Habitat for Humanity, San Bernardino Area, Inc. will be the beneficiary of a golf tournament Friday, Nov. 15 at Sierra Lakes Golf Club in Fontana.

(San Bernardino)  “This golf tournament provides you an opportunity to enjoy a great day of golf at Sierra Lakes Golf Course, while supporting an organization that is helping many in San Bernardino and the surrounding communities achieve the dream of home ownership,” said Dennis Baxter, executive director of Habitat for Humanity, San Bernardino Area, Inc.

Habitat for Humanity is a faith-based non-profit organization that assists low-income families the ability to own their homes by either building new homes or purchasing and renovating existing homes. Participants not only make mortgage payments on the homes, but also provide “sweat equity” with Habitat for Humanity by helping to actually build or rehabilitate the home they will be moving into.

“The proceeds of the golf tournament will help us recruit and maintain relationships with volunteers, experienced construction workers, suppliers, city and other government agencies and banks,” Baxter said. “This is a collaborative effort to find deserving families, and help them to become productive and active members of the community where they will live.”

Sierra Lakes Golf Club is located at 16600 Club House Drive in Fontana, near Sierra Avenue.  The club can be accessed from the 210, 10 or 60 freeways.

Tournament registration begins at 7 a.m. with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Lunch and an awards ceremony will take place at 1 p.m.

Golfers’ registration is $400 for a foursome or $110 for an individual golfer, and includes lunch. Non-golfers can enjoy lunch for $25.

Habitat for Humanity, San Bernardino Area, Inc., also seeks sponsors for the golf tournament.  Sponsorship packages are available from $150 to $5,000.

To register for the golf tournament or a sponsorship, or for more information, go online to www.habitatsb.org, call Dennis Baxter at (909) 478-1176.

Habitat for Humanity also maintains a ReStore, which feature gently used appliances and home renovation items. Not only are ReStore supplies used for Habitat families, they are open to the general public.  The ReStore in Redlands specifically benefits Habitat for Humanity, San Bernardino Area, Inc., and is located at 25948 Business Center Drive, Redlands, CA.

 

The San Bernardino chapter serves San Bernardino County communities between Fontana and Yucaipa, as well as the Mountain Communities of Running Springs, Lake Arrowhead, and Crestline, and the Upper Desert towns of Hesperia, Apple Valley and Victorville.   Proceeds from the upcoming golf tournament will allow Habitat for Humanity, San Bernardino Area, Inc. further its mission in the San Bernardino area.  The agency currently has plans to build six homes in San Bernardino and Grand Terrace.  All will be three-bedroom, two-bath homes with attached two-car garages. The homeowners will be able to add their personal touches on these homes by choosing paint colors and carpeting.
