New safety features for the Golf Tournament include:

  • Scheduled tee times rather than a shotgun start to avoid large groups congregating during registration or after play.
  • Two boxed meals will be provided to every golfer, replacing the buffets previously used.
  • The option to add plastic dividers in golf carts if players decide they need this additional safety feature in their carts.
  • We will continue to sell raffle tickets and mulligans, but staff will also be present around the course to sell these items to lessen the need for gathering at the front registration area.
  • Increased space between tables in and around the clubhouse so golfers can comfortably eat their meals.
Our mission to empower survivors and their children to believe in themselves and build new lives filled with dignity, respect, safety, and hope is now more critical than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The crucial needs we have continued to meet include:
  • A 32% increase in hotline calls, which means Empowerhouse responded to 679 hotline calls totaling almost seven per day.
  • Advocacy hours and time spent with ongoing clients have increased due to more complex situations and increased safety planning.
  • Increasing rental assistance for 27 clients and their 60 children in our Housing Program to 100% of their costs. We have spent double our $18,000 a month budget since March to keep our Housing clients and their children in stable housing.
  • Empowerhouse provided 37,000 bed nights and experienced a 50% increase in shelter and housing bed nights. 37% more people were in our housing program this year.
Your vital support of our tournament helps fulfill the Empowerhouse's vision to create a diverse network of community members working together to promote safe relationships, homes, and communities, which is especially important during these uncertain and challenging times.

Beautiful Pendleton Golf Club...named one of the "top must play courses" by GolfStyles magazine (and known by many as "Fredericksburg's best kept secret!").
