JONESBORO — CityYouth Ministries will host the “Fore” the Kids Golf Tournament Aug. 6 at Ridgepoint Country Club.

Due to COVID-19, CityYouth Ministries was forced to cancel two of its most significant fundraisers. To compensate for the lack of funding, the organization is hosting the golf tournament, according to a news release.

Check-in will begin at 11:30 a.m. and the shotgun start will be at 1 p.m.

Funds raised will provide operational funding for CityYouth Ministries after-school programming.

CYM has been an integral part of the Jonesboro community since 1999. CityYouth provides a daily after-school and summer program for children in first to eighth grades.

“CYM is committed to nurturing children spiritually and academically,” said Executive Director Denise Snider. “Our focus is to provide life-changing opportunities that will transform the lives of our youth and ultimately the Jonesboro community.”

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Platinum sponsorship is $1,000, and includes a logo on banner at the entrance of the tournament and a team of four players. Hole sponsorship is $200 and receives signage at the designated hole.

To enter a four-person team costs $400. The tournament has a limit of 22 teams.
