Last week, the City Park Alliance, a group supporting Denver’s largest urban park, hosted their first annual golf tournament fundraiser for park improvements.
KidsTek hosted Hole #16 with our “golf cannon,” where players had the opportunity to pay to use the KidsTek cannon to replace their drive shot at that hole. The cannon uses compressed air to shoot a golf ball over 300 yards, and proceeds from the cannon hole were split between KidsTek and the City Park Alliance.
Andrew Bissland, KidsTek Program Director, and Meghan Lang, KidsTek Program Manager staffed the KidsTek cannon hole. Meghan said, “It was really fun to be a part of this tournament. A lot of incredible people came out to support City Park. The whole tournament ran smoothly, and everyone was so generous!”
KidsTek will be holding our own golf tournament fundraiser at the end of this month on July 29th. This, our 19th annual Charity Golf Classic, will be hosted in partnership with PCs for People, who provides affordable technology for under-served communities. Our tournament will also feature the golf cannon, plus a number of other fun ways to support KidsTek during our event. Come out to the University of Denver Golf Club at Highlands Ranch and enjoy a game, good food and drinks, networking, and the presentation of this year’s Nancy J. Sauer Scholarship!
