Gateway Sertoma Golfs fore Tabitha Meals on Wheels

Lincoln’s Gateway Sertoma Club and nonprofit Tabitha, Nebraska’s industry-leading Senior Care provider, joined forces and welcomed golfers to play for a cause. The 19th annual golf event at Lincoln’s NuMark Golf Course had a record turnout, with 52 teams registered to support Tabitha Meals on Wheels. The event raised over $75,000 for this lifeline program, which has served the Lincoln community for 54 years and proved vital during the pandemic.

The donations from the outing help provide 12,000 meals, safety checks and friendly visits to 500+ Lincoln neighbors who rely on this daily delivery to remain independent and safe at home. Eighty-two percent of meal recipients say a volunteer is often the only face-to-face interaction they have in a day. In addition, 81 percent of recipients are unable to afford the cost of a meal. As Tabitha turns no one in need away from a nutritious meal, community contributions are instrumental in ensuring everyone is served.

“It was great to responsibly pull together with such a faithful and generous group of supporters and wonderful to see old friends and new,” shared Tabitha President and CEO Christie Hinrichs. “This long-time collaboration with Gateway Sertoma and many other local community members allows Tabitha to live into our PURPOSE: Live Joyfully, Age Gratefully, and continue providing the services seniors need in this very challenging and unpredictable time and beyond. We feel so blessed to live in a community where supporting seniors is a top priority.”

Gateway Sertoma was founded as a service club in Lincoln in 1961. The group’s mission is “service to mankind,” motivating members to volunteer service and fundraising for community programs in need. Nineteen years ago, the group combined their love of service with their love of golf by hosting this charity golf tournament to benefit the mission of Tabitha. Members turned to Tabitha to help coordinate the tournament with proceeds benefiting first Tabitha Hospice and today, Tabitha Meals on Wheels.

Hinrichs notes, “We are deeply grateful that the Gateway Sertomans have picked supporting seniors through Tabitha as their charitable commitment.”
