Tabitha Meals on Wheels Receives Support Through Golf from Gateway Sertoma
Date:7/23/2013

(PRWEB) July 23, 2013

Lincoln’s Gateway Sertoma Club and Tabitha, your answer for Elder Care, joined forces to welcome more than 160 golfers to HiMark Golf Course in June for a great cause. Proceeds from the 11th annual event brought in nearly $45,000 in support of Tabitha Meals on Wheels.

In true tournament-style, the event featured a four-person scramble, hole games, prizes and a media challenge, in which the KLKN Channel 8 Eyewitness News team re-claimed the coveted media trophy.

"Gateway Sertoma Club is once again honored to be a part of this tournament for Tabitha Meals on Wheels, now 11 years and running,” said Charlie Huff, Gateway Sertoma Golf committee member. “This is our largest fundraiser, and our members really work hard on it. We support Tabitha because Meals on Wheels is such a terrific program that benefits Lincoln’s seniors."

Proceeds from the tournament totaled an amount that provides more than 7,500 hot, nutritious meals to Tabitha Meals on Wheels clients. The program services more than 400 meals per day to those in need. Seventy percent of recipients are unable to afford the $5.75 cost of the meal. As Tabitha has made a point to turn away no one in need, contributions like those from Gateway Sertoma are instrumental in keeping the program in operation.

“Partnerships with great organizations like Gateway Sertoma are why Tabitha Meals on Wheels can continue to operate,” said Christie Hinrichs, Tabitha president and CEO. “We are truly blessed by the hard work, dedication and commitment this group has shown for Tabitha Meals on Wheels.”

Gateway Sertoma was founded as a service club more than 50 years ago. The group’s mission is “service to mankind”, motivating members to volunteer service and fundraising for community programs in need. Ten years ago, the group merged a love of service with an affinity for golf by hosting a charity golf tournament. Members turned to Tabitha to help operate the tournament, with proceeds benefiting first Tabitha Hospice and later Tabitha Meals on Wheels.
