TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Community members took to the golf course Friday to help raise money for local youth programs.

The 32nd annual Sheriff Shootout Golf Outing took place at Rea Park Golf Course, with all of the proceeds going toward youth programs at the Hamilton Center.

“We use that money to maintain programming, enhance programming, maybe start some new programs here at Hamilton Center but we also use it to sponsor services for children and families who sometimes maybe don’t have ready access to services,” Zach Jenkins, Event Coordinator, said.

The money raised comes from sponsorships, golf fees, and donations. Jenkins said around 30 teams signed up to play.

The Hamilton Center Foundation pledged to match any donation made during Friday’s event.

“To have the match benefit in place is really unique to an event and so to see this many organizations from the community come out and show support in a year when we have the match benefit and to help maximize that match benefit, it’s huge. And it’s a privilege to be a part of an event like that,” Jenkins said.

Last year, the money raised was able to help more than 100 children and their families through the programs they have.

Jenkins said they will announce how much money was raised sometime next week.
