Golfing couldn’t have been better for Imara’s third annual tournament this summer, with record breaking attendance and funds raised.
“The participation and sponsors from the golf outing will make a difference for the ten teenage moms and eight babies at the Imara House in Nanyuki, Kenya,” said David Ching, Imara golf chair. “This year we raised $38,000 to support the operations in Kenya, which is more than a 50 percent increase over last year.”
The money raised at this event are going toward the 2015 operating budget. These funds are used for food, supplies and educational materials for the moms and their babies at the Imara House.
“The golf tournament is just one of the many ways to bring hope to Imara’s moms and change the lives of their babies. Malnutrition affects a high percentage of young children in developing countries. Part of Imara’s educational program involves teaching the moms proper nutrition for themselves and their babies,” added Ching. “We extend our sincere appreciation to all who participated in this year’s event.”
Next year’s charity golf event will be held on Monday, July 27th, 2015 at Rush Creek Golf Club. Pictures from this year’s event are now on the Imara Facebook page: facebook.com/imarainternational.
