PAYDAY Workforce Solutions is happy to announce it’s partnering with KidWorks, a local non-profit organization, as an official sponsor of the first annual KidWorks Classic Golf Tournament! The tournament will take place on April 29, 2013, at Aliso Viejo Country Club, and includes a four-person scramble, putting contest, and several on-course games. The tournament also features a “19th hole” helicopter ball drop, always a favorite, in which over 1,000 golf balls are dropped from a helicopter. The first ball in the hole wins one lucky person a $1,000 cash prize! The tournament has proven to be so popular that all foursomes are already filled. If you haven’t registered to golf yet, there are still many opportunities to participate in the event, so clean up those clubs and help change the life of a young child in the Santa Ana area today!
PAYDAY Workforce Solutions has consistently sought to give back to the local community and have a positive impact on the surrounding areas in which we do business in every day. PAYDAY was fortunate to begin collaborating with KidWorks in 2012 and participating in many different events and activities. PAYDAY’s social media-driven fundraiser provided a week of summer activities for four at-risk youth in the KidWorks program. A class taught directly by PAYDAY’s own tax manager, Tim Castillo, educated youth on what makes up a paycheck and how to properly read and understand paychecks. PAYDAY also made a large donation of office supplies to KidWorks’ education department at the beginning of 2013, and we strive to continue working with and promoting the positive impact KidWorks has in the area.
Founded in 1993, KidWorks has worked tirelessly to keep at-risk Santa Ana youth out of gangs, and involved in community leadership, education and personal development. The organization has proven to be an amazingly successful program over the last 20 years. All of the program’s high school graduates are college-bound; 100% of the high school juniors completed SAT preparation courses, and 91% of the involved high school students graduated on time over the last four years. While these numbers are impressive, there is always further work that can be done to assist more youngsters who may not have solid role models or quality foundations on which to build their lives. This is why PAYDAY would like to invite you to become involved in KidWorks as well. With every donation made, more and more kids will get an opportunity to succeed and further their own growth, while also bettering the community in which we all live.
The first annual KidWorks Classic Golf Tournament will be held at the beautiful Aliso Viejo Country Club, which features one of only two private Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses in Orange County. The par-72 layout is challenging enough from the back tees, and sufficiently forgiving from the forward tees, to test the skills of experienced and beginner players alike.. Registered golfers will enjoy a full day of golf, plus a continental breakfast, on-course beverages, dinner and an awards ceremony. Most importantly, each golfer, sponsor and volunteer will have a direct impact on his or her community! Don’t play golf, but still want to help? There are still several opportunities for sponsorship as we make our way to raising our goal of $100,000. Local businesses and individuals who want to help PAYDAY and KidWorks towards reaching this goal are encouraged to consider purchasing tee and contest sponsorships or making some in-kind donations. It’s also possible to purchase dinner tickets only, so even those who don’t play golf can also enjoy the festivities and contribute to KidWorks’ mission.
There is a way for everyone to make a difference, big or small, and this tournament allows anyone to make a change in a youth’s life and in our very own local community!
