The Valley Club is helping to host this year's round of golf to support The Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, a nonprofit organization based in Hailey that offers a variety of services. The organizers of the event are encouraging any golfers to "Chip-In" for The Advocates, Saturday, May 22, at the club north of Hailey.

"This is a special opportunity to play 18 holes of championship golf at The Valley Club ... while supporting hundreds of local women and children who rely on The Advocates to help them leave violent relationships behind and rebuild their lives," said Tournament Chair and Advocates board member Joanne Wetherell.

The Advocates has a free 24-hour hotline and an outreach program in schools and throughout the community to help counter domestic violence and help mothers and children who are victims to regain their lives. The Advocates can be reached through their website,
