14th ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT FUNDRAISER
St. Louis August 2, 2017. – The Kwame Foundation will host its 14TH Fourth Annual TEE OFF FORE EDUCATION GOLF TOURNAMENT on Thursday, August 24, 2017. The Tournament is a fun-filled event which allows you to golf and give back at the same time.
The year’s Golf Tournament will again focus on providing college scholarships and grants to enable youth to achieve their dreams. Support of this event will help the Foundation continue to fulfill its mission, that all public-school students should be afforded the opportunity to advance to their full potential.
Over the past 13 years, the Kwame Foundation has distributed over $1.5 million in scholarships enabling many recipients to attend more than 25 colleges and universities. This year we have stepped up our goal and are looking to raise $300,000. The funds raised from this event allow us to continue to build young minds and provide them with the opportunity to learn, grow and achieve their professional goals.
