Come be a Champion at the 9th Annual Key of Hope Charity Golf Scramble

“Every child deserves a champion — an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.”
Rita Pierson, third-generation educator

Founded in 2008 by former Michigan natives Rachel and Dan Smither, Key of Hope is a nonprofit organization that takes a holistic approach to impacting the lives of vulnerable children living in AIDS-stricken Durban, South Africa. Through ongoing household support, school fees assistance, choir, tutoring, and a variety of other ways, Key of Hope is building long-term relationships that matter in a corner of the world that rarely registers on anyone’s radar.
