GH Phipps recently hosted its 13th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at the Bear Dance Golf Course in Larkspur Colo. and raised $20,000 for Project Sanctuary, an organization that focuses on whole family support for all branches of the military.
The annual event brings together trade partners, design partners, clients and GH Phipps employees to raise money for a local charity. One hundred and thirty-six golfers came out to play at the event and help support the cause. Project Sanctuary’s full-time staff of 23 works with several hundred volunteers, who put in more than 11,000 hours annually to help military families thrive, providing six-day therapeutic retreats and support services involving a service member’s entire family.
“At Project Sanctuary we believe in the power of our communities to stand behind our nation’s heroes and their families, helping them to heal and thrive,” said Amy McDermott, chief development officer for Project Sanctuary. “For more than 65 years, GH Phipps has built a legacy of serving communities where it does business, and that commitment to civic involvement is why we were honored and grateful to partner with GH Phipps for the annual Charity Golf Classic.
Helping active duty military and veterans alike, across all branches of the military and all generations, the retreats focus on healing, recreation and education. Follow-up support services focus on family and community reconnection, with classes in communication, conflict resolution and financial wellness. Annually, the organization helps 300 families with their retreat program, and provides support services to between 1,500 and 1,600 families.
Amy McDermott and Emily Williams represented Project Sanctuary at the event. GH Phipps’ committee, who worked to make the event a success, included Kevin Hups, Mike Hester, Moe Cole and Todd Ruff.
