TAB Bank will help raise money to help the homeless reach goals of sobriety, employment and housing at the 2022 Ogden Rescue Mission Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, Sept. 9, at Wolf Creek Resort in Eden, UT. Hosted by the bank, all proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Ogden Rescue Mission, a faith-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides housing, food, counseling and employment services for homeless persons in Northern Utah.
Since 2001, with the generous support of past participants, donors, sponsors and friends, the tournament has raised $475,000 for the benefit of the Ogden Rescue Mission. This is enough money to provide 180,000 meals to the less fortunate in communities in Northern Utah.
“The golf tournament provides a fun way to raise money for critical services and resources for the Ogden Rescue Mission’s purpose,” Trevor Morris, director of marketing at TAB Bank, said. “This year, we want to raise $35,000, our biggest yearly amount ever.”
Since 1964, the Ogden Rescue Mission has served the homeless and indigent by providing services that meet spiritual, physical, emotional, educational, social and mental wholeness needs. The rescue mission has two programs — the return to work program and the new life program — helping men and women obtain stability through employment and learn methods to face life’s daily challenges.
The rescue mission provides emergency services that include overnight shelter, three daily meals, hygiene, a phone message board, bible studies, faith-based recovery meetings, chapel services and more.
Individuals and companies can get involved and help meet the fundraising goals by sponsoring the event in the following ways:
- Hole Sponsorships
- Breakfast and Lunch Sponsorships
- Tournament Foursomes
Those who provide $750 or more in cash or silent auction donations are recognized as sponsors and invited to participate in the tournament as a hole sponsor.
“We thank TAB Bank for bringing companies and the community together to support our life-changing services,” Judy Doud, director at the Ogden Rescue Mission, said. “We look forward to another great day on the golf course educating the community about our mission to end homelessness and restore lives.”
