SALISBURY, MD – September 28, 2021 – The Salvation Army Lower Eastern Shore will host the annual “Fore The Kids” golf tournament on October 15, 2021. The annual golf tournament raises much needed funds in support of youth and family programs for The Salvation Army.
The golf tournament will be held at the Green Hill Country Club in Quantico, MD, starting at 8 a.m. with a shotgun scramble to start. Following play there will be lunch, awards and a silent auction.

The tournament is a vital component of The Salvation Army’s annual campaign to raise funds and create awareness of its programs. Corps Officer Capt. Matthew Trantham says “Events like this allow us to continue to financially support our initiatives while also generating excitement around opportunities to support our local youth programs.”
The Salvation Army Lower Eastern Shore provides age appropriate, evidenced based programming to over 1,000 youth each year. The youth have a safe, educational, and inspiring environment where they are encouraged to set goals and reach for their dreams.
