  • Clays for Kids Sporting Clays Shoot –October

    Sporting Clays is a relatively new sport that is considered “golf with a gun”. A course of 75 clay targets is set up in 10 stations. Teams of four compete for the best score. This new event is rapidly becoming a popular fundraiser.
  • Fore the Kids Golf Tournament – May

    A premier golf event held at Holly Hills Country Club each May. Golf is the vehicle but Character Education is at the core of this day of golf. Many of the sponsors have been involved with the Y for more than 10 years. We are proud of the commitment our volunteers and sponsors bring to this ever growing fundraiser.
