On Monday, June 14, 2021, White’s Residential and Family Services hosted the 11th Annual “Teeing Up for Teens” Golf Outing at Etna Acres in Andrews, Indiana. This was the largest outing to date with 80 golfers participating. The purpose of the event was to raise funds to renovate a blacktop basketball court used by residential students into a more durable sport court that will be safer, require less maintenance, and last longer. The event exceeded its goal of raising $19,000, covering the cost of the renovation.
Several students from White’s RFS residential treatment program participated in the event by passing out water to players to keep them hydrated throughout the morning. In addition to having students on the golf course, Chuck Gaither, former White’s RFS Athletic Director and Track Coach, and Elix Brewer, member of the White’s RFS 1973 IHSAA State Finals Mile Relay championship team, were also present.
“What a huge blessing this event has been for White’s RFS,” said Dana Brady, Director of Donor Relations. “We were thrilled to have our biggest turnout yet. White’s RFS is so very grateful for the support, in action as well as gifts, provided by our community, in Wabash and surrounding areas.”
