Clint Moody Comes Home for the Kids

Portsmouth, VA - Professional golfer, Clint Moody, has won professional golf tournaments, set scoring records and holds the Montana state scoring record of an amazing 13 under par 59. He has been featured across the country in national publications, talk shows, golf blogs and radio. Clint is becoming a household name in the golf social networking world. If you ask him to share his greatest accomplishments he simply responds, "Never forgetting where I came from and giving back." Currently attracting a lot of attention as a premier up and coming golf star he also has found time to support a project close and dear to his heart.
Clint Moody will be calling upon his sponsors, friends, and fans to support his latest endeavor, The Urban Outreach Center. This is a division of Sanctuary of Hope in his hometown, Portsmouth, VA. This charity is supported entirely by donations. It counsels and encourages high risk kids toward a better future. "This is my hometown. These kids are me, 25 years ago. We have to step up and make them realize dreams do come true. We are never destined to become what we are expected to be. These young folks need a breath of confidence and someone who believes in them. I am here to share a story, and hopefully motivate some to chase their dreams." he recently stated.

Moody will be visiting the center July 9th to deliver a motivational message, sign autographs, and present a check on behalf of all the friends and fans of clintmoody.com.  His visit will be preceded by a fundraiser/auction to be held in Portsmouth on July 8th. The public is welcome to attend and participate in both events. Clint will be available to meet and greet everyone. For more information, please contact Clint at  info@clintmoodygolf.com. You may also contact, Cristina Widener of the Urban Outreach Center at 703-393-0664.
Clint is definitely setting the standard for professional athletes. Perhaps other local athletes and celebrities will take notice. Being a role model is not a choice; it is a responsibility. The city of Portsmouth is very proud of this young man and the Moody family. The will to succeed will always win out.
