Golfing to Make a Difference – A Truly Inspirational Day
Last month, Kenway Consulting hosted our 4th Annual Kenway Consulting Charity Golf Outing benefiting Inspiration Corporation. Because of the growth experienced in the first three years, Kenway expanded to a 27 hole course layout this year. The result was a record turnout with 158 golfers and, most importantly, our largest donation yet to Inspiration Corporation of $19,500! Sunny skies, virtually no wind and temperatures around 70 provided the perfect backdrop for the charity event.
Through its employment preparation, vocational training, housing and supportive services programs, Inspiration Corporation assists more than 3,000 individuals and families affected by homelessness and poverty each year – serving as a catalyst for self-reliance. Donations came through multiple streams including green fees, raffle ticket sales, hole sponsorships and personal donations. In four years, we have raised $56,500 for Inspiration Corporation. A sincere ‘thank you’ goes out to all of the golfers, sponsors and other contributors for your support.
Over the past four years, it has really been enjoyable to watch the event grow as more and more people contribute. This year, The Links at Carillon hosted the event and generated many positive reviews with regards to their beautiful course, spacious dinner area and attentive staff. As a four time golfer myself, it is rewarding to see so many veterans of the event along with the growing number of new participants. The second Friday in September is starting to become quite a tradition! As perhaps the last golf outing of the summer, it provides time to catch up with friends we might not typically see and to bond with coworkers, clients, colleagues and partners outside of the office. More importantly, the outing gives us the opportunity to give back to the community by taking a moment from our daily lives to focus on making a difference while having a great time doing it.
