October 4, 2014 by SoWal Staff

The St. Joe Community Foundation (Foundation) will be a premier sponsor for the 6th annual Sugar Sands Charity Golf Classic benefiting Children in Crisis at Kelly Plantation Golf Club on Oct. 13.
The Foundation’s $5,000 grant to Children In Crisis, Inc. is of vital importance, as Children In Crisis assists local children in Walton and Okaloosa County that have been neglected or abused and are seeking shelter and assistance.  
“The Foundation was formed to invest in the ongoing improvement of the quality of life for those in our community”, says Janet Greeno, Executive Director for the Foundation.     

“Being a sponsor of the golf tournament will help to raise awareness of this wonderful organization and their good work in the community, but most importantly, to help Walton County children that have been abused or neglected get back to being a healthy and happy child.”
