Parsley Family Names Dementia Day Center as the Recipient for their 10th Anniversary Charity Golf Classic

Houston, TX — The Parsley Charity Golf Classic will be held on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, at Redstone Golf Club in Houston, Texas. All proceeds from the four-person golf scramble will create long-term benefit for the Day Center at Sheltering Arms Senior Services, a 120-year old organization serving Seniors including those with Dementia, the disease that took the life of the family’s patriarch, Robert Parsley.

Check-in, open driving range and putting green, a lunch buffet, and putting contest will all be available between 10:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Due to an overwhelming response, all individual player spots have been filled for the tournament. However, sponsorship opportunities, which also include access to exclusive tournament events, are still available. All donations are tax deductible. Details and registration forms are available at or by emailing Cabell Walker at

The Parsley Charity Golf Classic continues a legacy of giving in the Parsley family that began with Georganna and Robert Parsley. Supporters of countless causes throughout their 48-year marriage, they contributed financial gifts, moral support, and most importantly, their time and effort to local area organizations. Today, their ten children and 32 grandchildren recognize their achievements and honor their memory through this annual Houston event. The family has focused on Catholic high schools, and medical and community social services organizations. Past event beneficiaries include the St. Vincent de Paul Society, San Jose Clinic, and Cristo Rey Jesuit.

This year’s benefiting organization is Sheltering Arms Senior Services, a division of Neighborhood Centers Inc. Sheltering Arms has been dedicated to improving the independence and quality of life for Houston’s older adults since 1893. Services offered along the agency’s continuum of care address basic needs, promote good health, ensure safety and expert care for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, and provide support for family caregivers.
