This Saturday, the non-profit organization NEST Alliance will be hosting a special fundraising golf tournament at Mountain Aire Golf Course in West Jefferson.
NEST stands for Nurturing, Establishing, Securing and Trusting. The organization was formed in 2010 and its main goal is to find ways to enrich the lives of the children in Ashe County. The NEST Alliance has also been working hard to build relationships with other agencies and groups in the county, as well as community supporters.
The long term goal of NEST Alliance is to eventually have a children’s home in the county. Proceeds and donations from the golf tournament will go to the Roots and Wings Children’s Home fund.
Tournament entry fee is $70 and you can sign up on Saturday before the tournament begins. Gift certificates and other prizes will be awarded for the top golfers.
The NEST Alliance will also gladly accept any donations that can be made.
Tee time for the tournament is 8:30 a.m. It will be a shotgun start.
This is the second fundraising event the NEST Alliance has had in the last two months. The group held a large yard sale in West Jefferson on May 24.
