Thanks to the many contributors and participants in Partnership 4 Kids 2012 golf benefit, Swing 4 Kids, more than $50,000 was raised for the agency’s programs.

The scramble-style tournament took place at Field Club of Omaha on Monday, July 16th with nearly 200 participants coming out to support the Partnership.  

Notable players included Husker football legends Johnny Rodgers and Tommie Frasier,  University of Nebraska, Lincoln division I head basketball coach, Derrin Hansen as well as  WOWT, Channel 6 news personalities, Dave Webber and Jim Siedlecki .
Swing 4 Kids golfers enjoyed a day of chipping and putting for a good cause, trying their luck at multiple hole contests, including the coveted hole-in-one contest for a brand-new 2012 Mini Cooper Coup from Markel Automotive Group.  Although the level of skill on the course was extremely high, no one was able to drive away with the grand-prize Coup.   
As part of the day’s festivities, Partnership 4 Kids students greeted golfers as they took the course and hosted a lemonade stand, at which they served thirsty  players  for free-will donations to help raise money  to purchase books and classroom supplies.

A special thank you to the more than 50 sponsors who contributed to Swing 4 Kids, 2012 including title sponsor, Omaha Steaks, lunch and beverage sponsors, Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches, and Lucky Bucket Brewing Co., print sponsor, Wright Printing, hole-in-one sponsor, Markel Automotive Group and media sponsor, WOWT, Channel 6.
