A 2018 article in the Democrat and Chronicle said:
- Our overall poverty rate rose from 31.6% to 33.1%
The percentage of children living in poverty rose from 46.9% to 51.9%.
- The percentage of people living in extreme poverty, or half the poverty line, rose from 15.6% to 16.1%

Our first event happens on 9-19-2019, the tenth anniversary of our first annual charity golf tournament, and promises to be a spectacular evening, with all profits going to help kids move out of poverty and in to the bright futures they deserve.
