LEESBURG — The Kosciusko Board of REALTORS celebrated their 26th Annual Charity Golf Outing on Monday, June 10, at the Tippecanoe Lake Country Club. For the second year in a row, the 2019 KBOR Golf Outing winning team was Old National Bank; consisting of John Warren, Mark Bishopp, Colin Nicol and Brad Joyner, but the real winners were KBOR’s children charities.
This year’s tournament brought out sixty-three players and raised $18,451; an increase from 2018. The KBOR Annual Charity Golf Outing is a perfect example of REALTORS® and their affiliate members working together for a common cause — the children of Kosciusko County. Every single dollar raised stays in Kosciusko County.
Among many annual initiatives the monies fund three annual $1,000 College Scholarships, including the “Spirit of the Heart” award honoring late REALTORS® who made an impact in their communities. KBOR is also proud to partner with local organizations such as Combined Community Services for the annual back-pack campaign, and the Kosciusko Big Brothers Big Sisters for the Boots for Scholars event. In addition, each year a special Kosciusko County organization is chosen as the recipient of proceeds from the annual Christmas party live auction. Last year the REALTOR® and affiliate membership was proud to present Kosciusko Community Senior Services with a check for $9,155.
The entire day of golfing would not have been made possible without the support of KBOR’s golf outing sponsors: Union Home Mortgage, First Federal Savings Bank, Meridian Title, Beacon Credit Union, Fidelity National Title, Tripp & Associates, North American Title, Ruoff Home Mortgage, Wetzel Insurance, Lake City Bank, J.K.
