(Kemptville) – The 2016 Champions for Kids Foundation (C4K) Golf Tournament has raised about $37,500 to help area children.

More than 100 golfers took to the links at the eQuinelle Golf Club on July 6, enjoying 18 holes of golf, a steak dinner, and a silent auction featuring a variety of items ranging from watches to hotel stays. Their participation, as well as tournament sponsorships from a number of area businesses, helped generate the total.

“We are extremely pleased with the support we received this year from players as well as the many businesses that graciously sponsored our event,” said C4K President Carole Dufort. “The money raised will help us improve the childhood experience for many youth in our area.”

The winning team at this year’s tournament was the foursome of Shawn Pankow, Frazer Smith, Ron Brus, and Barry Pankow. The team shot 14-under to take this year’s event.

C4K is a charity formed in January 2008 to discreetly help level the playing field for UCDSB children and their families. Although the charity’s main focus is to assist families in allowing their children to participate in sports, arts and other fun activities outside of school hours, it also meets unique needs like covering minor medical expenses (i.e. eyeglasses), providing gas cards to parents with a child in the hospital, or purchasing a winter coat for a child who needs warmth. All assistance is kept confidential.
