Budget cuts across the state have been affecting local not-for-profit agencies and raising concern for organizations such as 360 Youth Services.
“Unfortunately the state has been unable to fulfill commitments that they made to supporting programs we provide, and with that gap we’ve got a pretty significant funding position that we need to fill and these volunteers came together to organize a fundraiser to help us ensure that our programs can continue,” said CEO of 360 Youth Services, Katy LeClair.
After learning about the impact the budget would make on counseling and the homeless youth residential programs, Naperville residents decided to take matters into their own hands, and throw a Scrambling for 360 Youth Services Topgolf Fundraiser event.
“Amanda and I both have a wonderful and dear friend who is very involved in 360 Youth Services and we knew of the current situation going on with the budget being frozen, so we just wanted to help bring awareness and help a really great charity out in a time of need to provide really important services to kids here in Naperville,” said Amanda Ogden and Oriana VanSomeren, Event Organizers of Scrambling for 360.
Community leaders and families joined together for a day of golf, food and good company. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly toward funding for 360’s programs.
