VFY Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Volunteers for Youth’s annual fundraiser takes place at the Chapel Hill Country Club. This is a great opportunity for golf enthusiasts to enjoy CHCC’s Golf Course while lending support to an organization helping local youth. Participants may sign up as a team of four with sponsorship opportunities available. The tournament has a shotgun format, with opportunities for prizes along the way. All proceeds benefit Volunteers for Youth programming.
