Kent Theatre to hold golf outing fundraiser


Do you love to golf? Would you like to help the Kent Theatre raise funds for a worthy cause? Or maybe you’d just like the chance to win $10,000 or a number of other prizes? If you answered yes to any of those questions, sign up now for The Kent Theatre’s 17th annual golf fundraiser to be held on Saturday, August 19, at The Falls at Barber Creek in Kent City.

“The historic Kent Theatre in Cedar Springs is community owned and operated,” said Kent Theatre president Len Allington. “We bring movies, stage plays, musical performances, and other cultural events to the community. We are staffed by volunteers and they donate approximately 200 hours per week of their time to make everything run smoothly. We are a 501 c-3 Non-Profit and each year (for the last 16 years) we have held a golf fundraiser with the proceeds earmarked for a special project to restore the old theatre or to purchase equipment that we need.

“This year we are dedicating all money made at the golf outing to our new Concession Volunteer College Scholarship Fund,” explained Allington. “We staff the theatre concession with volunteer high school and middle school kids, and many of them devote their time to the theatre week after week. We have created a plan that will reward them with college scholarship money when they graduate from high school.”

All 18 holes will be open for this event, which is a four-person scramble. Sign ups are at 1 p.m. with a shotgun start at 2 p.m. The cost will include a cart. Entrants will have the chance to win several prizes for things such as a hit the boat contest, 50/50 raffle, longest drive hole, closest to the pin hole, and a $10,000 hole in one contest.

For info on the cost of a foursome or sponsoring a hole, contact Len Allington at 231-750-2337 or email him at Len@laphoto.com. You can also download a form from the Kent Theatre’s event page.
