Who We Are
SHARE (Serve Help And Reach Everyone) is a non-profit organization committed to fighting against the global crisis of child sex trafficking. A number of organizations, including the Department of Defense have characterized human trafficking as the world's fastest growing crime. And reports show traffickers are reaping huge profits off the crime. According to an Equality Now fact sheet, the sex trafficking industry pulls in an estimated $99 billion each year.
This tournament is unlike any other due to its commitment to integrity and transparency. This means that it’s a true score tournament without mulligans or anything that might alter the outcome. All proceeds from the Golf Classic Weekend will go towards SHARE’s continued fight against the global sex trafficking crisis. We are partnering with local organizations also fighting the crime creating an opportunity for each non-profit to raise funds to aid awareness, rescue and rehabilitation of sex trafficking victims.
Each course is divided into six-hole segments that will focus on each of these three areas: Awareness/Prevention, Rescue/Intervention and Rehabilitation/Empowerment. Organizations that fall into these categories in the fight against sex trafficking will have the ability to sell multiple single hole sponsorships to raise funds for their organization. Each of these six-hole segments will also be focused on educating the tournament participants about the category and how they can be a part of the solution.
What is it?
Sex traffickers use threats, manipulation, lies, debt bondage, and other forms of coercion to compel adults and children to engage in commercial sex acts against their will. Under U.S. law, any minor under the age of 18 years induced into commercial sex is a victim of sex trafficking — regardless of whether or not the trafficker used force, fraud, or coercion.
The situations that sex trafficking victims face vary dramatically. Many victims become romantically involved with someone who then forces or manipulates them into prostitution. Others are lured in with false promises of a job, such as modeling or dancing. Some are forced to sell sex by their parents or other family members. They may be involved in a trafficking situation for a few days or weeks, or may remain in the same trafficking situation for years.
Victims of sex trafficking can be U.S. citizens, foreign nationals, women, men and children. Vulnerable populations are frequently targeted by traffickers, including runaway and homeless youth, as well as victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, war, or social discrimination.

8 Days Film
SHARE partnered with After Eden Pictures in 2013 to produce the feature film, 8 DAYS, inspired by actual events. The film follows the life of sixteen-year-old Amber Stevens as she is drugged and brought into the world of sex trafficking that she never knew existed. This film premiered both across the United States and internationally to raise awareness on a global level. Proceeds from the film have benefited 80+ safe houses and organizations across the United States.
All proceeds from this film go to organizations that build safe houses for the survivors of this horrible crime. All shipping, handling and taxes are included in all U.S. purchases.
