Take a Swing at Something Special for Father’s Day

This Father’s Day, give Dad a day off to tee it up!  Sign him up today for a round of golf at the Love Fund’s 27th Annual Golf Classic, set for Friday, June 24th at Sycamore Ridge Golf Course in Spring Hill, KS.  The tournament will feature local Fox 4 on-air favorites, prizes, great food and top-notch golfer’s swag, plus he might even drive away in a new Lexus!  Better yet, he may even win the opportunity to play 54-holes of golf in Pebble Beach and vie for a $100,000 charity purse!

The best part of your gift is that he will be helping the Love Fund for Children help thousands of local kids in need.  The Love Fund receives no state or government funding, yet helps more than 3,000 children in our community each and every year and has been doing so since 1982.

Sponsors and players in the the Love Fund’s charitable golf tournament help provide children with clothing, shoes, medical equipment, therapeutic tools, mobility assistance, education supplies, assistive technology, glasses, eye exams, hearing aids, hygiene items and so much more.

Indulge him in a day off at the golf course and you’ll be helping thousands of children right here in our community at the same time.
