CitySquare Announces First Annual Fundraiser; Family Friendly Event, June 4

“Swing for Success” is the theme for a new event set for Saturday, June 4, at Pine Ridge Golf Course’s Top Tracer range, better known as “The Range at the Ridge.” A family-friendly event, the Top Tracer scramble will play a virtual representation of Pebble Beach.

Each team will be composed of four golfers, with one flight teeing off at 6:00 pm and the second flight at 7:45 pm. Burgerland provides the meal, and Here’s the Scoop Ice Cream Truck provides the dessert. Retro Class Entertainment, Rydell Martin, will be providing entertainment for the evening.

Event Chair Beth Bray said, “This is a unique opportunity for our community to bring their families and friends out to enjoy an evening of virtual golf, good food, kids activities, music, and support a wonderful cause.”

“So many people in our community may know of CitySquare, located at 2515 Bonham Street, but have no real knowledge of the scope of services provided Monday through Friday, 9 am until 6 pm,” stressed Rochelle Hodge, Advisory Council Chair. In 2021 CitySquare served 518 families providing 755 showers and 471 loads of laundry. These numbers were a 300% increase over 2020, and thus far, in 2022, the numbers are on track to exceed last year’s figures. She added, “Not only do we serve adults in our community, but we also serve teens. Each weekday, teens 13-18 are brought by PISD bus to our Teen Center where they receive a meal, tutoring, and enrichment activities.” 

CitySquare also has an expansive clothes closet for all ages and serves as a community activity center available for summer youth camps, sports teams, and events. These services are accessible to the community through the generous support of businesses, industries, individuals, partners, and kind hearts beyond Lamar County.

Swing for Success is currently seeking sponsorships for the various levels: $2000, $1000, $750, $400, $200, and $100. Each group of underwriting comes with unique benefits. To receive more information or register to take part, contact or call CitySquare, at 903-706-2990 or reach out on Facebook.

As a family-friendly event, even if you are not a golfer but want to support this worthy cause, adult tickets for food and dessert are $30, and kid’s tickets are $15-under two is free. All donations are tax-deductible. You may mail any gifts to CitySquare, PO Box 6431, Paris, TX 75461-6431.
