Each year we give a dictionary to third-grade students and we promote good citizenship through our Citizenship Awards for elementary school students. We also support Girls on the Run, a program for building self-esteem among young girls. These are just a few of the community programs we support through funds raised each year at our FORE! KIDZ Golf Tournament.”
