In January 2020 members of The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke were hard at work preparing for the annual Fore For Kids Annual Charity Golf Event to be held in April of that year.  This critical fundraiser had been held every year since 1998.  Yes critical, because in the 21 years this important Rotary event raised over $1/2 million for local community charities serving youth.  As we now know this was not to be. 
COVID19 became so severe that the tournament was postponed until the Fall of 2020, thanks in a great part to the on-going support of tournament sponsors. By the Fall of 2020 it became clear that once again the tournament needed to be postponed again as the pandemic continued to rage. Tournament Chairman, Gordon Wainwright appealed to sponsors and once again they reiterated their commitments to support the new tournament date.  After much discussion another postponement was felt necessary and a new date, November 22, 2021 was chosen.  And here we are, on the way to another exciting charity tournament.  This year it will be held at the beautiful Oro Valley Golf Club.
1998 was the beginning of 23 years of successful tournaments.  Support from community businesses and individual has been outstanding. Tournaments such asFore For Kids cannot be successful without sponsor support.  We have also been blessed with celebrity support.  For several years Hall of Fame U of A basketball coach, Lute Olson was the tournament’s Celebrity player. Lute’s support was unending.  Lute will be greatly missed.
The Fore for Kids Annual Charity Golf Tournament has become an important event in the community and is also fun for all, Rotarians, golfers, and guests.
