Spalding University will sponsor the Compassion Cup Golf Scramble at Oxmoor Country Club in Louisville, Kentucky on Monday, September 28. The proceeds from this scramble will be given to Orphan Care Alliance’s Life Coaching program. Life Coaches are paired with youth who are aging out of the foster system to encourage personal success as they transition to adulthood.
Each team will consist of 4 players. This scramble is designed for you to bring your pastor as a way of showing your appreciation for what they do throughout the year. There will also be opportunities at each hole and during the luncheon to learn more about ways to pray for and serve local families in crisis and vulnerable children. You are also encouraged to bring a foster parent to golf to give them a day of relaxation and adventure – we encourage all levels of golfers to join in!
1. REGISTRATION SETUP
Each team is automatically setup to have a reserved spot for the day of the Scramble. Please, provide a team name when registering so that other members will be able to link to your team when they pay for their spot, individually.
