Natalie was abandoned by her parents. She was left physically and emotionally abused and had no concept of self-worth or direction. Gateway Youth Services of Child and Family Charities took Natalie in. The therapists and staff provided her with the resources to build her life. Natalie shares, “I may not be here today if it wasn’t for Gateway and their shelter for homeless teens. I still have my moments, but I have overcome so many mental barriers that held me back. Often children who come from abusive households turn to drugs and alcohol. I can honestly say that I don’t know where I’d be if it weren’t for Child and Family Charities of Lansing.”
Fast forward to today. Natalie is a hula hooping artist specializing in fire dancing. She started “Nat Spinz” as a solo performer and hoop dancer in 2016. Natalie has self-worth and a beautiful success story. She has a supportive partner, three children, and a successful company. In 2021, Natalie received the Resilience Award from Child & Family Charities of Lansing for overcoming the childhood obstacles of homelessness, abuse, and neglect.
2022 Tri-Star Charity Pro-Am
WE’RE DRIVING CHANGE IN OUR COMMUNITY…THANKS TO YOU!
Through the Foundation, Tri-Star hosted an invite-only Pro-Am golf tournament on May 20, 2022. Sixty-three golfers and twenty-one professionals golfed with a purpose.
Thursday evening, stakeholders and participants from around the country were greeted with a welcome dinner at Horizon’s Conference Center and an inspiring and entertaining guest speaker – Tom Coyne. Coyne is an award-winning and New York Times best-selling author. His most recent A Course Called America follows Tom as he plays his way across all 50 states.
Friday’s Pro-Am brought fun and fellowship to the Saginaw Country Club. Golfers were matched up with their Pro and competed in a ‘two best balls of four’ format, followed by an exciting shootout for the top four qualifying teams.
The vision of the Pro-Am was to create a high-end, competitive golf event that would raise funds for 15 existing non-profits that address mental health concerns in teens, families, and front-line healthcare workers.
The Pro-Am was enjoyed by all and exceeded the fundraising goal of $95,000 raising $113,000 in support of the 15 organizations.
We will be hosting a September 22, 2022, cocktail hour at Apple Mountain where we will present these foundations with the proceeds we will have raised over the course of five months.
