Young Life Culpeper hosts golf tournament April 27 By Jeff Say

CULPEPER TIMES STAFF WRITER

Culpeper Young Life is ready to hit the links. The youth ministry will be hosting its annual golf tournament April 27 at Meadows Farm Golf Course beginning at 8 a.m. According to Culpeper Young Life Leader Will Orr, there are two options for golfers. One is to commit to raising $500 and be able to golf all day. The other is to register for a traditional 18-hole tournament, with teams of four and captain’s choice, beginning at 1 p.m. That costs $75 for an individual or $200 for a foursome. To sign up for the tournament, visit www.culpeper.younglife.org. If a business would like to sponsor hole, that costs $250. The annual golf tournament is one of two of Young Life’s biggest fundraisers, using the funds to pay for Orr’s salary, support and development of volunteers and the many programs the ministry offers. In the high schools, Young Life has eight volunteer leaders, with Culpeper Times Aug.middle 24-30,schools. 2017 another five in •the They also have a teen mom minis-

try, Young Lives, that adds another six volunteers. “Being in the schools, we want kids to know who we are,” Orr said. “When things happen, I want it to be like when a tragedy happens, a kid knows they can talk to their parents or talk to their young life leader. We hang out at the school and hopefully the kids know us as Young Life leaders.” Orr said that it’s important to form those relationships with students as Young Life serves as another support system within the schools. He mentioned a recent tragedy at Culpeper County High School, where he quickly received a call from a guidance counselor to be on alert. “I hope this shows what Young Life can do in the school,” Orr said. “I got a call from a guidance counselor at a school informing me that it had happened. They were just letting us know because they wanted us to come in. We’re a support system that kids know us and respect us and know we are there to listen to them. That’s the big thing, just listening.” While a Christian ministry, Orr explained that members don’t have to be part of a religion to join. “Young Life hopes to reach kids

Young Life Mulch Madness Fundraiser

Culpeper Young Life is partnering with JK Enterprise to kick off their annual Mulch Madness Fundraiser. This mulch is premium quality, double-shredded, hardwood dark much and black mulch. Students sell mulch by the 2 and 3 CU FT bag at competitive prices, and deliver it themselves, with the help of willing adult volunteers. It's a way for them to raise money to go to Young Life camp by providing a quality product and the sweat-equity of free delivery. Culpeper Young Life is a Christian ministry that values faith, friendship, and fun. Young Life leaders are actively investing time with students in Culpeper County high schools and middle schools to build lasting friendships and to help them live life to the fullest. Young Life is serious about adventure. Young Life’s summer camps are a testament to that. “Ask anybody who’s been to a Young Life camp how it was, and they will tell you they had the best week of their life,” says Will Orr, Area Director, Culpeper Young Life. The challenge for kids: the camp experience cost money. "We never want money to be a reason that one of our friends can’t go to camp. We tell them ‘If money is the issue then there is no issue’. And that’s why we sell mulch. That’s where the community comes in." says Orr. All money raised in the fundraiser goes to help kids go to camp, the goal is to raise $12,500. Orders will be received now through April 23 and will be delivered every Saturday in April. For more information or to place an order, call 540-219-8043 or email ylculpeper@gmail.com.
