Putting For PACE
Let’s Get Ready to PAR TEE!
February 17, 2015 | St. Lucie County, FL – More than 17,000 girls were referred to Florida’s juvenile justice system last year, and girls represented more than 31% of the total juvenile justice population. Girls are at higher risk than boys for sexual abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence, and this elevated risk may explain the strong link between abuse and trauma and girls’ delinquency.
To expand awareness and support for the many young girls in our community who are striving to aim for higher ground, PACE Center for Girls, Treasure Coast and Keiser University College of Golf and Sport Management have teamed up together for an exciting and unique morning of golf.
On Saturday, March 7, starting at 8am and ending at 11am, the College of Golf will host a variety of indoor golf events that will delight both the beginner and golf pro. The Keiser University College of Golf has a 25,000-square-foot facility that includes 4000+ square feet of indoor golf instructional space that houses state of the practice technology including video systems, launch monitors, a 3D swing analysis system designed for individual swing analysis, a 3 hole putting contest, closest to the pin contest, longest drive and many others.
While enjoying a light breakfast and challenging yourself or friends at the different stations, guests can also take part in the golf history displays, wellness clinics and chair massage and check out the items for raffle. Don’t miss the gorgeous clubs and lessons with a pro! Those will go fast! Tickets to this unique golf experience are FREE, however we do ask that you RSVP to Deborah at PACE 772-595-8880. All proceeds directly benefit the lives of PACE girls.
“The collaboration between the PACE Center and Keiser University was an obvious and natural choice” said the center’s new Executive Director, Vickie Colter. “Keiser obviously cares about their students and understands that our girls are going to graduate high school and need to be exposed to all kinds of secondary education. And they need to see that girls can definitely play golf too!”
PACE provides girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy. PACE values all girls and young women, believing each one deserves an opportunity to find her voice, achieve her potential and celebrate life defined by responsibility, dignity, serenity and grace.
The College of Golf is part of Keiser University, a trusted, reputable, and accredited institution awarding degrees from the associate to the doctoral level since 1977. Find out more, about our Florida golf school today.
