BPU Charity Golf Committee Awards Proceeds to Area Organizations

The BPU Charity Golf Tournament Committee distributed checks totaling $21,000 to the KCK Library Foundation, Wyandotte County Sports Association and the BPU Employee Foundation. Proceeds were raised in the corporate sponsored 2016 BPU Charity Golf Tournament event. As part of its on-going commitment to the community, BPU employees sponsor and host an annual golf tournament. Since it began in 1992, the annual event has raised over a half a million dollars for area children’s charities and nonprofit organizations that benefit children and youth in Wyandotte County.

This year’s tournament is slated for Saturday, September 9th at Dub’s Dread.

Very soon the golf committee will be looking for organizations in need of funding from proceeds raised at this year’s event. Be looking for registration information and sponsorship information which will be distributed soon.
