Golf Fore Kids Sake Tournament

Posted: Updated:

Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Yellowstone County is a one on one mentoring program. Those with the organization hit the greens for a special cause.

The Boys and Girls Club has been around for 42 years. The "Golf Fore Kids Sake" tournament is a first for the organization.

The Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club, Emily Brown, says she does it to help others.

"This tournament is to get the word out about Big Brother Big Sisters, raise money for the organization, and educate people about what we do with Big Brothers Big Sisters," said Brown.

Shane Emineth says he was asked to play on First Interstate Bank's team.

"We're friends, so it should be a good time like I said a lot of fun, and that's what it's all about. Just have fun," said Emineth.

Emineth's company is building a wheelchair ramp and security light outside the Boys and Girls Club. They raised $30,000 for this tournament, but golfers weren't surprised when they ran into antelope on the course.

The goal of Big Brothers and Big Sisters is to help others.

Brown said, "Sometimes they don't feel that self worth, and that's what were trying to instill back into these kids, that they are worth something, and that they can be a productive part of the community."

Each team of four put up $500 to play while donors, and sponsors gave money for the event to help support the kids.

The money raised will go to extensive background checks, and group outings.
