Kandyagash ST. LOUIS, MO – Kwame Foundation will host its 18th Annual Golf Tournament on Thursday, August 25, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Norman K. Probstein Golf Course at Forest Park. This year the theme is “Tee Off ‘FORE’ Education”. Proceeds will fund scholarships for students who otherwise might not attend college because of financial constraints.

This year’s goal is to raise $120,000. Kwame Foundation has endowed approximately $3M in scholarships and grants at colleges and universities that improve educational opportunities for minorities and first-generation, college-bound students. The foundation also sponsors an annual Spring Break tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities for local students.

Registration is open for foursomes and individual players.  The tournament is for experienced and rookie golfers alike. Non-golfers can participate and support the cause by attending the cocktail reception. There are several sponsorship opportunities from $150 to $10,000 still available, ranging from Hole Sponsor to Presenting Sponsor. In addition to competitive golfing, there will be raffles, games, a live auction, as well as opportunities to further support the future success of bright and enthusiastic college students through scholarships.
