Oak Grove Classic Raises Money for the Treatment Center
Oak Grove Institute in Murrieta, founded in 1982, is a nonprofit, educational and residential treatment center that provides 24-hour services for children with a variety of psychological, emotional and behavioral problems.
A major fundraiser for the center, The Oak Grove Classic golf tournament, is scheduled for Oct. 1 at Temecula Creek Inn.
Check-in time is from 8 to 9:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. A dinner and awards banquet will follow at 4 p.m.
Cost, and Benefits of the Tournament
The cost for the tournament is $170 per person or $700 per foursome.
Proceeds will benefit Oak Grove's athletic program, sports and recreation, and construction of two new classrooms for children with autism.
Oak Grove recently formed a program called Angels for Oak Grove, a volunteer group that assists the adolescent treatment center in a variety of ways.
The idea was brought to life when local resident Ginnie Mueller went with a friend to apply for a job at Oak Grove.
"We have a variety of activities that could use a helping hand," said Mueller, who is the volunteer coordinator.
Volunteers are needed to help with clerical duties, event planning and teaching music, and arts and crafts, and other duties.
Classes in knitting and jewelry-making are offered to students.
The Sky High Amusement Park in Murrieta offers its facilities quarterly for a few hours to Oak Grove students.
"We would like to thank Adriana Burchard for the use of the amusement park," Mueller said.
The group meets the first Wednesday of every month at noon at 24275 Jefferson Ave., Murrieta. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a lunch.
Anyone interested in joining will be given a tour of the facility and an interview and must fill out an application form.
