It’s not every day that we can do something that is both fun and very satisfying. I had received a call from Julie Collet the Executive Director for KIND (Kids In Need of Dentistry). She had explained to me that she had saw our Ball Couture at another event and wanted to find out more about the golf ball. When she found out we are a local company here is Littleton CO Julie decided to make the call to us.
She contacted me directly and told me about what she does and what KIND is all about. Their mission is to increase the health and happiness of Colorado’s children in need by eliminating dental disease through treatment and education.
They have 3 dental clinics that served over 13,500 patients in 2015 with over 70 volunteer specialists. They also go into schools to provide dental screenings, education, and sealants for 2nd graders or younger.
For over 29 years they have been holding golf tournaments, where all the proceeds go to the organization. This year the tournament was be held at Bear Dance Golf in Larkspur CO. This was a sold out event with over 144 participants. We teamed up with KIND for this event and we were invited us to come to the event to showcase our golf ball.
I was so impressed with the organization of the event and the many volunteers that were out on the course. I took a cart and just wondering around the grounds until the clouds started to gather. That didn’t matter to any of the participants at all since they had such a beautiful setting and thankfully it didn’t rain at all during the tournament.
Many of the players are long time golfers and there were even some families enjoying the event. What a great event and knowing that thousands of children will benefit from the proceeds that were donated and from the fundraising efforts throughout the event.
