TIMONIUM, Md. (WJZ)–It’s a fun event with a serious purpose, and it happens Saturday at Pine Ridge Golf Course in Timonium.
Ron Matz says check the closet for some special shoes and get ready for High Heels for Hope.
They’ll be driving for dollars at Pine Ridge Golf Course. It’s the fourth annual High Heels for Hope, a benefit for House of Ruth Maryland.
“We’re so happy Pine Ridge is doing this event to benefit the House of Ruth Maryland. The House of Ruth is the state’s most comprehensive service and advocacy organization for victims of intimate partner violence and their children,” said Terri Wurmser, House of Ruth Maryland.
Wearing high heels is a struggle, but the course is ready.
Getting to the tee is a real challenge. If you need heels, they have them donated by SRI and DSW.
“We’re appreciative of that,” Wurmser said.
“We’ll have some shoes for people to try. If they have some nice high heels at home, they’re welcome to bring those. We’re also accepting gently worn shoes this year for the House of Ruth,” said Jon Ladd, executive director of Classic Five.
Even if you’re not playing you can still come to Pine Ridge and donate any kind of women’s shoes to the House of Ruth.
“This year individuals can donate shoes. They will be used by our clients. We would love for you to come out to Pine Ridge, and even if you don’t play golf, bring us some shoes,” Wurmser said.
You get to hit five balls for$20. There will be two divisions for women and men.
“The winner in each division gets a free foursome of golf at any of our courses along with a $150 range card,” Ladd said.
It’s a good time for a great cause.
“Bring your high heels. Bring your good naturedness. We have a lot of fun with this. We always have a great time,” Ladd said.
WJZ’s Jessica Kartalija will emcee Saturday’s High Heels for Hope. It’s from 1 to 4 p.m. at Pine Ridge Golf Course in Timonium.
