What Is Banking For Birdies?
Each month, the Henry House will choose a community-based children's organization to pledge assistance to through J.J. Henry's performance on the golf course. As a fun way to incorporate J.J.'s golf and our Henry House mission, we will find a tangible need for these groups prior to each month and pledge one of those items per birdie that J.J. Henry makes on the PGA Tour circuit that month. Eagles count double! We are so excited to work closely to fill special needs of these groups and touch the lives of many youth in need. Follow our counts on Facebook and Twitter for monthly commitments and real-time updates!
Totals From Previous Months
February 2015 - Ronald McDonald House For Worth
The Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth provides all the comforts of home to children and their families while they are staying at our House. Many times our families are required to stay for weeks or even months, depending on their child’s condition.
This year, RMHFW will be opening a Business Center with an electronic “Hub” for all families to use. The electronic “Hub” will include computers, Kindles and iPads for families to check out for use during their stay. The new program will allow families and children to access to entertainment and educational resources.
Amazon gift card would be used by RMHFW staff to purchase games, music and books for the electronics, so they would be equipped with resources for our families to enjoy. This program will provide an outlet for families to release stress and have fun.
January 2015 - Wakeman Boys and Girls Club
This is a special partnership as JJ himself grew up going to the Wakeman club and is in the Wakeman Hall of Fame: Henry recalls with fond memories his years at the Wakeman Boys & Girls Club learning sportsmanship, competitiveness and the importance of community. Starting to visit Wakeman as an 8-year old, Henry began playing basketball and eventually lacrosse and soccer at the Club and was very involved in many after school activities. Henry’s parents would drop off a young Henry knowing he was safe and having fun playing the sports he loved. Henry went on to coach pewee basketball teams as a high school student, developing friendships and a sense for competition that he still carries as a PGA Tour professional to date.
