Swing-For-Hope Golf Challenge
Every August, around 100 players come out to The University of Georgia Golf Course for a fundraising day of golf for a great cause! The longest running golf tournament in Athens, Swing-Fore-Hope is a well-loved tradition for our supporters and sponsors. Our 2018 tournament raised almost $13,000 to support our mission to prevent poverty and homelessness in our great city and surrounding counties.

The Ark honors mothers and grandmothers who otherwise may not be celebrated for Mother's Day by compiling a list of worthy ladies for "adoption". Members of the community, for a donation of $25, "adopt" a mom, who receives fresh flowers and a hand-written card for Mother's Day. All proceeds benefit our Single Working Mother's Fund.
