BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — About 40 people golfed their way through Links at Boynton Beach on Saturday to raise money for a good cause.
It was all part of the first ever Drivin’ for Youth Education tournament benefiting M&S Community Stars of Performing Arts and Academics. They are a non-profit organization based out of Boynton Beach working with low-income and foster families.
The money raised from the 40 or so registrations will fund scholarships for underserved children.
“This really gives them a lot of opportunity, because as we know, music, dance, theater, art, it’s really pricey,” Melissa Williams, the non-profit’s executive director, said. “A lot of kids want that opportunity and their parents aren’t able to afford it.”
M&S Community Stars is “a small but effective afterschool Art and Educational enrichment program,” located in Boynton Beach Mall, according to the school’s site.
“It provides this safety net where a child can know that I might not have the family that has the cash to provide this type of early developmental training," said Hebert Lowe, the organization’s event coordinator, "but there’s a place I can go.”
