Score a hole-in-one for the Serving Our Kids Foundation’s plan to swing at the 11th Annual Golf Tournament Nov. 5 at Stallion Mountain Golf Club.

The Serving Our Kids Foundation will hold its 11th annual golf tournament at Stallion Mountain Golf Club. This is their major fundraiser to continue providing 4,000 weekly lunch bags to over 100 schools for food-insecure children from K-8 in Clark County.

Player packages include breakfast, 18 holes of golf, breakfast, raffles, prizes, on course contests including closest chance to win money, goodie bags , a 50/50 raffle, a luncheon and a silent auction. A foursome costs $500 and an individual player $150. “The weather is perfect for a golf outing and to help raise funds to serve even more children,” said Dale Darcas, executive director of the Serving Our Kids Foundation. “No child should have to worry about whether or not they will have enough to eat on the weekend.”

With the growing number of food insecure children in the Las Vegas Valley, the Serving Our Kids Foundation launched Reaching Out to Serve MORE this year. Her goal is to raise an additional $90,000 so she can serve 4,800 weekly meal bags to children. This is a 20% increase over the previous year. Along with the golf tournament, additional funds will be raised through grants, community events and donations. The Serving Our Kids Foundation partners with teachers, counselors and school administrators to identify children who need help. Once a child is identified for the program, Serving Our Kids commits to the child receiving a lunch bag each week for the remainder of the school.

The long-term goal is to partner with schools to measure the impact of weekly bag lunches on a child’s school attendance and academic achievement. Serving Our Kids thanks golf tournament sponsors, including event sponsor Ford Country, exclusive sponsor Diazo Wealth Group, lunch sponsor WBF Management, towel sponsor Marcos Pizza and hat sponsor New Creation Embroidery . Additional sponsorships are still available. The 11th annual golf tournament will be held at Stallion Mountain Golf Club, 5500 E. Flamingo Road, on November 5.

About the Serving Our Children Foundation

Serving our Kids Foundation is dedicated to nurturing and meeting the needs of children in Clark County. Although there are government programs and other organizations that provide children in need with weekday breakfast and lunch during school, weekends can be a problem. Since 2012, Serving Our Kids has stepped in to fill the weekend nutritional gap for vulnerable children and now helps 4,000 children, from kindergarten to grade 8, in more than 100 schools who would otherwise go hungry. Referrals for weekend food bags are up 27% from last year, but the actual number of children needing weekend nutrition assistance is estimated to be between 8,000 and 10,000. The non-profit organization harnesses the strength of community volunteers and donations. In addition to non-perishable food items, personal care items are also collected.
