On Friday, June 16, amateur golfers of all skill levels are invited to compete in the golf tournament, which will benefit The Banks Foundation and Communities in Schools – Durham.

The Triangle Golf Challenge reception and live auction on Thursday night will feature items including a 5-night cruise donated by Linda Craft & Team, a NCCU Basketball Experience with LeVelle Moton, a one week vacation to Snowshoe, WV, a UNC Basketball Experience with Phil Ford, jewelry and more. Tournament sponsors and players are invited to attend the reception for free, and the cost will be $50 per person for the general public.

The Triangle Golf Challenge golf tournament will begin on Friday, June 16 at 9:00 am with a shot-gun start. Guests of the event will have the chance to mix and mingle with celebrity hosts Phil Ford, Walter Davis and Levelle Moton. The Croasdaile Country Club golf course was designed by famed architect George Cobb for a grand opening in 1966. Architect and Cobb Associate, John Lafoy performed a very honest and essential renovation in 2002, which included a conversion to A1-A4 Bentgrass greens and provides our current course layout. A unique experience for today’s golfers, the course weaves across varying elevations and landscapes in the form of a butterfly with both nines returning to the clubhouse, yet very few contiguous holes. Therefore, players are treated to a very private golf experience. Players can register to play in the Triangle Golf Challenge golf tournament at www.trianglegolfchallenge.org.

“We are looking forward to these fun events designed to assist families in home ownership and offer youth tremendous support from the community,” said Sherrod Banks, President of The Banks Foundation. “The generosity of the players, sponsors and all who donate this year is essential for The Banks Foundation and Communities in Schools of Durham to continue to enrich lives in and around the Triangle.”

The Triangle Golf Challenge is currently soliciting donations, giveaways and sponsorships. For more details, contact Sherrod Banks at 919-474-9137 or by email to sbanks@bankslawfirm.com. To view online team registration forms and sponsorship information, visit www.trianglegolfchallenge.org.

he Triangle Golf Challenge, in support of Triangle charities, held on Friday June 14, 2013 at UNC Finley Golf Course in Chapel Hill, NC raised over $40,000 to benefit The Banks Foundation in its mission to assist families who are moving from public housing to private homeownership. The Banks Foundation also donated $3,000 of the proceeds from the tournament to Communities In Schools (CIS) of Durham, a local affiliate of the nation’s most effective dropout prevention model.
“Many of the students served by CIS are the first in their family to graduate from high school.  CIS’s programs connect students to resources and support systems to ensure they graduate and have a pathway to success after graduation,” said Elizabeth Levene, Interim Executive Director at Communities in Schools of Durham. “We are so proud to partner with and have the support of a wonderful group like the Banks Foundation.”
The Banks Foundation is now putting the funds to work, accepting grant applications for the 2013-2014 grant cycle to provide down payment assistance to families who have qualified to purchase their first home. The Foundation provides downpayment assistance to families who have received public housing or Section 8 assistance in the past, have entered into and completed a Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) contract or similar agreement, have income that is less than 80% of the area median income, and have qualified for a home loan. Grants average around $2000.
“The Banks Foundation has been a blessing to my family in a time of need,” said Ms. Tanesha Summers, a recent recipient of the Banks Foundation’s down payment assistance program who closed on her new home in November, 2013. “I am so thankful to The Banks Foundation for helping enable me to purchase a new home.”
If you or someone you know has demonstrated their desire and ability to move up and out, application information and grant guidelines are available on the Community Foundation’s website at www.thebanksfoundation.org.
