 Lancaster, PA – Mom’s House of Lancaster rescheduled its 26th Annual Fund-raising Golf Classic for Monday, June 10, 2019, to raise money for program needs at Mom’s House.

It will include a lunch, 18-hole 4-person scramble, prizes including a Hole-In-One cash prize,19th hole social hour, special visit by Lancaster Barnstormer’s mascot, Cylo, must have raffle items and an amazing silent auction, as well as fantastic buffet dinner with awards to the top golfers. Registration begins at 11 a.m., and tee-off is at noon.

Organized by the Mom’s House Golf Classic Committee, the golf tournament is part of an important piece to the annual fundraising efforts to raise funds to promote and support Mom’s House childcare and parent programs; to provide state accredited early learning education; and life-changing support to single parents pursuing an education.

“The Golf Classic is a fun and important annual event to support Mom’s House families,” Mom’s House Executive Director, Sara Johns, said. “in its 26 years, it has never been rained out. We are looking to make the most of this rain date. Thanks to the generosity of the many people who make it successful, we are able to make a significant difference in the ability of single parents to access high-quality higher education while their young children receive their own high-quality education.”

LEPCO is the long-time standing “Presenting Sponsor” for the event, continuing their long tradition of partnering with Mom’s House on projects and programs that benefit the community and Mom’s House families.

Last year’s tournament raised nearly $15,000 to ensure educational opportunities for single parents and their young children enrolled at Mom’s House.

Recognized as an amazing center with a 4 Keystone STAR accreditation for the children and families in Lancaster by the Raise Your Start Pennsylvania Early Learning Resource Centers, Mom’s House of Lancaster is one of the most highly regarded organizations of its kind.

Mom’s House enrolled approximately 20 full-time single parent students in the 2018-2019 school year and offers the highest accreditation of early learning and childcare for ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. Committee and board members, volunteers, and staff work hard each year to raise funds from businesses and individuals who recognize the importance of Mom’s House graduates in the community and the local economy.

Supporting Mom’s House families is a great investment in the Lancaster and Pennsylvania economy. Most enrolled families are Lancaster County residents, and the vast majority find meaningful employment or continue their education after graduating.

Mom’s House of Lancaster is the only nonprofit in Lancaster offering free childcare, early learning education to single parents pursuing an education full-time to raise their young family in financial independence. Mom’s House prepares full-time single parent students to receive an education, enter the job market, and to achieve their parenting, professional and personal goals. Programs and services support the economic growth of the community in response to changing needs for two generations.
