ETSU sorority hosting golf tournament in Jonesborough

The Kappa Delta Sorority chapter at East Tennessee State University will host the 12th annual Shamrock Golf Tournament at The Crossings Golf Club in Jonesborough on Saturday, April 14.
The morning tee off will be held at 8:30 a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. tee off time in the afternoon.
Registration is $200 for a four-person team and includes a catered lunch.
Eighty percent of the tournament proceeds will remain in Tennessee, benefiting the local Coalition for Kids and the Children’s Advocacy Center of the First Judicial District. The remaining 20 percent will be sent to Prevent Child Abuse America and will fund nationwide public awareness programs.
Challye Hays, the Kappa Delta chapter’s vice president of community service, says, “We are excited to host our 12th Shamrock golf tournament and see our hard work pay off. We are honored to be able to assist the Coalition for Kids and Children’s Advocacy Center as our local organizations. They provide many resources for the children of this area.”
According to recent PCA America statistics, the number of children abused or neglected in the United States grew by 33 percent to reach a level of 3.2 million in the last decade, rising from one million cases in 1999. Three children die each day from abuse or neglect in the United States.
Kappa Delta began supporting PCA America in 1981 and began the nationwide Shamrock event in 1983. More than $6 million has been raised to benefit child abuse prevention efforts across the country.
