    Patch hours are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 12 to 6 p.m. The patch will remain open through Halloween or until all the pumpkins are sold.

    This is the ninth year that the church has operated its pumpkin patch in front of Vaughn's Country Store at 109 W. Trade Street in downtown Simpsonville. The pumpkin patch began as a ministry of the church to raise funds for its contribution to the annual Golden Strip Church Coalition Habitat for Humanity build. It has grown over the years to provide funding to other local non-profit agencies and ministry partners of the church.

    The patch has raised $115,000 in its eight year history that has been distributed to local ministry partners of the church. In addition to Habitat for Humanity, the beneficiaries of this year's patch proceeds include the Center for Community Services, Fountain Inn Kids Experience, James Monroe Mission House, Little Steps, Kairos Outside, Safe Harbor, Santa Cruz Hispanic Outreach, Synergy Garden and Upstate Warrior Solutions.

    The Holy Cross Pumpkin Patch has several special events planned for the patch to encourage families to attend. On Friday, October 3 the patch will hold its First Friday at the Patch festivities from 6 to 8 p.m., featuring wine tasting for adults and storytelling for the children. On Saturday, October 11 from 1 to 3 p.m., the patch will offer face painting and on Saturday, October 25 from 1 to 3 p.m., the patch will offer pumpkin carving demonstrations. The patch will also be participating in the Harvest Moon Festival on October 17 and 18 in downtown Simpsonville.

    Holy Cross Episcopal Church is located at 205 E. College Street in Simpsonville.

    Where

    Description
    Organization - 20th Anniversary
    Piedmont Care is best known as the nonprofit organization providing HIV/AIDS care in Spartanburg, Cherokee and Union counties. Since inception in 1994, we have served over 1300 people living with HIV/AIDS. Much of this is funded through federal programs and encompasses a wide range of proactive services that benefit people living with HIV/AIDS and their families.

    Our mission also addresses HIV prevention. We have served thousands of our neighbors with HIV prevention services including condom distribution and education. More than 600 people have learned their HIV status through our free HIV testing and counseling program. Unlike services relating to care, these programs must be sustained entirely by local resources.



    Statement of Need
    South Carolina ranks 8th in the nation for AIDS case rates and is 1 of 8 states with an infection rate of at least 354 HIV diagnoses/100,000 citizens. According to the CDC, of the top 20 cities in the U.S. with the highest rates of HIV infection, two are in S.C. (Columbia #15, Charleston #22) and another is our close neighbor (Charlotte #14). 18% of people in the U.S. infected with HIV are unaware of their status. In the U.S., someone is infected with HIV every 9.5 minutes.

    Additional Information
    For more information on this event, Piedmont Care, and HIV/AIDS, please contact Tracey L. Jackson, Executive Director, at (864) 582-7773 or tracey@piedmontcare.org. You may also visit our Web site at www.piedmontcare.org or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

    Upstate HR Group to Hold Benefit Golf Tournament to Fund Scholarships, Honor Colleague

    Where
    Carolina Springs Golf Club, Fountain Inn, SC [ Map ]
    Description
    GREENVILLE, SC - October 9, 2014 - The Greenville Society of Human Resource Managers (GSHRM) will host their annual benefit golf tournament to raise funds for the SHRM Foundation on Wednesday, October 22 at Carolina Springs Golf Club in Fountain Inn. Individual players and foursomes are invited to participate.

    The Andy Bindewald GSHRM Golf Tournament honors longtime GSHRM member and tournament organizer W.A. (Andy) Bindewald Jr. who passed away after a lengthy illness shortly prior to the 2013 tournament he had organized for more than two decades to benefit GSHRM's charitable causes.

    "This marks more than two decades of success for this GSHRM tournament, but is really our first year that we have held it without the leadership of Andy Bindewald," said Ed Parris, President of Phillips Staffing and chairman for the 2014 tournament. "We hope for a very strong turnout of players from across the Upstate who want to enjoy a fun and casual tournament event at the beautiful Carolina Springs Golf Club."

    The tournament annually attracts golfers from across the Upstate who seek to enjoy a casual-yet-competitive golfing event at very low cost and with a worthy cause receiving the proceeds. Largely underwritten by sponsors, golfers can register as individuals or in foursomes, and do not have to be GSHRM members to participate. The $50 fee per golfer ($200 per foursome) covers all costs including golf, cart, lunch, post-event reception, range balls, and raffle tickets for donated prizes, and all proceeds from the tournament go to the GSHRM Foundation. The non-profit Foundation advances global human capital knowledge and practice by providing thought leadership and educational support, including scholarships and research grants.

    "Golfers always enjoy this tournament at Carolina Springs," added Bob Hunt, golf tournament co-chairman. "The beautiful facilities, enjoyable course, helpful staff and wonderful hospitality make this one of the area's favorite tournaments, and we are delighted to bring our players to Fountain Inn once again."

    The tournament will begin with a check-in and registration starting at 11:30 a.m. followed by lunch and a 1 p.m. shotgun start. Awards, prizes and the reception will follow completion of the tournament in the Carolina Springs clubhouse.

    Parris invited golf enthusiasts of all ages to register for the tournament while spaces still remain. "Our focus is to bring together diverse members of the community to join with our GSHRM members for an afternoon of fun and fellowship, to celebrate Andy's memory and contributions, and to generate needed funds for the SHRM Foundation," he added. "We have plenty of playing spots available this year to ensure a fun and leisurely golfing experience for all registrants. Our focus is on making this the very best golf tournament that we possibly can."

    For additional information on GSHRM or the tournament, or to register, contact Ed Parris at (864) 242-4144 or via email at eparris@PhillipsStaffing.com.
