ValleyStar RISE Foundation hosts annual “Big Tee Off” Golf Tournament in support of Children’s Miracle Network

MARTINSVILLE, VA (April 5, 2024)The ValleyStar RISE Foundation is thrilled to announce the return of  its annual golf tournament, the “Big Tee Off,” in support of the Children’s Miracle Network.  The event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 9, 2024, at the prestigious Chatmoss  Country Club in Martinsville, Virginia. In case of inclement weather, a rain date has been  scheduled for Thursday, May 16, 2024. 

The “Big Tee Off” is not merely a day on the greens; it serves as a profound opportunity to  make a tangible impact in the lives of children in need. Organized by the ValleyStar RISE  Foundation, the charitable arm of ValleyStar Credit Union, the tournament aims to raise  funds for the purchase of life-saving medical equipment at Carilion Children’s Hospital in  Roanoke, Virginia. Carilion Children’s annually treats over 40,000 children from 40 counties  in Virginia and neighboring states, offering essential medical care to those who require it  most. 

The contributions from the RISE Foundation extend beyond medical assistance. The funds  also actively support local college students by providing scholarships at Patrick & Henry  Community College. This initiative not only ensures that the funds remain within the  community but also plays a pivotal role in fostering educational opportunities for students  residing in areas served by ValleyStar. It highlights yet another avenue through which  ValleyStar demonstrates its unwavering commitment to giving back to the community. 

“We are delighted to host the ‘Big Tee Off’ once again, and we extend our gratitude to all  participants and sponsors for their generous support,” said Rachael Williams, President of  the ValleyStar RISE Foundation. “Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives  of children and young adults in our community.”
