“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” — Harriet Beecher Stowe
On Aug. 20, Zack’s Team Foundation hosted its sixth annual Links Fore Recovery Golf Tournament at Four Oaks Country Club in Dracut. Each year, Zack’s angels raise an enormous amount of funds at their premier event, which helps provide life-changing treatment and sober-living funds for young adults seeking to break the chains of addiction.
More than 250 faithful golfers, friends and family came to honor and pay tribute and keep the beloved Zachary Dennis Gys’ memory alive, or to remember a loved one who has passed or is struggling with this deadly epidemic. Sadly, Zack lost his battle to addiction at the young age of 21.
The Gys and Griffin families established Zack’s Team Foundation in 2014. The mantra of Zack’s Team is “Save Our Families, Save Our Friends, Save Our Future.” And the superstar angels most certainly are every day. Since the tournament’s inception, they have awarded 250 Sober Living Scholarships.
This single event raised $65,000. Zack’s Team of angels keep shining bright for all in need! For more information, visit www.zacksteam.org.
