News & Notes: Monarch attends the U.S. Open
Amanda VanHorne, program manager at Monarch’s Creative Arts & Community Center (MCACC) in Southern Pines, and a person we support, David Kling, had the opportunity to volunteer at the U.S. Open this month. On June 11, hey manned one of the all-access gates for golfers’ families and caddies.
On June 12, Van Horne volunteered at the NBC hospitality tent where she got to see the golfers putt the 10th hole and met Chris Paul, forward for the Los Angeles Clippers.
Terry Hardison, the art teacher at MCACC, also volunteered with her husband two days at a hospitality tent. The company Monarch volunteered through, Andy Frain Security, is donating $10 to MCACC for every hour worked by the volunteers.
