In the United States a woman is beaten every 9 seconds. Last year in North Carolina, 84 lives were lost to domestic violence. CSP is proud and honored to partner with the Avon Foundation and the PGA TOUR Wives Association to help make a difference in the lives of thousands of people in North Carolina who are affected by this tragic and senseless act. We are setting a very aggressive and lofty goal to be the largest team in the inaugural Avon Foundation Walk the Course Against Domestic Violence event, held at the Quail Hollow Championship on Tuesday, April 28th and we cannot do it without your help.
Walk the Course Against Domestic Violence is a non-competitive, family-friendly event that will raise critical funds and awareness to help end the cycle of domestic violence in North Carolina. Join the CSP team to walk 9 holes (2.5 miles) or 18 holes (5 miles). Either way, you’ll be sure to enjoy one of North Carolina’s finest golf courses at Quail Hollow Club. Funds raised will be distributed by the Avon Foundation to outstanding organizations in the Charlotte area, including the United Family Services Shelter for Battered Women and The Shelter of Gaston County.

Cost is $20 for the 9-hole walk and $25 for the 18-hole walk (although the sky is the limit as to how much $ you can raise!). You can’t beat that for a family evening of fun and some serious celebrity spotting! Children and collapsible/umbrella strollers are welcome – the CSP team will be pushing our huge fams for this Smarty cause and we hope to see you there! You won’t be able to miss us since we’ll be sporting our Smarty pink polos, hot off the press just for this event! Come find us and wear your Smarty pink and green so we can blanket Quail Hollow with our Smarty pride!
