14th annual Golf FORE Children Set for August 15th, 2017

Posted by Jarrad Bittner and Harriet Redman
The 14th annual Golf FORE Children event will bring smiles to the participants the day of the event and smiles to children of the Fox Cities throughout the rest of the year. 
This year’s event is taking place on August 15th, 2017 at Royal St. Patrick’s Golf Links. Thanks to the help of local businesses, individuals and foundations, Golf Fore Children has raised over $230,000 to support local organizations with a mission to serve the youth in our community. This year’s event will benefit the Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis Club, The Building for Kids Children’s Museum, and WisconSibs, Inc.
  • Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Our local chapter donates hundreds of service hours each year and raises funds to support a wide variety of initiatives and organizations in the Fox Valley, including the Salvation Army, Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, Old Glory Honor Flights, Harbor House and many more.
  • The Building for Kids Children’s Museum empowers children, engages parents and energizes communities. As a not-for-profit children’s museum that serves over 100,000 visitors each year, we accomplish this mission through providing a safe space for families to learn through play by exploring hands-on, educational exhibits, as well as curriculum-based classes for field trips, special programs and family events.
  • WisconSibs, Inc. is the first independent not-for-profit in the country dedicated to the interests of siblings of people with developmental disabilities like autism, Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy, as well as long-term illnesses and mental health concerns from childhood through adulthood. Over the years we have served hundreds of siblings through workshops, Sib Camps, Teen Sibling Leadership programs, social activities for families of children with disabilities, and future planning and peer support as siblings become adults.
 
To continue the success of Golf Fore Children, we are asking you and your company for support. Many opportunities for involvement are available, including a financial sponsorship donation, sponsoring a golfer or foursome, and/or donating an item for the raffle.
