Tee Off ‘FORE’ Education Golf Tournament for the Kwame Foundation to help fund scholarships for students who may not be able to attend college due to finances

The Kwame Foundation will host its 18th Annual Golf Tournament on Thursday, August 25, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Norman K. Probstein Golf Course in Forest Park. This year the theme is “Te Off ‘FORE’ Education”. Proceeds will be used to fund scholarships for students who might not otherwise attend university due to financial constraints.

This year’s goal is to raise $120,000. The Kwame Foundation has endowed approximately $3 million in scholarships and grants at colleges and universities that improve educational opportunities for minority and college-bound first-generation students. The foundation also sponsors an annual spring break tour of historically black colleges and universities for local students.

Registration is open for foursomes and individual players. The tournament is aimed at experienced golfers as well as beginners. Non-golfers can participate and support the cause by attending the cocktail.

There are several sponsorship opportunities from $150 to $10,000 still available, ranging from hole sponsor to presenting sponsor. In addition to competitive golf, there will be raffles, games, a live auction, as well as opportunities to further support the future success of bright and enthusiastic students through scholarships.

The event of the year sponsors are RJP Electric, Burns & McDonnell, Metropolitan Sewer District, Regional Business Council, Kaiser Electric, Alberici, Archview Construction, Crawford, Murphy, & Tilly, Inc, D&F Constructors, Webb Engineering, BSI Constructors, Clay Piping Systems, Ed & Laura Ryan, and HR Green, Inc. and Maggie O’Brien’s.
