Did you know that over 50% of Charlotte-Mecklenburg School students grades K-8 are eligible for free or reduced lunch? This is a direct correlation to family income levels, which affect youths' involvement in extracurricular activities. Help us minimize this negative impact by becoming a part of Mecklenburg County's Dr. Charles L. Sifford Memorial Youth Sports Scholarship Fund Golf Tournament. This annual event, held in October, provides youth sports scholarship opportunities for deserving children in our communities. Get involved and be a part of something special.
Dr. Charles L. Sifford's legacy is treasured and valued in Mecklenburg County. He was an inspiration to many by becoming the first African-American to play on the PGA tour. He had to overcome many barriers to achieve this accomplishment and eventually win two PGA tour events. We hope to pass along his dedication and commitment to all county youth who will benefit from this scholarship fund by enabling them to participate in golf and other County recreational programs at a free or reduced cost.
Please join us for the Dr. Charles L. Sifford Memorial Youth Sports Scholarship Fund Golf Tournament. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Dr. Charles L. Sifford Memorial Youth Sports Scholarship Fund. Whether you play in the tournament, become a sponsoring partner, or simply make a donation, your involvement in this memorable event will have an immediate impact.
