Thank you for attending

Swing For The Cause - Family Fun Jamboree

A Benefit for Adam's Tree House

Swing For The Cause on June 23, 2017 was a success. The golf tournament stretched across an 84-year-old classic course, featuring a Civil War Era Barn. Not only was it a beautiful day for golfing, it was a beautiful day to come together as a community and celebrate. Everyone in attendance enjoyed the picturesque golf course at ‘The Rock,’ the Rockingham Country Club. There was a family BBQ with great golf, music, food, and company—all for a great cause!

In addition to winning amazing prizes at the silent auction, like Red Sox tickets, participants were supporting a positive initiative: Adam’s Tree House. Adam’s Tree House is Southern District YMCA’s upcoming venture: an all-accessible tree house for children to enjoy at YMCA Camp Lincoln. Through a partnership with the Adam McPhee Memorial Foundation, and more events like Swing For The Cause, Southern District YMCA hopes to raise the full $50,000 for construction of the tree house. This remarkable tree house will ensure that children of all ages and abilities can experience the treetops—Adam’s Tree House will show children that there are no limits to what they, or a community, can accomplish.

Southern District YMCA would like to thank everyone who came to Swing For The Cause, and extend a special thank you to all sponsors, donors, participants, and volunteers! Together, we raised $10,119 for Adam's Tree House. Adam lived a life of no limits; he was the first to graduate from Epping High School with a special inclusion program. Beyond his perseverance in school, he constantly worked to raise empathy and awareness; as a community, we are so blessed to be able to continue to make a positive mark in his name. Thank you for beginning this journey to the treetops. For more information, or to make a donation for Adam’s Tree House, please click here!

Southern District YMCA invites you to look out for future events that will support Adam’s Tree House, and to save the date for next year's golf tournament: June 22, 2018! If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jan Merrow at
