Golf Tournament on Sept. 17 to Raise Funds to Feed Hungry Kids

LONGMEADOW — The sad reality is that one in six kids in the U.S. goes hungry every day. No Kid Hungry is a national nonprofit organization created to alter that reality. Through its fundraising efforts, No Kid Hungry supports school breakfast programs, after-school meal programs, summer meal programs, and food-skills education programs to help parents sustainutrition efforts. Each dollar raised by No Kid Hungry provides 10 meals to at-risk children and supports education programs for parents.

On Monday, Sept. 17, No Kid Hungry Golf, a local affiliate, will sponsor a golf tournament at Longmeadow Country Club to raise money to help feed these hungry kids. A number of generous businesses and organizations have already joined the effort as sponsors, including Janney Montgomery; Shatz, Schwartz, and Fentin, PC.; CBS, a Xerox Company; Monson Savings Bank; Disability Management Services; and Business Networking International, Wilbraham Chapter.

The event will feature many opportunities to help these kids. You can register to golf, be a sponsor or donor, or come to the cocktail hour/dinner and auction. For more information or to register, visit www.nokidhungrygolf.com or contact Dr. Fred Kadushin at fkadushin@comast.net or (413) 893-9677.
