Save the date: Children’s Emergency Resources Golf Tournament at Martin Downs, April 19

Since 1979, Children’s Emergency Resources (CER) has been providing medical exams and assessments, prescription medications, dental services, optical exams and glasses, special requests and crisis intervention to needy 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 April 19 at The Martin Downs Golf Club, 3801 SW Greenwood Way, Palm City.

The tournament will begin at 7:30 AM with registration and a continental breakfast menu. The $125 per player donation includes golf and cart, on-course beverages, buffet lunch, awards, prizes and raffles. Donations are tax-deductible.

According to 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.

 It has supplied wheelchairs, nebulizers, eyeglasses, hearing aids, medication, dental services, lice treatment, funds for emergency medical services and many other health-related services to children in Stuart, Jensen Beach, Port Salerno, Indiantown, Hobe Sound, and Palm City.

Children’s Emergency Resources is a Martin County 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 almost no overhead. There are no offices. All directors are volunteers.”
