A Financial Grant from the BallenIsles Charities Foundation provides funding for the Feed the Hungry Pantry food program.Every month, as part of its mission to end hunger in Palm Beach County, the Feed the Hungry Pantry gives boxes and bags packed with free, healthy food to over 2,200 families in need. A Financial Grant from the BallenIsles Charities Foundation provides funding for the food program.

On Saturday, June 23, as around 150 families gathered along a pantry line in West Palm Beach to receive the free food, volunteers from BallenIsles were there to help.

BallenIsles Charities Foundation President Mark Freeman, BallenIsles Country Club Executive Chef Gregory, Assistant General Manager Peter Serena, and Director of Marketing Brian Merbler joined other Feed the Hungry Pantry volunteers in helping bag fresh foods. They worked on the assembly line, filling arriving vehicles with around 100 pounds of staples for families in need. 

This was the second pantry line this month for families that registered to get fresh foods, including meats, vegetables, fruits and eggs.  It followed last week's pantry which helped feed more than 600 families.

"Feed the Hungry has helped feed thousands of Palm Beach County residents this month alone," Co-Founder Dan Shorter said. In addition, Feed the Hungry sent food for 96 home bound elderly and veterans.

"Today's effort further underlines the caring community that is BallenIsles and I also want to thank the BallenIsles Country Club and the BallenIsles Community Association for making this happen," Mr. Freeman said.

The BallenIsles Charities Foundation's Grant to Feed the Hungry is one of forty-six grants, totaling a record $575,000awarded this year. Since its formation by BallenIsles residents, more than $2.3 million has been awarded in financial grants to local non-profits and civic organizations.

Stay Cool!

Regulating your body temperature is important for any outdoor activity that you do, and golf is no exception. Do everything that you can to keep your cool, including drinking water and sports drinks, playing early in the day or late in the evening to avoid the sun, and utilizing sunscreen.

Hit It Hard!

When it comes to driving the ball as far as it can go, many factors go into every element involved. It would stand to reason that the harder that you hit the ball, the farther that it would travel, when it’s actually the reverse that’s true. Tension in the hands and arms cuts down on speed, so remember to keep your arms and hands relaxed when you’re ready to putt.

Keep Your Stance!  

You may recognize the proper golf stance, but it’s important to improve it as you go along. Remember to keep your stance by standing tall and tilting forward at the hip. This allows you to have enough control to drive the ball as far as you need to without hurting yourself. Pay a visit to the practice facility at BallenIsles to meet with a professional golf staff member who can advise you on the proper stance.
