CREATED BY FRIENDS AND FAMILY, The Linda Keller Delauter Memorial Golf Classic celebrates Linda’s life by raising money to support our work combating the effects of poverty in our community. This year, attendees and sponsors helped to raise more than $25,000 for the Coalition’s future home of the Emergency Family Shelter. Thank you to our sponsors, players, and planning committee for ensuring the day’s success!
“The tournament’s energy and participation intensified once Charlie agreed to renaming the golf tournament to the Linda Keller Delauter Memorial Golf Classic. I believe the tournament is a perfect example of how family, friends, and community can turn a terrible tragedy into a positive annual event and has continued to do so for 25 years. “
A special thank you to Event Title Sponsors FH Properties, Lee Delauter & Sons, Inc, Riverside Liquors, Whitesell Pharmacy, and Yankee Land LLC. At this year’s Golf Classic, it was announced that a Family Suite in the new Emergency Family Shelter will be named in honor of Linda and her husband Charlie.
“Charlie has been a friend of the Coalition for many years and has not only helped raise money to support our programs — but also has been an advocate and champion of the work we do and the clients we serve. Charlie’s compassion for those less fortunate may only be eclipsed by his late wife Linda’s dedication to the community. We are pleased to honor and recognize Linda and Charlie by naming a Family Suite for them at the new permanent Emergency Family Shelter.” — Nick Brown, Executive Director
