Education Foundation holds 12th annual tourney
The Northampton Area Konkrete Kids Educational Foundation held its 12th Annual Golf Tournament on June 20, 2022 at the Woodstone Country Club in Danielsville. The Tournament featured a full field of 144 golfers, a new record of participants.
Established in 2009 by a group of community volunteers, the Konkrete Kids Educational Foundation is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, tax-exempt organization whose primary goal is to support and finance innovative programs that enhance the quality of education for Northampton Area School District’s K-12 students. The Foundation provides the District’s teachers and administrators with funds that are used to extend learning opportunities and co-curricular experiences for the benefit of the entire school community. The Foundation funds Grant Requests submitted by the District teachers and administrators that enhance the quality of K-12 education throughout the District. Since its establishment in 2009, the Foundation has provided over $190,000 for projects.
Woodstone’s owner, Bruce Lack, was once again the Title Sponsor of the Tournament. Mr. Lack has been the Foundation’s Number One supporter not only for the golf tournament, but for other Foundation fundraising events, as well
A number of prizes were awarded to golfers who participated in the tournament. There were three flights with first, second, and third places awarded for each flight. The first-place team in each flight received a Bushnell Wingman, valued at $130; the second-place teams received golf shirts, and the third-place teams received $35 gift certificates to the Woodstone Pro Shop. Prizes were also awarded for five Closest to Pin holes and one Straightest Drive hole. A raffle that included passes to golf at Woodstone and Jack Frost Golf Courses, as well as gift cards for various golf shops and local businesses was a highlight of the event, with 18 golfers having winning raffle tickets.
