Charities Benefit from One Bermuda Alliance Golf Fundraiser Donation
The One Bermuda Alliance recently held a Golf Fundraiser at the Fairmont Southampton’s Turtle Bay Golf Course with two local charities receiving donations from the funds raised. OBA Parliamentarians and Executive were joined by members of the community comprising 15 teams and 75 people.
Two charities, Mirrors Team Street Safe and the Coalition for the Protection of Children, each received a $3,500 donation.
The Team Street Safe programme involves community workers proactively and reactively interacting directly with gang members to prevent crimes from taking place as well as helping those engaged in the gang lifestyle find a way out. This team is making a very real and positive difference in the lives of many of our youth caught up in destructive and antisocial behaviour.
The Coalition for the Protection of Children advocates for child rights, protection and social justice. Their Breakfast for every Child programme provides 30,000 meals for public school children each year. The Coalition also engages families to provide conflict resolution.
OBA Chair, Senator Lynne Woolridge said: “Donating to these two charities supports the OBA mandate to assist Bermuda’s youth. Our members were keen to assist the Coalition and Mirrors Team Street Safe as they are making a tangible and positive contribution to our community, focussing on at risk youth. We are grateful to participants and our sponsors who contributed funds, goods and services that ensured an enjoyable day whilst benefitting those most in need in Bermuda.”
