Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Golf for Kids

Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Golf for Kids Davis Love III Scholarships Awarded to Teens, enabling Youth to "Claim Their Future"

 
PRLog - Jan. 29, 2013 - MONTEREY, Calif. -- For 25 years, Monterey Peninsula Country Club (MPCC) has hosted Golf for Kids for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County supporting the Club's mission to "Inspire and empower the youth of Monterey County to realize their full potential to become responsible, healthy, productive and successful citizens." Davis Love III, a long-time supporter of the Club has been instrumental in bringing educational opportunities to qualified teens, ready to begin their college education.  To date 28 teens have been awarded the Davis Love III Scholarship.

Golf for Kids is a joint effort with the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County to help local youth complete a higher education. The support and generosity of the touring PGA professionals and sponsors of this golf tournament have made the tournament an overwhelming success over the years, raising over $3.2 million for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County since its inception. Twenty-five percent of the net proceeds from the tournament are placed directly into the scholarship fund for Boys & Girls Club teens, and remaining funds support BGCMC's after-school and summer enrichment programs.

Entry fees include a clinic hosted by Davis Love III, followed by a Pro-Am golf tournament on the Dunes and Shore courses of MPCC, culminating with a cocktail reception and the Davis Love III Scholarship awards ceremony.
