Rockford Chamber Leadership teams with non-profit for golf event

Leadership Rockford and Children’s Home & Aid are teaming to help MotherHouse Crisis Nursery. Four members of Leadership Rockford, a program of the Rockford Chamber of Commerce, have selected Children’s Home & Aid as their charity of choice for which to help raise funds. And what better way than with a golf event to kick off the season?

The event, “Swing, Putt, Win One For the Kids,” will be Friday, May 11, at the Swanhills Golf Course, 2600 Gustafson Rd., Belvidere. This shotgun start, with a Scramble Format game, will begin with registration from 11 until 11:45 a.m., and include a cart, two drink tickets, dinner at 6 p.m. and prizes. The cost is $80 per person.

MotherHouse Crisis Nursery is a program of Children’s Home & Aid that provides 24/7 childcare of children in families with mental or medical crisis, homelessness and/or other stresses. The program is “free” and provides hot meals, clean beds, and a safe environment for newborn to 6-year-old children, parent counseling and resource referral services. For more information, contact Children’s Home & Aid at (815) 962-1043.
