The First Golf FORE Good: A Golf-A-Thon 
to Support the SVF

On July 31, two Blue Springs South students, Grant Wall and Ryan Dykhouse, played 54 holes to raise money for The Stephanie Vest Foundation. This event was created by Grant, a junior on the Blue Springs South golf team, as a way to create community awareness for his favorite charity. In one day, more than $3,790 was raised for this local nonprofit. Thank you to the Lakewood Oaks Country Club for allowing the boys to utilize the course for this event.

This charity is unique because 100 percent of the money raised goes directly to local families who need financial help due to a cancer diagnosis. Every cent will make an immediate impact in the community. Grants are awarded to pay living expenses when a parent cannot work due to chemo and cancer treatment. To learn more, visit
