The 12th Annual Helping Hand Golf Tournament raises funds for the Helping Hand Ministry. An outreach of First Presbyterian Church, Helping Hand combines ministry and mission by offering short-term assistance to needy Tulsans. Launched under the supervision of the First Church Deacons in 1983, the Helping Hand Ministry has evolved into a not for profit corporation. Four mornings a week, from nine to noon, compassionate volunteers from First Church help individuals and families dealing with a temporary crisis by assisting in the payment of their utility bills, rents, prescriptions, and with the distribution of food from the pantry. 

Helping Hand has no paid staff or operating expenses—every dollar donated is disbursed in aid of the ministry’s clients. As an outreach to the Tulsa community, First Presbyterian Church provides the overhead costs for Helping Hand Ministry: space in the Bernsen Community Life Center, utilities (electricity, water, and heating), and bookkeeping assistance.

You can support this ministry by registering to play in the tournament, sponsoring a hole, or making a donation in honor or memory of a loved one. It's a great way for Sunday school classes, companies, or other groups to come together, have fun and support this important ministry.


Funding for the 12th Annual Helping Hand Golf Tournament comes from registration fees of those who participate in the tournament. Half of the total registration fee ($100) covers the cost of the tournament and luncheon, and the other half is a tax-deductible donation to Helping Hand Ministry.

Funding also comes from sponsorships. Individuals, Sunday School classes, companies, or other groups may contribute at one of the following levels, or at a level of their choice: 

  • Tournament Sponsorship ($2,500 or more) 
  • Hole Sponsorship ($1,000, $500, or $250 per hole)
  • Gift in honor or memory of an individual or group (any amount) 

Sponsors at all levels will be recognized at the awards ceremony and on all hole sponsor signs. The Sponsor fee will also include the greens fee, cart, range balls, a gift bag with a sleeve of 3 golf balls and tees, and a buffet luncheon for 6 players (Tournament Sponsorship level), 4 players ($1000 level), 2 players ($500 level), or 1 player ($250 level).

Please register as a participant, sponsor or both via the form below by Wednesday, October 9th. For more information, contact Rachael Kamaru at (918) 301-1039, or Joe Land at (918) 232-1306.
