First Tee to Host Annual Breakfast Fundraiser
YAKIMA, Wa - In golf, Patrick Reed won The Masters on Sunday by one stroke finishing at 15-under par. Rickie Fowler finished in second place at 14-under par. Jordan Speith, who led after the opening round, shot eight-under par on Sunday which tied a Masters record, but still finished two shots behind Reed.
Speaking of golf, thanks to the First Tee Yakima, more and more kids in our area are playing golf and this fundraiser will most certainly help this wonderful cause.
The 11th annual First Tee Breakfast is a great fundraiser to help this great organization as they teach golf to kids in the Yakima Valley
The breakfast takes place this Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. at the SOZO Field House at the SOZO Sports Complex in Yakima.
The First Tee's mission is to not only teach the game of golf to kids but also teach them life skills as well.
The group's nine core values of: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgement are a perfect example.
The First Tee encourages parents of the kids in the program to reinforce the behaviors by talking to their kids about the core values, what they mean and what those behaviors may look like when they are at home with their families.
The guest speaker at this year's breakfast is none other than Sun Kings head coach Paul Woolpert.
Most important, 100-percent of the proceeds of the breakfast go to the First Tee so it's a win-win for everybody.
