When: Thursday, Sept. 21. Shotgun start at 1 p.m.

Cost: $320/team of four. Boxed lunches will be provided.

How to signup: Form a team of four and signup by clicking on the green Fore Kids Golf Tournament button on PCASA.org or contact Will Merritt (William.Merr[email protected]).

The Fore Kids Golf Tournament is open to all golfers and is hosted by VDOT’s Culpeper District Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign  (CVC) Committee, which is a voluntary charitable giving program for state employees that raises funds for numerous nonprofit health and humanitarian organizations throughout the state of Virginia.

This tournament will benefit Piedmont CASA, which provides and supports trained volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children. Last year, they served 294 boys and girls – more than ever before. Research shows that children with CASA Volunteers spend less time in court, less time in foster homes, obtain more medical care, do better in school, and find safe and permanent homes faster – all keys to breaking the debilitating cycle of abuse and neglect. No other organization performs this service and they do not charge fees.
