Golf Tourney to support the kids - Borrego Springs Golf Classic, Friday, Feb. 26, starting at 12:00 noon at Borrego Springs Resort

Golf Classic, in support of The Boys & Girls Club.

These programs are changing lives, especially for underprivileged students, of which there are a large number in Borrego Springs. Our Boys & Girls Club keeps children busy in healthy activities during the hours of 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. when many parents are at work and there is no adult at home. The Club depends mightily on community support to keep the lights on and the doors open. Talking to folks recently I have learned that many didn’t know about the Club. It’s a beautiful facility, big and bright and clean. It has very nice indoor and outdoor facilities including a world-class skate park donated by Borrego benefactor Dennis Avery. It’s located on Cahuilla Road, near the middle and high schools and the Senior Center. This year, I am the co-chair with Martha Deichler of the Borrego Springs Golf Classic, the sole fundraiser for the Borrego Springs Boys & Girls Club. Our event will be I’ve heard it said that it takes a village to raise a child. I believe that is true. A village is a family and together they take care of their own. Borrego Springs is such a village. We take care of our own. The Boys & Girls Club is the only agency in Borrego, outside of the schools, that offers afterschool recreation, social programs and homework help for our children. Martha Deichler, Principal and Superintendent of our schools, works hand-in-hand with the Club including transporting elementary held Friday, Feb. 26 at Borrego Springs Resort.

Golfers pay $250 per person or $1000 per foursome, for which they receive a lot of value! Each golfer receives a gourmet lunch, a tee package including a very nice windbreaker with the B&G logo on the sleeve and other prizes, as well as a gala prime rib dinner. Not a golfer? Come enjoy the prime rib feast with beverages included for only $50. Merchants, will you consider donating something such as certificates for wine, meals, lodging, golf apparel or a game of golf that can be raffled or auctioned for the Boys & Girls Club of Borrego Springs? All funds raised stay right here in Borrego to directly aid our kids. Borregans and seasonal visitors,
