Golfers are invited to participate in the seventeenth annual Golf Fore Kids event to benefit children and family programs in Story County. The event, sponsored by 3M, will take place Friday, Aug. 5 at Ames Golf and Country Club.
The 2015 Golf Fore Kids event raised $24,000 thanks to support from local businesses. Those dollars helped fund programs like Project Smyles at the Ames Public Library, school based mental health services at Lutheran Services in Iowa, Children in the Middle classes at Legal Aid Society, family development and self-sufficiency at Youth and Shelter Services, various after school and summer learning programs around Story County, and more.
The 18-hole, four-person best shot tournament begins at 9:30 a.m. Each hole features an opportunity to learn about United Way of Story County partner agencies. A raffle and silent auction with complimentary appetizers will follow the outing. Registration is $100 per golfer, which includes green fee, cart, lunch, and food following the tournament. Interested individuals should register online at www.uwstory.org by July 31.
