Proceeds from 1st MidAmerica Credit Union’s seventh annual Charity Golf Outing Thursday, Sept. 4, at Spencer T. Olin Golf Club will benefit the Madison County Child Advocacy Center.
The credit union has raised more than $70,000 for local charities through the annual golf event over the past several years. Many sponsorship levels are available and golfers of all skill levels are welcome and invited to participate. Foursomes are $300 a team or $75 for individual players. Registration fees include mulligans, skins, 18 holes of golf and fun, lunch, dinner, beverages on the course, and a free round of golf for later use. Reservations are required and space is limited.
The Madison County Child Advocacy Center (CAC) provides professional intervention and supportive services to fight child abuse. Most importantly, the CAC provides a safe haven for children to talk about the physical or sexual abuse they may have experienced and to help in limiting the number of times a child has to be interviewed. Before the CAC opened, a child who was a victim or witnessed a violent crime would often be interviewed by eight to 12 people before the case went to trial. Because of the CAC, abused children no longer have to endure such a strenuous interviewing process and authorities are better able to prosecute abuse cases. Fund-raising dollars are essential to the Child Advocacy Center because all services provided are free of charge.
