Garrett Spencer is still making a positive impact on the Hesston community with the Third Annual G51 Golf Tournament to be hosted Saturday, Aug. 23 at the Hesston Golf Park with entries due by Aug. 15.
Susan Spencer, founder of G51, said funds from the tournament are vital in continuing the foundation’s mission of improving the lives of Hesston youth.
“It is an important event to raise money for G51 so we can continue helping kids in our area,” said Spencer.
The G51 Foundation provides three $1,000 scholarships annually. In addition, G51 works in cooperation with USD 460 to assist in covering costs of extracurricular activities for students who are unable to pay for equipment or necessary supplies.
Spencer said the last three years have been very successful for the G51 Golf Tournament.
“We had 19 teams registered last year. This year I would like to see between 20 and 25,” she said.
