Saturday October 22 is the Shoes for Food fund raiser for the Back Pack Pals charity in Southern Pines just minutes from Pinehurst, NC.
Starting at 9:00 Am on Saturday is the horseshoe tournament known as “Shoes for Food” which raises money for Thanksgiving dinners for families whose children participate in the Pinehurst area schools program to bring food to children who don’t get enough to eat on the weekend. The event will take place at Memorial Park in Southern Pines and the cost per team is $50 with room for a total of 64 teams.
Back Pack Pals collects food donations and money to give bags of food to children in the Pinehurst/Moore County schools who may not get enough to eat over the weekend. Counselors in the schools determine which children are eligible for the program and they get permission from the parents or guardians for the children to participate.
This fund raiser raises money through the horseshoe tournament to help provide Thanksgiving for the families of these children. This is a fun thing to do in the Pinehurst area and helps local families. Unfortunately the deadline has passed to sign up, but you can still come out to Memorial Park to watch the fun.
