You wouldn’t believe the incredible work of Springfield Advocates for Youth (SAY), which has operated since 1975 by working with the Missouri Department of Youth Services and its court-appointed teens who are placed in homes in Springfield.
SAY buys beds for youths, purchases gas cards for parents to travel for parental visitation days, haircuts ($10 for boys, $20 for girls) and recently paid for a girl’s deposit and first month’s apartment rent so that she and her children had a place when they left the program.
And it’s why the the PGA Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is proud to call Springfield Advocates for Youth one of its nearly 50 children’s charities this year.
The program is led by Bob and Bonnie Samuels along with Gary and Gerrie Camp.
“This is our 15th year as one of the charities in the Price Cutter Tournament. The tournament has been a blessing to our council and the youth we serve,” Camp said. “The funds we have received from the tournament has helped change the lives of these youth.”
