Walnut Valley– The Walnut Valley Rotary Club and the Diamond Bar Community Foundation are co-sponsoring their annual “Golf Fore The Kids” golf tournament on Monday, May 9 at Western Hills Country Club.

This annual event raises funds for programs that impact children and teens in our community, including leadership training, sports programs, and the fine arts.

All golfers are welcome to come. There will be a shotgun start at 9 a.m. at Western Hills with a Scramble format. In addition, there will be a putting contest before the tournament begins.

The cost is $150 per person, but each player will receive breakfast burritos before the tournament and a sack lunch on the course. In addition, an early dinner will be served at the end of play at the golf course.

Every participant will have an opportunity to win a new car at the Hole In One contest! A variety of raffle prizes will be given away at the dinner and silent auctions items will be available too.

More Tournament sponsors are needed to help raise funds “Fore the Kids”.  Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorship are available. Businesses can also promote their products and services through the purchase of Tee-signs for $150 each.

For more information about the “Golf Fore the Kids” Tournament on May 9 and to register for the event, contact Lew Herndon at lewherndon@hotmail.com.  Proper golf attire is required including collared shirts and no denim pants or shorts.
