Victims of domestic violence or sexual assault/rape in the area have immediate assistance and resources available to them though the New Horizons Crisis Center in Richfield, which serves Sevier, Wayne, Sanpete, Millard, and Piute Counties. The center is primarily funded by federal and state grants, but also depends on private donations to assist in serving those in need. Redmond Inc’s SOAR foundation has volunteered to host a charity golf tournament with all proceeds going directly towards these victims at the crisis center.
The event will be held Friday, June 19 at 10:00 a.m. at the Cove View Golf Course in Richfield. The four-man scramble, 18- hole tournament will include lunch, raffle drawings, and big prizes for the winners, and those interested need to RSVP as soon as possible by calling 529-7402. The cost is $300 for a foursome team.
Redmond has a long-standing relationship with New Horizons and has assisted in supporting them for several years, which has been appreciated.
“They’ve always been good to help when we need it,” said New Horizons Director Debbie Mayo. “Private donations are always so appreciated. We are a 45 bed facility, and this is the first year we’ve officially been ‘full’ — we had 51 victims here at one time.”
This past year the center has assisted over 150 women, 10 men, and 81 children.
“We provide crisis intervention for victims and assist them by providing shelter, safety plans, and resources for those in need,” said Mayo. “Depending on the victim’s circumstances, they may be here as long as thirty days, and our services have proven valuable to many. We’re grateful to Redmond for their willingness to help.”
