PALM CITY — Since 1979, Children’s Emergency Resources, Inc. (CER), has been providing medical exams and assessments, prescription medications, dental services, optical exams and glasses, special requests and crisis intervention to low socio-economic status children and youth in Martin County.

In order to maintain funding, Children’s Emergency Resources must raise additional monies each year with fundraising events and year-round donations.

The annual golf tournament is the largest fundraiser for CER, and will be held on Saturday, February 28 at the Martin Downs Golf Club course, playable and enjoyable to golfers of all ability levels. Martin Downs Golf Club is located at 3801 SW Greenwood Way, Palm City.

The tournament will begin at 7:30 AM with registration and a continental breakfast menu. Shotgun start is at 8:30 AM.

The luncheon begins at 12:30 PM and includes a silent auction, and awards and prizes for golfers (regular group, senior group, couples group, and ladies group).

 According to honoree and former CER Chairman of the Board, Dale Hoffa, through the networking initiative with every health assistant in every school in Martin County, Children’s Emergency Resources keeps up to date on community needs. The agency, funded in part by United Way, has been on the forefront of interagency collaborations to offset, defray and supplant expenses when needed and to assist other agencies in need of support.

Children’s Emergency Resources (CER) is a MartinCounty non-profit 501 (c) 3: donations remain in Martin County to help local children in need.

Hoffa added, “CER has been around for over 30 years. There is no overhead. There are no offices. All directors are volunteers. Overhead is minimal. Almost every dollar goes to Martin County children in need of medication, glasses, hearing aids, dental work, wheelchairs, nebulizers, lice treatment, counseling, rehabilitation, and many other health-related services.”

Registration deadline is February 23, all golfers must be prepaid due to a limited field. The cost is $150 per player donation (foursomes $550).
