Wycliffe Golf & Country Club members and guests again showed their philanthropic spirit at the annual Wycliffe Charities Golf Tournament last month. This year’s annual event, which had 246 participants in golf, tennis and the foundation’s silent auction, raised $90,000 for local Palm Beach County organizations.
“With our other fundraising events that included raffles, a Valentine’s Day dinner hosted by generous Wycliffe members and a bike/walk event, the Wycliffe Charities Foundation raised $140,000 this year,” said Wycliffe Charities president, Sue Webber.
The Foundation was then able to donate to 15 non-profit health and children’s related organizations in Palm Beach County. Those fortunate non-profits include Quantum House, Palm Beach Habilitation, Mental Health Association of Palm Beach County, Hospice Foundation of Palm Beach County, Sari Asher Center for Integrative Cancer Care, Aid to Domestic Abuse, Alper Jewish Family Center, Children’s Home Society, Caridad Center, Home Safe, Horses for Healing, Speak up for Kids, Child and Family Connections, VSA, and local EMS-fire rescue.
Wycliffe Charities Foundation was founded 20 years ago by members of Wycliffe Golf & Country Club and in 2010, the Foundation received the “Outstanding Philanthropic Private Foundation Award” for Palm Beach County. Wycliffe Charities and the members of Wycliffe hope to increase their giving each year.
