YWCA Board Hosting Golf Tournament May 6 To Celebrate 155 years of Service

Proceeds to Support Two YWCA Youth Programs

 Springfield—YWCA Board Chair Kim Casineau has announced the hosting of the YWCA Golf Tournament to be held at the Springfield Country Club in West Springfield on Monday, May 6 with registration now open online at

Proceeds of the charity golf tournament will go towards support of the Children Who Witness Violence (CWWV) program that offers therapy for children who have witnessed or experienced abuse and violence. The Healthy and Empowering Relationship Education (H.E.R.E.) program of the YWCA, that supports Springfield middle and high schoolers to learn about healthy relationships and friendships, will also benefit from proceeds raised at the tournament.

According to Casineau, organizer of the event, “the leadership work the YWCA is doing in addressing domestic and sexual violence is critically important.  These two youth-oriented programs are providing much needed support and resources in our community. I encourage all who are interested in supporting our event to contact me at or register on the website. We need golfers, cash donations and donations for our raffle. My goal is to raise awareness to all the great work the YW does for our community in a fun way. Please join us on May 6 in support of these very worthy programs.”

Cost per golfer to participate in the tournament is $155, and includes golf, cart, lunch, dinner, and a ¼ zip jacket. There will be a raffle and cash bar at the country club. Individuals or organizations interested in registering or sponsoring the event can go online to

Headquartered in Springfield, the YWCA also provides services and offers programming to children and women in crisis in Northampton, Westfield, Belchertown, and Holyoke.
