Normally Amberly’s Place holds Week in Paradise, its biggest fundraiser of the year, in June, but with the COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown of businesses, schools and venues, the organization decided to hold off until a better time.

Now is that time. People are tired of staying home and antsy for a great family vacation to a safe location where social distancing is not a problem.

More importantly, even though the pandemic is not over, Amberly’s Place needs to generate funds to ensure that it can continue to offer the same high quality of care to victims of abuse that it has provided to the community for over 20 years

With Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, Amberly’s Place invites community members to “adopt” local families who have experienced abuse. Their donations will help the family advocacy center provide holiday meal baskets to those families who would otherwise not have a Thanksgiving Day.

Diane Umphress, executive director of Amberly’s Place, pointed out that often victims not only leave behind the abuse, but they also lose their source of financial support. As a result, this holiday season, “many families will be left without any type of financial support at all due to abuse,” she said. “As a community, we continue to need your help and support to keep up with the needs of those we serve.”

A large part of the tournaments success is due to the sponsorship from Genesis of Yuma. The new car dealership helped in a variety of ways to help Desert Hills create a wonderful event.

“(Genesis) was really excited to get on board and partner with the Sunbelt Senior Tour,” Smith said. “They provided signage and support for us. We think they’re going to continue on next year.”

Along with the spectacular golf that was played over the three days, this golf tournament displayed even further commitment towards their effort in helping the Yuma community.

Amberly’s Place in Yuma was the charity partner with the Sunbelt Senior Tour this week.

The social service organization houses professionals who are trained in handling victims of child abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse. The special training helps reduce the trauma to the victim.

“Amberly’s Place is unfortunately a needed entity in our community and other communities,” Smith said. “We were able to raise $1,385 for Amberly’s place. That charity isn’t just a charity, it’s a lifeblood. It saves peoples lives. We’re pleased to have had them as our partner.”

Desert Hills will be having another partnership with Amberly’s Place during its “Million Dollar Shootout” tournament right after Christmas.
