Tee Off Fore Tri-County Mental Health swings into Northland

Tri-County Mental Health is hosting Tee Off Fore Tri-County Mental Health, a community fundraiser at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 16, at T-Shotz, a new interactive golf venue at 660 NW Metro North Drive.

Tom Petrizzo, CEO of Tri-County, helped develop the idea for the community fundraiser along with a committee of staff, board of directors and community supporters, according to a press release.

“During the current health crisis, our focus remains on meeting the mental health needs of the communities we serve. Unfortunately, traditional charity events have been limited this year and we are excited to be among the first nonprofits to work with this outdoor venue,” he said.

Newly opened in October, T-Shotz is a mostly outdoor golf, entertainment and restaurant venue.

“Most importantly, this new event is an opportunity for our community to support Tri-County and help fill the gap on services compromised because of the effects of COVID-19,” Petrizzo added.

Donations, ticket sales and sponsorships help fund items such as emergency utility assistance for Northland families during the winter months, holiday gifts and necessities for Tri-County families during the annual holiday gift donation project, clothing assistance for Tri-County clients searching for employment and sensory devices for youth clients.

Tee Off Fore Tri-County Mental Health will adhere to strict physical distancing guidelines including face covering requirements and provide hand sanitizing stations throughout the event.
