Over 160 representatives from leading Kansas City area companies will spend August 24 perfecting their golf game for a great cause at the KVC Health Systems’ Kids Classic Golf Tournament at The National Golf Club of Kansas City in Parkville, Mo. The event raises funds for children and families involved in the child welfare system, including thousands of youth who have experienced abuse and neglect and are in caring KVC foster families. Participants will enjoy rare access to the typically members-only Tom Watson signature golf course. Learn more at www.kvc.org/golf.
Susan and Scott Asner are the title sponsors and tournament chairs for the 14th consecutive year. Corporate sponsors include Holmes Murphy, IMA, KC Magazine, Netsmart, Bank of Blue Valley, Enterprise, Garmin, JE Dunn, Regents Flooring Company and Treat America. Full list of sponsors below.
Twenty teams will play a morning flight beginning at 8:00 a.m. and 20 additional teams will play an afternoon flight at 1:00 p.m. Golfers will enjoy 18 holes of golf, a golf cart, golf shirt, lunch, cocktails/appetizers, gifts and prizes. Games will be set up throughout the course to help golfers improve their scores.
As a special treat this year, participants will enjoy seeing professional golf entertainer Patrick J. Cocherl III, better known as “Paddy Whack.” Paddy is famous for his one-of-a-kind brand of trick shots, powerful long drives and imitations of Hollywood actors and characters. Each flight of golfers will see a brief Paddy Whack show and have a chance to get assistance from Paddy on the golf course. Learn more at paddywhackgolf.com.
Golfers will also have a chance to enter a drawing to drive a 2016 Mercedes C300W4 for one year. More information on the drawing is at www.kvc.org/car.
