Kids Golf Classic
Benefitting the Boys & Girls Club for 24 years.
United Bank proudly hosts the annual Kids Golf Classic. The event, which began in 1997, benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Parkersburg, and has raised more than $3.1 million to assist the nonprofit organization.
The funds, which are not restricted for any one specific use, allow the organization to improve both the quality and quantity of the programs and services they provide. The Boys & Girls Club of Parkersburg serves between 100 and 200 youth per day by providing access to a safe, diverse facility with caring adult professionals that contribute to academic success, character building and healthy lifestyle choices.
Annual proceeds of the tournament account for more than one-third of the organization’s operating budget. The 2020 event generated a tournament record $250,275 in donations, which will have a direct and positive impact on the more than 900 youth served annually by the organization.
The tournament, which is entirely underwritten by United Bank has tremendous community support from golfers and businesses alike, many of whom have participated since the tournament’s inception. Because of United’s underwriting, 100 percent of the funds raised from entry fees, sponsorships and donations directly benefit the Boys and Girls Club.
In total, 108 golfers participated in the 2020 Kids Golf Classic, which was sponsored by 98 local businesses and community members.
