CHARITY GOLF OUTING

SUPPORT/HELP/AID

This year, South Shore Support Services, Inc.’s (SSSSI) annual golf/dinner outing is scheduled for Friday, September 25, 2009 at the South Shore Country Club in Hingham, Massachusetts.

This year funding for SSSSI is at a greater need than ever.  SSSSI receives 95% of its’ funding from the State.  As you have read in the news, state funding will be significantly cut for social programs for FY2010.   The week of June 22nd SSSSI offered a Teen Vacation Camp for handicapped teens.  The group went to such places as: Coco Key Water Park in Danvers, Boston Harbor Cruises Whale Watching trip and Wild West Rodeo Show at Marshfield Fairgrounds.  SSSSI offers such outings during an August vacation camp, winter vacation break in December, February school vacation week and again during the April school vacation break.  Activities such as these Camps and Family Supports for Assistance with Adult Children are threatened to be reduced or eliminated in FY 2010.

How much is golf?  $150 per golfer.  How much out of the $150 goes to the charity? $50.

What do you get for your $100 on September 25th?

•    Coffee and donuts donated by Dunkin Donuts.
•    Sleeve of Titleist Golf balls with SSSSI insignia.
•    Re-useable Insulated Lunch Bag with SSSSI insignia.
•    Eighteen holes of golf with cart.
•    Helicopter Ball drop with one $500 closest to the pin winner!
