Business Leaders of Charlotte (BLOC) held its 13th Annual Golf Tournament, presented by Mass Mutual of the Carolina's, at Raintree Country Club on May 9th, 2017. This was the organizations spring community involvement event, which raised $21,800 for Turning Point.
Turning Point, the only domestic violence program in Union County, has been in existence since 1985 offering support and advocacy to victims of domestic violence. In early 1986, a crisis hot line was established. Later that year, the program was expanded to include support groups. These groups offered a safe atmosphere where victims of domestic violence could express their feelings and learn about the dynamics of domestic violence. Turning Point’s vision is that all people will have safe and healthy relationships, free from domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse in their homes, schools, workplaces, and communities. Turning Point exists to end domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse through safe shelter, advocacy, prevention, and social change.
“Both as the Golf Tournament Director and a member of the Turning Point Board of Directors, my deepest thank you to each of you and all of BLOC Nation for the impact you have made on an organization that is doing really valuable and difficult work on a daily basis.....the money IS having a VERY positive impact!”
Scott Babbidge, BLOC Ballantyne Co-Director
Turning Point Board Member
