November 25, 2014 

Milwaukee, WI - IOU Sports recognizes the importance of partnering with other community organizations to provide the best services and experiences possible to our youth and their families.

Below is just one of the many "non-profit friends" we would like to recognize for their partnership.

Bridging the Gap Learning Center, Inc. (BTG) is a 501c3 organization with a mission to educate, inspire and equip underserved youth and adults with the necessary tools and resources to develop and maintain successful futures and strong, productive communities. This is accomplished through a full range of educational, developmental and training programs and services.

In June of 2015, we will launch, “The Girls Golf Enrichment Program” to address the benefit of golf to girls ages 6 – 12 motivating them to continue their education through accessing physical fitness and life lessons through golf.  The Girls Golf Enrichment Program will give girls a rare opportunity to get the kind of training in which they will flourish and reach their potentials to compete. Girls will be taught the basic fundamentals of the game along with swing techniques, rules and leadership etiquette. 

We are seeking equipment and or monetary donations to assist in launching this program.  Please fill out the donation form to help us prepare 50 girls to walk out on the Golf Course!  Thank You!

We will need the following:

Visors / Caps

Golf Gloves (left and right)
