The Children’s Home of Jefferson County (CHJC) is excited to bring a lively and entertaining event to our community at CHJC’s Annual Golf Tournament. This year’s event will be hosted by our newly appointed Executive Director, Dr. Marianne “Mari” DiMatteo, MSW. Dr. Mari brings over 25 years of leadership and human services experience to CHJC. Dr. Mari looks forward to meeting each of you personally at this annual event that is so crucial to supporting the work CHJC’s team does to support our communities most vulnerable individuals. As an individual with her own lived experience as a foster child as a teenager, Dr. Mari’s passion for supporting at-risk youth and their families along with struggling adults in our community make her the perfect leader to strategically take CHJC successfully into the future.
As CHJC’s only annual major fundraiser, your support allows us to extend our mission and continually adapt and diversify to meet our community’s ever-changing needs. Sponsorship partnerships remain vital to the success of continuing CHJC’s mission of “Creating opportunities to enhance lives, one relationship at a time.” Tournament proceeds benefit CHJC’s child and family welfare-centered programs throughout Jefferson, St. Lawrence, and Lewis Counties. This year more than 3,000 children and adults will be served by our nearly 20 quality programs focused on strengthening families.
