YoungLife to have golf fundraiser in Suwanee

SUWANEE -- The YoungLife of Suwanee and Buford will have a golf tournament fundraiser on Thursday at Bear's Best in Suwanee.

Registration for the event opens at 8 a.m. and a shotgun start tees off at 9 a.m. Cost for the event is $175 per player and all proceeds benefit the local YoungLife, which represents North Gwinnett High, North Gwinnett Middle, Buford High, Buford Middle and Lanier High and Lanier Middle, along with the organization's ministry to children with special needs.

"We believe in the power of presence," area director Brad McKlveen said. "Kids' lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose."
