YouTurn Had A Ball At Omaha Days’ Golf Classic


Friday, August 4th, 2017 was a fabulous day to get away from the office.  Fortunately for YouTurn (YT) staff members, Stewart Giddings, YT Operations Manager, James Hunter, YT Community Liaison and Joshua Howell, YT Executive Assistant, they were invited to represent YT at the Bi-annual Native Omaha Days Golf Classic.  The 18-hole individual stroke Golf Tournament was held at Shoreline Golf Course, located just a few blocks from YT’s main offices. Stewart, James and Joshua were joined by Lamond Wilburn (a friend of the organization and a great golfer), to makeup the YT team. 

This bi-annual event was hosted by Michael Green, CEO of EverGreen Capital Management, Inc. in Omaha, Nebraska.  This fundraising event was supported by more than 60 golfers representing local businesses and community-based organizations as well as native Omahans that had returned to the city for the week-long activities.   The funds raised were earmarked to support Charles Drew Health Center, Inc.

The event was golf-tastic! There couldn’t have been a better day to be out on the green,” said Stewart Giddings.

It was a fun day for sure. We had the opportunity to play alongside some local celebrities including Hall of Famers Johnny Rogers and Marlin Briscoe, ” Joshua Howell added. The tourney provided a great opportunity to talk about YouTurn’s mission and unique work in Omaha.”

Lolo’s Chicken & Waffles and Golf USA were among the local sponsors of the event.  Both businesses are also participating partners in TAGG (Together A Greater Good); an app which can be downloaded to your mobile device and used to raise funds for YT through your purchases with more than 100 local businesses.
