Thank you for making our 7th Annual Tee Off for Kindred Life a huge success! We had a record number of golfers and dinner guests in attendance and are grateful to those of you who invited new people to learn more about how we serve teen parents and their families.

With your help, we were close to raising the $25,000 event goal but fell $2,000 short. This money jump starts our summer program, continuing individual and group counseling services along with monthly family social times for parents and children to stay connected.   The  Kindred Life staff is also planning the upcoming Life Education year beginning in September.  We hope you will prayerfully consider investing in the lives of our young families this summer with an additional above and beyond  gift to reach our goal or learn more about serving opportunities within the organization this fall. We are in need of mentors, childcare providers and board members and are happy to connect you with the ministry. Please know that your investment of time, talent or treasure will reap generational blessings for those we serve like our teen parent speakers at the event, Abril, Robyn and Jose who have grown because someone like you cared enough to give.

What’s a golf event without a little competition?  Prizes were awarded to players who achieved the longest putt, closest to the pin, male and female longest drive, and the team with the best overall score. Bill Byrne won the award for longest putt, and Keith Kreb snatched the distinction for closest to the pin. In the longest-drive competition, Deb Lehman carried home the prize for longest female drive, and Daniel Mattson claimed the trophy for longest male drive. Russ Glover, Justin Glover, Billy Byrne and Bob Weekly earned the best score of 60.

We thank all of our generous sponsors  for their contributions and all of the participants who helped make this year’s golf tournament such a success!

We invite you to view some of the photo’s taken by our wonderful photographer’s Katie Adkins and Craig Dent.
