It was a beautiful day to spend outside for a great cause Monday, as Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri hosted the eighth annual Putting “Fore” The Kids Golf Tournament, presented by McCarthy Toyota of Sedalia. Thirty teams competed for top honors and bragging rights at the tournament which raised $17,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs programs and operations.

“We’re so thankful to the community for showing up and supporting Boys & Girls Club, especially on such a hot day,” said Executive Director Gary Beckman. “This is one of the best golf outings we’ve had with a record number of teams and the support comes at a perfect time: our Summer Program is seeing a record number of children each day, more than double the amount seen in previous years. We’re so appreciative of the support of our programs.”
