Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rock, Walworth & Jefferson Counties is gearing up to host their 9th Annual Golf For Kids playday, scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 19, at Koshkonong Mounds Country Club in Fort Atkinson. Over the past eight years, more than $55,000 has been raised for youth mentoring programs in southern Wisconsin thanks to the wonderful support from area businesses, golfers and community members!
All of the proceeds raised at Golf For Kids will support the Big Brothers Big Sisters local youth mentoring programs. You can help us by participating as a golfer, sponsor or donor. Your efforts will help provide a positive role model in the life of an area youth. Adult volunteers spend quality one-on-one time with a youth between the ages of 6-14 who are primarily from single parent homes. We currently serve 130 matches in the area, but we still have more than 75 children waiting for a Big Brother or Big Sister. Together they experience new opportunities through their interaction and new friendship. Statistics have proven that this time can be the source of positive outcomes including increased self-esteem, higher academic performances and stronger communication skills.
Golf For Kids is a great way to get involved and give back through our non-profit organization! Golfer fees are only $90 each, which will include a sandwich lunch, 18 holes of golf with cart, fun hole events, door prizes, team awards and appetizers during the awards presentation. A silent auction, bucket raffles, 50/50 raffles, and magic bags and will also be available during the day for some extra fun on the course!
The golfer registration form is downloadable here for your review along with the sponsorship form. We hope your business can join us in helping make a difference in the life of a child through mentoring. Donations are also being accepted for the silent auction and raffles.
Please feel free to forward on to any colleagues or friends who you think might enjoy participating too. Registration is due on or before 9/14/13. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
