Thank you! 1st Annual Foundation Golf Day

The NKEF Foundation Golf Day was on Saturday, July 25, 2020 and it was a “hole-in-one” for everyone involved.  The event hosted 43 golfers at Rolling Greens Golf Course for 9 holes of golf and a box lunch provided by the Carriage Inn.  There were 23 tee sponsors and their support made this event complete.  Some of the golfers included families and staff from the NKSD and other supporters and friends of the NKEF.  The Foundation would like to appreciate everyone who participated, supported and volunteered to make this day a huge success.  We look forward to making it an annual event for the Foundation!
