This year’s Nehemiah Golf Classic will be held on Aug. 9 at the Reid Park Golf Course.
This year we will also host Tee Up for Teens in conjunction with the golf Classic.
Tee-up for Teens!
Monday, August 9
1 – 3 p.m.
Reid Golf Course
Tee-up For Teens: An event just for Clark County Mentors and Teens! At this event, 25 local teens will enjoy quality time with their mentor at the Reid Golf Course driving range AND the putting green, fuel up with lunch and a powerful message from a local golf pro, and receive an epic Swag Bag! All of this, just because we want to celebrate the powerful connections, conversations, and coaching that can happen through one-on-one mentoring.
At The Nehemiah Foundation, we love to celebrate ministry strategies that are brand-new and innovative – but some things NEVER change! One of those profound realities is found in the POWER of one-on-one mentoring. Nothing quite compares to the impact that a single mentor can have on an individual, and we are very proud of every single one of our Nehemiah Ministry Partners who invests in our Clark County youth all year long through their own unique twist on the age-old wisdom of mentoring.
LIMITED to 25 mentors and 25 teens
RSVP by July 30
