KVC Charity Golf Tournament benefits foster children

KVC Shawnee County Golf For Kids 2nd Annual Golf Tournament will host dozens of golfers on September 17 in a charity golf game to raise money for foster children and teens who have experienced mental health crisis or child abuse, neglect and other family challenges. Participants will play at the Shawnee Country Club in Topeka, KS.  All proceeds will remain in Shawnee County to specifically assist youth in foster care.

Participants will have access to a cart and 18 holes of golf, multiple opportunities to win gifts and prizes through Silent Auction and drawings, receive complimentary beverages and meals, and take home deluxe golf gifts. Signage throughout the course will be set up to honor those businesses and organizations that have supported the tournament, making it possible for KVC to serve the families and children in crisis.
