Home of Hope sponsors golf championship
Submitted By Jennifer Neale
The Wente Vineyard Course in Livermore was selected for the Second Annual Golf Championship. Over 120 golfers will play one of the most aggressive courses in the San Francisco Bay Area, for the Home of Hope. ÒUp until last year, our fund-raising has been through more traditional dinners,Ó explained Nilima Sabharrwal, M.D., the founder of Home of Hope. ÒVineet Sharma, the founder of Indo-America Golf Association, approached us with the idea of speaking to a brand new audience.
ÒWhen the golfers arrive, there will be Morning Baskets full of croissants, fruit and juice to begin the day correctly. Lunch will be served, and at the end of the day, everyone will meet again at the 19th Hole, for cocktails, snacks and both auctioned and raffled items; a great guarantee that every golfer can leave the Wente Vineyard Course with smiles!Ó
The focus this year is on raising $40,000 to fund computer labs to educate the students in English, and providing vocational training. All of these children truly need an inspiring teacher, a warm heart, and a guiding hand. They have been orphaned or abandoned. Some are deaf or blind. Many have been crippled in physical, or emotional ways, and others have suffered from both. There are 11 active locations now, 10 are in India and 1 in Berkeley, California.
