Date Set for Annual Keep Kids In School Golf Tournament
News Release
Wednesday, November 28, 2018

April 15, 2019, is the date set for the 10th annual Keep Kids In School Golf Tournament, the premier Bay Area charity tourney benefiting Communities In Schools-Bay Area. The all-inclusive shamble tournament has raised more than $1.5 million since inception. CIS-Bay Area serves 26 campuses in Clear Creek and Dickinson Independent School Districts.

The event will be held at Bay Oaks Country Club and will include hole-in-one opportunities, a putting contest, chipping contest, breakfast/lunch throughout the day, steak dinner, martini bar, margaritas and much more.

"Today, there are 21,908 children in Clear Creek and Dickinson ISDs who can potentially drop out of school. Reasons outside of the child's control, such as hunger, homelessness, and language barriers, decrease their chances of success in school and in life. The number of children dealing with "adult" problems increases year after year," says Duane Bolpa, chairman of this year's tournament.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information on the tournament, contact Hillary Gramm, CIS-Bay Area resource development director, at or 281-486-6698.
