Grab your clubs and join us for the 7th Annual Jim Young Memorial Golf Tournament Monday, May 21, 2018, at the Carlisle Country Club, Carlisle, Pa.

These kids - many who are the victims of abuse and neglect - deal with a multitude of difficult situations. Your generous support provides a safe haven for young people who need specialized care and guidance to overcome educational and skill deficits, and disorders (such as PTSD) that make growing up more difficult.

  •     Registration opens at 11:30 a.m. with an extensive lunch buffet before teeing-off.
