2007 - Ready to Continue Our Steps Forward

All Golf’s Kids 2007 plans and initiatives include:

1)    5,000 kids (cumulative) projected to attend USGA, PGA, Champions, and LPGA Tour Events and visit private country clubs - Wykagyl (LPGA Big Apple), Winged Foot (US Open 2006), Westchester (Barclay's Classic), Commerce LI Classic, and other events & venues.

2)    Renew & develop program partnerships (e.g. Boys/Girls Clubs, Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts, Big Bros/Big Sisters, Children’s Aid, Fresh Air Fund, United Way, high schools, middle schools, SUNY.

3)    Volunteers thru VolunteerMatch (234 volunteer inquiries, over 7,200 site page views, since 1999).

4)    1-Day (or more) kids’ golf outing at Doral Arrowood, plus special groups of talented kids.

5)    Possible Higher-Education Scholarship Program via Scholarship America & perhaps "Chick Evans”- scholarships, caddie scholarships - and support for Westchester Caddie Scholarship Fund.

6)    Indoor Golf Simulators: we structured (aided by Keyspan) the installation of a $54,000 Indoor Simulator at SUNY-Farmingdale for under-privileged students, college students, and faculty.

7)    Diversity Initiatives: we were instrumental in assisting 2 fund-raising golf outings for Riverdale Country School’s support of SummerBridge: a tuition-free, year-round enrichment program for low-income kids from surrounding communities.

8)    Mobilization of support via possible “Golf Club Without Real Estate” (All Golf’s Kids Club) with free membership for kids, benefits for adults.  Cost plus kids’ memberships can be underwritten.

9)    Expand Golf-Based Educational Curriculum (Golf/Math, History, Poetry, Geography, Physics, and Science) & Essay Contests

10)  New programs to assist other charities and non-profits in enriching the lives of "disadvantaged", underserved kids.
