JEFFERSON CITY — Vitae Foundation is hosting the Jerry & Kaye Meiners 22nd Annual Pro-Life Golf Classic Monday, July 18, 2016, at the Shadow Glen Golf Club in Olathe, Kan. The golf tournament is named for the Meiners, who have chaired this tournament since its inception. It raises funds to promote a culture of life and to help inform women facing unplanned pregnancies about local resources available which can assist them in making a life-affirming decision.
Lunch will be served at 11 a.m. followed by a noon shotgun start. The tournament is a 4-person scramble for men and women. Prizes include a new 2016 Cadillac SRX Luxury AWD provided by Jim Falk Motors in Clinton, Missouri for a hole-in-one and a $500 prize for the chipping contest, provided by Greg Muraski. Immediately following the tournament, a complimentary dinner provided by award-winning Jack Stack Barbecue will be served. The tournament will conclude with a live auction. Non-golfers are invited to attend the complimentary dinner and auction.
Proceeds from this golf tournament and auction will be used to help promote Vitae’s mission, which includes media efforts in the Greater Kansas City area. Vitae’s recent six-month digital marketing campaign with seven Kansas City area collaborating Pregnancy Help Centers resulted in 489 phone calls or form submissions via email for scheduling appointments or requesting information.
“Vitae’s strategies are directing pregnant women in need to Pregnancy Help Centers where they receive real help and resources. Take away fear and isolation and offer practical support so women can choose life,” Vitae’s COO/Senior Market Director Anne Carmichael stated. “We are on a winning track and that means we’re saving mothers and babies.”
