2023 Golf Classic

With all proceeds going to Rewards for Reading

Dear Kiwanians, Friends, and Supporters,

The Kiwanis Club of Lafayette is continuing our “KIDS NEED KIWANIS’ Golf Tournament on April 24th. Please consider a sponsorship level and forming a four-person team. This promises to be another fun filled event with great food, drinks, and fellowship. This year 100% of net proceeds will directly benefit our Rewards 4 Reading program.

Our club has served the kids in our community for 79 years. Our Club is well known for putting on the local High School Football Jamboree, which we hosted our 70th jamboree this past August. The Jamboree and Golf Tournament are our two main fundraisers and 100% of the proceeds are used for programs that directly impact children in our community. Those programs include directly providing for the needs of children through Operation Magi (Christmas shopping for our homeless school children), Wheels of Wonder (bicycles for foster kids) and our Annual Spelling Bee and Rewards for Reading. Major projects that our club has completed: Parc Independence at Girard Park, replaced the lights and turf at Clark Field and refurbished multiple playgrounds in our area.

Our club started a new program 3 years ago partnering with the Lafayette Parish School System called Rewards 4 Reading. This program awards prizes to children for reading and completing AR goals. Last year we provided over $35,000 worth of prizes to the 24 elementary schools that participate and track Accelerated Reading. Last year LPSS credited this program with a 22% increase in million-word readers and a 127% increase in engaged reading minutes across the parish. Some schools reported that this program helped quadruple AR points. With the help of our major sponsors: Love Our Schools, Parish Proud, Canes, Cox, & ADT Pizza Hut we ask for your support to be able to provide more prizes. With your help, we will be able to continue to increase the love of reading of the youth of our parish.

Remember, Kids need Kiwanis, but Kiwanis needs you!
