Friendswood Young Life organization is helping sponsor its first Young Life Bay Area Top Golf Tournament from 1 – 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26 at the Webster Top Golf on I45.
Young Life Bay Area includes Friendswood, Clear Brook and Clear Lake High School students.
The tournament will be played in teams of two and anyone interested in helping the non-profit group can participate. Cost is $125 per team and participants will get tee shirts and food along with chances to win prizes and trophies. A prize will be given for the best team attire.
Young Life is an international, non-denominational Christian organization dedicated to sharing the truth of God’s love and the lessons and values of the Christian faith with middle and high school youth.
“Young Life club offers a safe environment where teenagers, for one hour a week, get the chance to be teenagers. Our leaders love teenagers regardless of what they have done or been a part of, in hopes that through that love, they can see Jesus in us,” Bay Area Young Life Area Director Karlie Crosby said. “We live out the motto, ‘They don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.’”
Young Life members meet once a week at 8:01 p.m. Friendswood Young Life is a large organization and meets Monday nights at Westwood Elementary School in Friendswood at 506 W. Edgewood.
“I love Young Life because I have made lots of life long relationships with the best people. Young Life has taught me so much about how to be a leader and an over all better person, plus it’s awesome to get to do super fun stuff with my best friends,” Friendswood High School Senior Claire Kitchel said.
The fundraiser golf tournament will help with the three groups’ operational costs and also provide scholarships for students.
