The SumoKids Foundation, which has registered for not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization status, will hold a Golf Tournament to raise funds on Sunday, August 21. The event will start at 12:00 pm at the Fort Erie Golf Club, in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada. The cost is $65.00 Canadian or $55.00 US.
ÂWe offer summer programs and After School Programs to introduce Buffalo children to the fun and excitement of Sumo Wrestling,Â said Charles Bray, president of the SumoKids Foundation. ÂBecause our programs are free to schools and children, we are raising funds from individual and corporate donors.Â
The SumoKids Sumo Wrestling Clinics and SumoKids After School Programs are educational sports training and festivals that are open to all children between 6 and 16 years old. The programs weave the traditional arts of Sumo Wrestling with elements of contemporary youth culture into an exciting youth adventure.
ÂOur first year was successful, and was self-funded,Â said Henry Chapman III, master coach of the SumoKids Foundation. ÂThis summer, we are starting our first fund raising event by hosting this golf tournament so that we can expand our programs throughout Western New York in the fall.Â
To register for the August 21 SumoKids Golf Tournament contact Charles Bray at +1 (716) 946-3246.
The SumoKids Foundation seeks corporate sponsors to help cover the costs of the program. For more information about sponsoring SumoKids, please contact development director Paul McAfee at 716 568-0329.
