In a friendly golf competition, teams playing for Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia and The Barry Robinson Center (BRC) will battle head-to-head to raise awareness and support for children’s mental health.
Golfers tee up on Friday, August 14, at Heron Ridge Golf Course in Virginia Beach. They will be vying to win the region’s Second Annual Catholic Cup Golf Tournament. In the 2019 inaugural tournament, BRC took the cup.
The two organizations share a rich history of serving the community, notably in providing mental health services for children. Creating the Catholic Cup last year extends their partnership and mission. It also provides an opportunity for golfers to support the mission while having fun on the fairways.
“Both Catholic Charities and The Barry Robinson Center have been serving our community for more than 85 years. We value our long-time collaboration and the positive contributions we’ve been able to make,” said Christopher Tan, CEO, Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities provides student assistance counseling in local Catholic schools, as well as mental health counseling for adults and children. They also provide adoption, adult and senior care, financial and housing counseling, and other health and community services.
“We recognize a growing need to provide quality, affordable and compassionate mental health services for local children in need,” said Rob McCartney, CEO, The Barry Robinson Center. “As organizations rooted in Christian values, we share a mission to improve the lives of children and their families.”
BRC provides residential mental health treatment for military-connected children and teens, from across the nation and several other countries. For local residents, the Center provides foster care and outpatient substance use treatment.
