Akron Promise to raise money for Kenmore-Garfield Scholarships

Golf Outing at Mayfair Country Club in Green


(Summit County, Ohio –April 2019) – Akron Promise will hold a golf fundraiser on May 18, 2019 starting at 8 a.m. for $70 per person at Mayfair Country Club in Green. All proceeds benefit scholarships for students attending Kenmore-Garfield High School (KGHS).  Tickets are available at www.akronpromise.org.


In the spring of 2018, Akron Promise and the Stark State College Foundation awarded 8 KGHS graduates full tuition and book scholarships.   


For many Akron students, a major barrier to post-secondary education is money. For the second year in a row, Akron Promise will remove that barrier for up to ten Kenmore-Garfield High School students,” shared Tom Ghinder, Founder of Akron Promise, Inc. “We believe all students deserve a chance at a post-secondary certificate or degree, leading to a satisfying career and quality of life. In addition, Akron Promise is trying to shape the culture of education in Akron to help ensure that all students have access to appropriate supports, resources and opportunities.”


The event ticket includes 18 holes and a cart, door prizes, proximity contests, breakfast and a steak lunch. Sponsorships are available at various levels for the tournament and individual holes. Door prize donations are still being accepted. 


For non-golf participants, lunch only tickets are available for $20 per person. Lunch will be from noon - 1:30 p.m.  Ticket includes lunch, dessert and a drink voucher. The event will be partially catered by the KGHS Culinary Department.


Akron Promise is a 501c3 organization.  For more information regarding this event or Akron Promise, please go to www.akronpromise.org.  To make a direct donation, mail checks to “Akron Promise” at 66 Melbourne Avenue, Akron, OH 44313.
