The tournament, hosted through the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation, Inc., the philanthropic arm of the fraternity, benefits Broward County students by offering scholarships to Florida universities and colleges, supporting local youth mentoring programs and special educational needs.

Catering to the professional or weekend golfer, the event’s four-man scramble format offers “three” flights, a longest drive, closest to the pin and putting contests. Free range balls and a golf clinic are offered prior to the start of the tournament, and a dinner, silent auction, award ceremony and raffle prizes conclude the tournament.

The 11th annual event is made possible due to the support of the members of the fraternity and generous sponsors including Congressman Alcee Hastings.

The tax-deductible contribution for an individual golfer is $110, $420 for a four-person team and the $25 awards dinner for non-golfers. The Golf Klassic features sponsorship packages starting at just $200.

In 2012-13 the Kappa Foundation provided more than 15 scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 to Broward County students. The family of the late Artis “Jack” Hall and the foundation will award the first annual Artis “Jack” Hall Community Service Award, established after the recent passing of Hall, to recognize individuals who  promote positive ideals and upward social movement. “Our Golf Klassic has exceeded our initial goals,” said Wendy Pognon, 2013 Kappa Golf chairman.

For additional information about how businesses can become a part of the tournament or sponsorship, contact Wendy Pognon, Golf Klassic coordinator, at 954-224-7647, or visit  flakappas.com
