Nashville, TN Miriam's Promise, a pregnancy, parenting and adoption counseling center serving Middle Tennessee, recently announced that their 13th annual golf challenge will take place on September 24, 2012, at Forrest Crossing Golf Course in Franklin, with registration beginning at 8 a.m.
"The unique thing about this particular golf event is the way that we raise funds," said event chair Beth Morris. "The golfers don't actually pay to play. Instead, they raise funds by partnering with friends, business contacts and church members. The day of golf is actually our big thank you to those who have taken the time to invite others to be in mission with us."
An added benefit for fund-raisers is the addition of a personalized web page for each participant. With this tool, golfers and volunteers can share their personal story, add pictures and watch their progress as they reach their fund-raising goals.
If you are interested in participating in the challenge, you may register online at www.miriamspromise.org or contact the agency directly at 615-292-3500.
