A golf outing in memory of Trevor Vautaw will benefit Transformations Center for Healing Aug. 5.
“It is a memorial golf outing that actually a local family out of Noblesville started,” said Beth Bishop, fundraising and development director at Transformations Center for Healing. “The Vautaw family began it in memory of their son who died from a drug overdose. They initially started the golf outing and then a couple years ago partnered with Transformation Center for Healing to donate all the proceeds to us.”
Transformation Center for Healing is a year-long recovery program for women. The faith-based organization is based in Noblesville. Funds raised at the golf outing assists in payment for treatment for some of the women. In past years, the fundraiser has raised more than $30,000. This year, Bishop said the goal is to break $40,000.
“Change and overcoming addiction is not just a short-term process but a lifelong journey so we feel having a long resident program is a huge asset to getting over some of the initial hurdles in developing behaviors and patterns to help women be successful in their journey,” Bishop said. “We offer scholarships for women to go through program because a majority of the women we work with cannot afford to pay out of pocket.”
The golf outing is $125 per person and includes a box lunch, a dinner, a silent auction and golf. The event takes place at Fox Prairie Golf Course, 8465 E. 196th St. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and golf begins at 11:30 a.m. Sponsorship opportunities also are available.
