Denver, CO, June 22, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Another sign of the improving economy, in excess of $25,000 was raised for two Denver inner-city youth programs last week at the 8th Annual comCables Charity Golf Tournament held at the Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood, CO.
All of the money raised benefited two programs, Here’s Life Inner City – Denver (HLIC-Denver) and Sun Valley Youth Center. For the 8th consecutive year, comCables underwrote 100% of the expenses. Nearly twenty sponsors contributed to this event, which is the largest amount of sponsors in the event’s history.
“For the 8th year in a row, we’re proud to underwrite the entire expense for this tournament.” states Greg Greenwood, CEO of comCables. “This allows all of the proceeds to go to Here’s Life Inner City and Sun Valley Youth Center’s programs directly.”
During the tournament, youths helped by the programs gave treats to the more than 100 golfers, and sometimes helped them putt and chip on the holes. Later, several youths spoke to the participants about how the programs have changed their lives for the better.
The eighth annual comCables -Here’s Life Inner City Golf Tournament drew more sponsors than ever before. “We are very grateful for the level of commitment many of our sponsors have demonstrated that have been with us since the tournament’s inception,” continues Salt Wall, Founder of Here’s Life Inner City – Denver “But we are especially thankful for the large number of new sponsors that see the value of these programs and the financial needs they require to ensure these kids have a place to go instead of the streets.”
Here’s Life Inner City - Denver, part of a national chain of inner-city programs, is a 501c3 organization that assists the poorest Denver neighborhoods with practical and spiritual support. The organization provides a positive resource for at-risk young adults, which keeps them out of gangs and away from violence by providing after school programs, recreational sports and tutoring. Sun Valley Youth Center is an after-school program in the Sun Valley section of West Denver that provides services including tutoring, mentoring, arts and crafts, computer classes, sports and recreation.
Dave Jones, HLIC-Denver Director, thanked sponsors of the event and advised that the money will be used to help challenged youngsters grow into strong, independent adults. He was joined by Kris Rollerson, Executive Director at Sun Valley Youth Center. Kris was recently featured on 9News as a “9Who Care” story.
Some of the great sponsors included: Axess Communications; Berenbaum, Weinshienk & Eason, PC; CEAVCO Audio Visual; Citywide Banks; CoBiz Financial; Coleman Cable; Comtran Corporation; CSC Leasing; Discovery Outsourcing; G&S Builders; General Air; Go Fast Sports; IP5280; and, Loveland Auto Auction.
