Klein Classic Golf Tournament raises $114,000
The Klein Classic golf tournament raised $114,000 on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at Gleannlock Pines Golf Club.
Despite the rain, 180 golfers participated in the event, which raised grant money for the Klein ISD Education Foundation.
The tournament was renamed the A.K. Buddy Brown Klein ISD Education Foundation Golf Classic this year. Brown is a long-time supporter of the district.
"To have my name associated with this tournament is an unbelievable honor," Brown said, according to a release. "To actually see the benefits the KEF does for our school district is so rewarding, and this tournament has been going on for 11 years because it's a total group effort that makes it all work."
The team of Mike Holt, Jeff Williams, Brian Greeney and Bob Anderson won the tournament.
The Diamond sponsors of the tournament included Campus Kids, Dupre Energy Services and White Oak Energy. Perdue Brandon Fielder Collins & Mott helped support the event by sponsoring golf carts.
"We always enjoy the Education Foundation golf tournament because it's an opportunity to spend time with the Klein community and support their efforts for the kids of the Klein ISD," Jason Bailey said. "Our firm has supported this event and will continue to do so in the future."
More than $15,000 was also raised in a silent auction and raffle. Items were donated by parent-teacher organizations, volunteers and business partners.
