A Taste of Teen…and that’s why we golf!

Some of our Teen Littles tasted the flavor of some good cookin’ & grillin’ last night — with the help of Board members Brian Leupold and Karen Meck along with some hungry volunteers.  Sure, the rain hit — but that didn’t stop dinner plans.

Our Teen Program’s goals include keeping our teenaged Littles in school and getting them to high school graduation; helping them decide what they want to do after graduation; and teaching adult life skills…like cooking.  As our teens know, there is a definite benefit to learning to cook…and that is getting to eat what you cook!

Our Teen Program is just one of four (4) mentoring programs provided to Berks County youth.  So why are events like our upcoming 2022 Jason Claudfelter Golf Invitational are so important?  Because our fundraising helps us to continue to provide our quality-driven mentoring programs FREE-OF-CHARGE to our Littles and their families.

The 2022 Jason Claudfelter Golf Invitational — our 20th golf tournament — takes place Friday, August 19th, at Willow Hollow Golf Course, and we still have room for you to form your own foursome.  It’s just $100 per golfer to enjoy a round of golf with your friends or co-workers; an afternoon of food, refreshments, and fun AND a great reason to start your weekend off early.  The Top Three teams win cash prizes, and the Top Team gets their team & score engraved on the coveted BBBS of Berks Jason Claudfelter Golf Invitational Cup.  And oh, we can’t forget…back again this year — thanks to Bob Fisher Chevrolet — our Hole-In-One Contest for a car!

We’ve got Jersey Mike Subs to enjoy during registration/sign-in from 12 noon to 12:45 pm with a “shotgun” start at 1 pm.  After the round, enjoy dinner on us with a catered meal while the results are tabulated.
