On Saturday, October 7th, SAFE will kick off their 9th annual Llama Rama Charity Golf Classic at Sherwood Forest Golf Club. The tournament will begin with registration at 8 am with a shotgun start at 9 am. After a great round of golf, players and sponsors will be treated to a luncheon with recognition for both players and sponsors. Prizes will be provided for the best Men's, Women's and Mixed teams.

The entry fee is $300 for a team of four, or $75 per player. Entry forms are available here. Call the SAFE office at 828-885-7233 or email info@safetransylvania.org if you have questions.

The proceeds for the tournament will support SAFE's work to end domestic and sexual violence and education programs in the schools promoting healthy relationships and SAFE Dating Practices. Our strategic plan includes increasing services in the county and we need support to make that happen!

We are also looking for sponsors. This is great opportunity to reach the community while supporting SAFE's work. Sponsorship opportunities start at $50 for an ad in the program and include $100, $500, $1,000 levels for hole and event sponsorships. Each level has its own package of recognition and involvement. Call Salley at SAFE for more information.

And we need lots of volunteers to help with the planning and on the day of the event. Imagine spending a spring day at this beautiful venue! Want to be part of the action? We can hook you up. Email Randi at randi@safetransylvania.org. Come celebrate the difference we make in this community!
