The ultimate goal for the evening is to have a memorable time as we raise money for these 3 fantastic charities:
Augie’s Quest: The purpose of Augie’s Quest is to fund research and drug development aimed at ending ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease. Since 2007, Augie’s Quest has raised nearly $40 million in support of finding effective ALS treatments.
Employee Partner Care Foundation: E.P.C.F. assists those people you connect with when you visit the club and is available to all club and home office Employee Partners in ClubCorp. The Foundation helps those individuals in the midst of crisis such as home loss, death, illness, as well as domestic situations.
D.C. Central Kitchen: As the nation’s first and leading community kitchen, DC Central Kitchen develops and operates social ventures targeting the cycle of hunger and poverty. They fight hunger differently by training jobless adults for culinary careers and then hiring dozens of their own graduates to prepare the 3 million meals they provide for homeless shelters, schools, and nonprofits each year. Their ventures also prevent the waste of millions of pounds of nutritious food, expand access to healthy, local options in urban food deserts, and scale their model nationally through strategic partnerships with colleges and universities.
Bring your appetite and get ready for an exciting and meaningful night at the Tower Club!
