Golf For Our Kids, A Swinging Success~ Thank You Supporters!

Posted by on May 18, 2011 in blog | 0 comments

The Partnership For Our Kids would like to thank the generous sponsors and supporters of Golf For Our Kids. Nearly $30,000 was raised and will benefit 5,000 students participating in the Partnership goal setting and group mentoring programs. “The Partnership For Our Kids programs effectively address an urgent and critical need for a segment of our community’s children,” says Golf For Our Kids Honorary Chairman, Bob Bates. “This program not only gives them hope but develops them into well adjusted and productive people.”

More than 120 golfers from 30 metro-area businesses and corporations hit the Omaha Country Club fairway on Monday, May 16th for the 18-hole scramble tournament. Honorary chairpersons for the event were Bob and Judy Bates and John and Anne Nelson. The tournament’s official golf chairmen were Dick Holland and Mike Yanney and Jim Siedlecki from WOWT Channel 6 served as emcee and media chairman.

Despite the amazing skill displayed on the course, and some extremely close calls, the 2011 Chevy Equinox hole-in-one prize, donated by Gregg Young Chevrolet, remained unclaimed by any of the tournament participants. This didn’t discourage players from giving it their all and ending the day with some pretty remarkable final scores. The first place team, with a combined foursome score of 59, included players Brian Csipkes, Dennis Hein, Kelly Karmazin and Jeff Engdahl from accounting firm, Seim Johnson Sestak and Quist, LLP. “Our strategy was just to have fun,” says Seim Johnson foursome member, Dennis Hein.
