis Center also answered over 2,000 crisis calls from men, women, and children needing help in 2013.

“We have relied on the community’s support to help local families in need, especially children,” said Alma Lahmon, Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center Executive Director. “By becoming a sponsor or donor for our golf tournament you partner with us in creating safer local communities and support our mission to end domestic and sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking.”

The entry fee is $65 a player, which includes greens fee, cart, refreshments, and hamburger dinner. The deadline to register is October 17, 2014 and is limited to the first 144 players. Golfers should expect fantastic raffles and door prizes this year, including a new car for a Hole In One prize. The silent auction will also have great items from local merchants in which participants can bid. For more information please call (830) 693-3656 and ask for the golf coordinator.
