The Project EverGreen Golf Classic supporting the mission of creating a greener, healthier, cooler Earth will be held on September 18, 2023, at the Lochmere Golf Club in Cary, North Carolina. Last year’s outing attracted raised nearly $20,000 to support Project EverGreen’s mission.
Registration is $125 per golfer and $500 for a foursome for the 11:00 a.m. shotgun start. All registered golfers receive 18 holes of golf with cart, lunch, post-round reception, gift bag, and non-alcoholic beverages. The deadline for registering is September 8.
Sponsorships are also available for companies looking to support the Project EverGreen mission.
“We are excited to combine the passion our volunteers and donors have for golf and the great outdoors with supporting Project EverGreen’s mission to create a greener, healthier, cooler Earth,” said Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “The work that is done to grow a healthier green space footprint through the GreenCare for Communities and GreenCare for Troops initiatives benefits communities and military families across the country.”

Why Green Spaces Matter
Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Communities initiative revitalizes community green spaces. We’ve restored nearly 200 million square feet of healthy grass since 2008. That generates clean air for 320,000 people to breath daily.
Green spaces, including parks, gardens, and healthy lawns and yards, are essential to communities for several reasons.
Improved Physical and Mental Health – Green spaces provide opportunities for physical activity, such as jogging, walking, and cycling, which can help reduce the risk of obesity, heart disease, and other health problems. Green spaces can also have a positive impact on mental health, providing opportunities for relaxation, stress relief, and social interaction.
Increased Property Values – Green spaces can increase the value of nearby properties by providing an attractive and desirable environment. Homes that are located close to parks or other green spaces are often in high demand, leading to higher property values.
Environmental Benefits – Green spaces help to reduce air pollution and mitigate the effects of climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. They also provide important habitats for wildlife and contribute to biodiversity.
Social Connection – Green spaces can bring communities together by providing opportunities for social interaction and recreation. They can also serve as venues for community events, such as festivals and concerts, which help to strengthen community ties.
Overall, green spaces play a crucial role in creating healthy, sustainable, and thriving communities. Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Communities unites local businesses, community groups, volunteers and in-kind resources to create modern recreational green spaces
