Tee off against trafficking April 25

Eastside Women of Purpose (EWOP) is putting on their Second Annual Charity Golf Tournament, “Tee Off Against Trafficking,” at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 25 at at Willows Run in Redmond to raise funds to help STOP Human Trafficking.

EWOP is a volunteer group founded in 2007 by a young, local mom after traveling to Thailand and Cambodia on a child trafficking, fact-finding mission. EWOP is made up of local business leaders, moms, teachers, and other impassioned women. They raise awareness and funds to help curb human trafficking and exploitation around the world.

“Seattle plays host to all types of trafficking both international and domestic. By preventing trafficking internationally, we will significantly slow down the amount of people trafficked into the Northwest.”

Detective Harvey Sloan, Human Trafficking Unit

“Tee Off Against Trafficking” is a community project that has the participation of local businesses, individuals, churches and other non-profit organizations.
