BECKLEY -

Just For Kids, Inc. is holding a golf tournament on Tuesday, Aug. 20 at Grandview Country club.

The tournament will support the work of the child advocacy center.   All services that are provided by the Just for Kids center are free of charge to the families.   Only half of the funding the agency requires comes from state and federal sources.   This tournament along with other donations from people or businesses are vital to the functioning of the Just For Kids agency.

The first place prize will be a round of golf, including cars, at the exclusive Snead Course at the Greenbrier Sporting Club.   Second place team prize is a round of golf at the Stonewall Resort in Roanoke.  The third place team prize is a round of golf at Grandview Country club.   Other prizes will be awarded for things like the longest drive, closest to the pin, and a new car for a hole-in-one.   

"This tournament is a way to spread the word about the work we do and raise needed funds for the children we serve," said Brad Limer, Chairman of the JFK Golf Tournament Committee.  "We want the golfing community to understand the importance of providing a safe and friendly facility for children who are experiencing the trauma of child abuse."

To register for the event, which includes lunch, beverages and light refreshments throughout the day please contact Just For Kids, Inc at (304) 255-4834.   Team registration is $300 for a foursome.
