On Course For A Cause

Soundview Family YMCA 13th Annual GOLF TOURNAMENT

You can make a difference helping kids stay on course with every swing of your club.

As a part of this year’s tournament, you give all kids the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential.

You make it possible for children to replace screen time with swimming time, hiking time, and climbing time at the Soundview Family YMCA Camp Nonoma. You give them a chance to fall in love with the outdoors and outdoor pursuits that can keep them happy and healthy for a lifetime.

Join us and make a lasting impact on the children and families of your community.
