Yours Truly Restaurants Partner Art Shibley donated a check for $2,000 to Patricia LoPresti, Executive Director of The First Tee of Cleveland, to benefit the national youth development program in Newburgh Heights that teaches youth life skills and leadership through golf on Oct. 22.
The donation includes proceeds from the sale of sweet tea beverages from "The First Tea" promotion that took place at Yours Truly Restaurants throughout the summer.
The First Tee uses the venue of golf to promote its Nine Core Values and Life Skills curriculum. Youth in the program play on the organization's 9-hole golf course in Washington Park in Newburgh Heights.
"The guests at our restaurants embraced the opportunity to support an organization that builds positive character development with the youth in our community through the sport of golf," Shibley said.
Shibley was especially interested because he and his wife are avid golfers. Shibley put out a call to golfing buddies in Hudson and they responded with enough golf donations to fill an SUV. To learn more about The First Tee of Cleveland, visit www.thefirstteecleveland.org.
