THE “C” IN COMMUNITY: Local Women’s Association Donates $700 to FACS Domestic Violence Shelter

The Redwood Empire Women’s Golf Association has donated $700 to the FACS domestic violence shelter. The presentation ceremony was held at the Redwood Empire Memorial Garden, and Rhonda Lewis accepted on behalf of FACS. Karen Smith, Sue Strahan And JoAnn French presided on behalf of the Women’s Golf Association. FACS provides year-round safe rooms primarily for women who have been victims of domestic violence, but also for the medically fragile. The donated funds will be used to provide heaters for the shelter rooms.
The money was raised at the 11th annual Women’s Invitational Golf Tournament at the Redwood Empire Golf Course and Country Club. Raffle tickets were sold, and local merchants throughout the Eel River Valley sponsored the 88 women who participated.
The members of the Redwood Empire Women’s Golf Association share a goal to provide a golf and social program for women, to encourage women to participate in the game of golf, and in every way to maintain good sportsmanship and social relations among the members. To this end, they promote a Junior Golf program, Head Start 1st Tee. They help to improve the facilities at the golf course, and are active in contributing to the beautification of the Eel River Valley, as well as providing support for local community groups such as FACS.
