THE STORY OF MICKEY’S KIDS
Mickey’s Kids was established to continue the vision and values of Mickey Dank, a life-long friend to the children of Camps Kenwood & Evergreen. For more than forty years, Camps Kenwood & Evergreen have been committed to enhancing the racial, cultural and economic diversity of its camp community.
Mickey’s Kids is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to bringing the dream of camp to children in need. The organization provides tuition assistance to children, enabling them to participate in the magic of summer camp. The children, for whom these experiences would not otherwise be available, benefit from a strong network of support, gaining social skills, self-esteem, core values, and a greater sense of personal responsibility. New Mickey’s Kids campers, typically fourth or fifth graders, receive a seven week scholarship to attend Camps Kenwood & Evergreen each summer until the completion of ninth grade.
Ways to Contribute to the Tournament
Donate Silent Auction Items
Before, during, and after each tournament, donated items are put on display as part of a silent auction. Golfers and guests bid on the items, with the proceeds going straight to Mickey’s Kids. If you have any services or items that you would like to contribute to the Mickey’s Kids Silent Auction please contact Randi at the Mickey’s Kids website.
Donate Raffle Items
At the tournament there will also be raffle tickets available to tournament attendees. After the tournament, dozens of donated raffle items will be awarded to the winning ticket holders.
Each year the auction and raffle are a big part of the success of the tournament and help us reach our annual financial goals. Contact Mickey’s Kids if you would like to donate silent auction or raffle items. The value of your donation is tax deductible.
