The nearly 300 golfers who recently teed off during the annual Upbring Golf Austin and Houston tournaments were playing for more than birdies, pars and hole-in-ones. For these athletes, a few hours on the course offered a powerful way to change a child’s life.
The events raised a combined $113,000 for Upbring Foster In Texas (FIT), BeREAL, Krause Children’s Center and New Life Children’s Center.
“I was walking through the dormitories the other day,
and I saw a girl who had a huge smile on her face,” Jacob Huereca, New Life executive director, said.
“I know about her traumatic past and everything she’s working to overcome. It was so inspirational to see her happy, and it spoke volumes about the life-giving work we can do at New Life because of our generous friends.”
Because of you, the Upbring services supported by our annual golf fundraisers generate hundreds of inspirational stories every year. Here are just two examples from Foster In Texas and our BeREAL program.
Photos Matter, Too
From the longest drive to closest to the pin to the winning score card, our photographer was on the scene in Houston and Austin, capturing all the action and accolades. Relive the fun by visiting the Upbring Golf Austin and Upbring Golf Houston photo albums.
There’s Still Time To Tee It Up Fore Children
If the opportunity to help a child build a brighter future while doing something you love sounds good, join us for Upbring Golf San Antonio, the last of our 2017 golf fundraisers. The event will take place on October 23, 2017, at Fair Oaks Ranch Golf Club.
Thank you for your generous support and prayers for the children, families and communities we serve together. We hope to see you in San Antonio!
