In 2012, I became a supporter of Christian City Children’s Village, a residential program for abandoned and abused children, located near the Atlanta airport. Children live in family-style homes with full-time house parents. When I heard The Children’s Village was in need, I began a capital campaign effort to build a new cottage on their campus.
As a result of our fundraising efforts, a new crisis cottage was constructed to serve runaway and homeless teens and children in crisis. Did you know that 1 in 3 runaway kids are propositioned for sex trafficking in the first 48 hours after they leave home? Christian City coordinates volunteers who pick up these runaway kids and bring them to the Crisis Cottage we helped to build. To read about one child who was helped at the Children’s Village, click here. The Golf “Fore” Kids tournament continues to support these programs to help kids be reunited in a healthy home, to protect them from sex trafficking, and – for some – to give them the safest, most loving home-like environment they may ever know.
Please join me in supporting this event and the many kids who call Christian City “home” by registering to play or sponsoring the tournament.
In addition to playing or sponsoring the tournament, here are other ways to help:
1. Cash contributions
2. Announce the Golf Fore Kids Classic in your advertising and social media to invite your customers and friends to participate.
3. Present the needs of Christian City Children’s Village to your church or professional organization. Contact Ashley Bonner at 678.466.1093 for brochures or more information.
Please give serious consideration to what YOU can do. Working together, we can help to create life-changing hope for victims of child abuse and abandonment in metro Atlanta.
Thanks for your support!
