The Currituck Kids Golf Invitational
At The Carolina Club in Grandy, 3 of our top golfers showed off their golfing talents to help raise money for The Currituck Kids, Inc. The Currituck Kids, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides Currituck’s school-age children with the necessities to make their school experience the best it can be and ensure the children reach their full potential with both dignity and respect.

Prior to the start of the golfing event, it looked like the weather wasn’t going to cooperate, but by the time it was scheduled to start, the weather broke and everyone had a great time!

Thank you, Mark Bissell, Dave Klebitz, and Mike Barr for helping make this a successful day for The Currituck Kids, Inc.
