Since opening its doors in March 2008, SECU Family House at UNC Hospitals has served more than 20,000 seriously ill patients and their loved ones. Anyone can support this critically needed hospitality house by attending Family House’s 10th Anniversary Golf Tournament & Birthday Party on Friday, April 13. Gary Williams, popular host of Golf Channel’s Morning Drive, will emcee both fun-filled events at Chapel Hill Country Club.
“When you support Family House, you actively contribute to the health and healing of others,” says Executive Director Janice McAdams. “95% of our guests say that Family House has had a positive impact on their sense of safety and wellbeing.” Family House volunteers and donors make a difference in the lives of thousands of Family House guests every year. The 10th-anniversary celebrations on April 13 are fun and commemorative way to support the organization’s mission.
The daytime event is a Golf Tournament, which includes breakfast, lunch, 19th hole, and swag bag for those who purchase tickets or sponsorships. For those who wish to watch only, no tickets are required to attend the Golf Tournament. The evening event is Family House’s 10th Birthday Party, a fundraising fête, which includes cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, auction, and music by pianist Bill Bolen, a cappella group UNC Clef Hangers, and DJ Joe Bunn. Both events will be hosted by Gary Williams of the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive. Those interested can attend either or both events.
Proceeds from Family House’s 10th Anniversary Golf Tournament & Birthday Party directly support its daily operations serving healing guests and their families. It takes a community of donors and volunteers to support this 40-room hospitality house located in Chapel Hill, NC. Community members who will be attending include original Family House guests, volunteers, donors, staff, board members, and other supporters. Honored Birthday Party guests include SECU Family House founders Drs. Thomas Shea and Brian Stabler and Mr. John B. Morris III of Morris Commercial.
