Ben Curtis Golf Classic

The Ben Curtis Family Foundation will host our 3rd Annual Golf Classic on Sunday, June 25th and Monday, June 26th on the North course at Firestone Country Club- host of the World Golf Championship- Bridgestone Classic. Last year’s event was a tremendous success raising over $70,000 thank you to all of you who supported us. 

My wife Candace and I launched the Foundation in 2013 to address food insecurity among children in Portage County. With nearly 50 percent of children in the Kent City Schools on a food subsidy program, the aim of our Foundation is to bridge the gap by supplying children with food over long weekends and holiday breaks. Our “Birdie Bags” include 9 meals and 6 snacks, as well as a toiletry pack including, travel size shampoo, conditioner, body wash and toothpaste for 920 children. With the success of last year’s outing we were able to expand to the high school and middle school. 

Please join us for the Golf Classic Dinner and Auction on Sunday, June 25th. The evening will feature a strolling dinner, cocktails and a live and silent auction. All participants and a guest are invited to attend. You can register and pick up your participant gift that evening as well. If you would like to only attend the Golf Classic Dinner and Auction tickets are $75 per person.  Visit Ben Curtis Golf Classic Registration website (click here) or call 330-422-8326 to become a sponsor or for more information.  

We hope that you can join us for a memorable event that will make a huge difference in the lives of children served by the Ben Curtis Family Foundation. We wouldn’t be successful without your support, we hope to see you at this memorable event.
