LiftUp Young Lives Golf Tournament

Event Date: Saturday, November 10, 2018 Location: The Majors Golf Club

The first annual LiftUp Young Lives Golf Classic will be held on Saturday, November 10 at The Majors in Palm Bay.
Foursomes are being put together now. The cost is $80 per person or $300 per foursome. For that fee, each golfer will receive water, beer, and snacks on the course, fun games, raffle prizes, and a lunch ceremony. There will also be a hole-in-one contest with a grand prize of $2000. All proceeds benefit the LiftUp Young Lives program.
Sponsors are needed for each hole, with a fee of $100 per hole. "We are looking for individuals or companies to sponsor the holes," says co-director Lisa Soloway.
LiftUp Young Lives, which launched in August, is a program in which Holy Trinity Parish mentors teens and young adults aging out of foster care, or homeless or those rescued from human trafficking. The bi-weekly classes and workshops on life skills, living skills, social skills, financial responsibility, and more, are designed to help young people realize their purpose and give them the tools they need to succeed in life.
"We are excited as we had five young people join us in our session that started on August 22, 2018," Holy Trinity Deacon and co-director Stacey Westphal said. LiftUp will have its first graduating class from Level One in December, with five young adults receiving a new laptop computer to assist them in everyday life. The participants in the first graduating class range in age from 16 to 26.
Co-Directors Lisa Soloway and Deacon Stacey Westphal will guide and lead LiftUp with the Leadership Advisory Board. The program will be two levels to greater empower and impact the teens they will serve. Both programs will be 15 weeks/30 sessions. Level 1 will introduce key concepts regarding living skills, social skills, financial responsibility, leadership, and spiritual empowerment.
The Alpha for Youth Program, under the direction of Co-Rector Rev. Pamela Easterday, will guide the teens in their spiritual growth. Alpha is an interactive series to help adults connect with young people and help them discover and deepen a relationship with Jesus.
The sessions will be held in a classroom environment that is vibrant and full of challenges to guide young people forward in their academic and life-skills study.
