Friday, 5 July, saw the 7th Annual KYC Golf Tournament at eQuinelle. 72 Golfers took part, joined by a foursome made up of youth from the Centre who had a great afternoon in the sun.
A special thank you to principle Sponsors: Geleynse Earthworks, Rotary Club of Kemptville, and Madison Montessori School. Unfortunately, the hole-in-one car put up by Myers of Kemptville was not won – though a few came close!
Thanks also goes out to eQuinelle Golf Club’s Thursday Night Men’s League for raising money for the golf event with their donations! A great dinner, auctions and 50/50 made for an enjoyable evening, and our thanks to the staff at eQuinelle who did a great job looking after us!
The Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC) is a non-profit organization that provides youth aged 12-18 with a safe and non-judgmental environment to hang out. KYC is open 5 days a week and provides activities and programs that are available but non-compulsory for youth.
As a non-profit organization KYC relies upon dedicated volunteers to run programs and fund raising – such as the annual Golf Tournament – to meet running costs of almost $200,000. KYC is always looking for volunteer helpers and Board Members.
