Trinity Kids to Host 1st Annual Links Fore Kids Charity Golf Tournament

ARLINGTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Trinity Kids, Inc. (Trinity Kids), an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that specializes in helping abused, neglected and abandoned children of North Texas, announced today that they are hosting the 1st Annual Links Fore Kids Charity Golf Tournament. The tournament, a 4-man scramble, kicks off at 12:00pm on Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at the Texas Star Golf Course in Euless, Texas.

"We are excited about launching the Links Fore Kids golf tournament as a new fundraising opportunity to raise awareness and money for abused children of North Texas," stated Mike Lally, executive director of Trinity Kids. "Summer camp alone costs approximately $300 per child so we rely on donations and fundraisers. We have no paid staff, so almost 100 percent of your donation goes directly towards helping children who deserve to be given a chance in life."

The Links Fore Kids golf tournament will include a number of contests including hole-in-one, closest to the pin and long drive contests. Prizes are being awarded for the top three teams and last place team. Immediately following the tournament, a raffle, auction and dinner will be hosted by Joe Gumm of 103.3 ESPN Radio.

"The tournament is going to be played at a great golf course for a great cause and it is not too late to get involved. We still need more players, sponsors and items for our raffle and auction," stated Gary Peek, director for the Links Fore Kids golf tournament. "We can't make this tournament a success without the help of our sponsors such as David McDavid Honda of Irving, Luxor Staffing, Supreme Golf and North Texas Catering."

The Links Fore Kids tournament committee is urging companies and individuals to consider participating in the tournament by playing, sponsoring a team or becoming a tournament sponsor.
