BPU Employees Charity Golf Tournament Awards Proceeds to Area Organizations Benefiting Youth in the Community

(KANSAS CITY, Kan.) — The BPU Employees Charity Golf Corporation distributed checks totaling $40,000 to the Kansas City Kansas West Kiwanis Foundation, KVC Hospital, Piper Trap Team and the BPU Employee Foundation. Proceeds were raised in the corporate sponsored 2021 BPU Charity Golf Tournament event.

This year’s tournament held after having the 2020 event cancelled, was another success, and this could not be possible without the many sponsors, those that donated prizes, golfers and the employee volunteers that gave up part of their Saturday to assist in conducting this annual event.

“This is one great example of how the utility has committed itself to giving back to the community,” said BPU Charity Golf Corp. Chair David Mehlhaff.
Mehlhaff said that the funds will be utilized to feed children, provide books to assist in helping children to learn to read, equipment purchases, renovations and upgrades of facilities for young people in the community.

As part of its on-going commitment to the community, the BPU Employees Charity Golf Corporation, a Kansas not-for-profit organization, sponsors and hosts an annual golf tournament. Since it began in 1992, the annual event has raised over $679,000 dollars for area children’s charities and nonprofit organizations that benefit children and youth in Wyandotte County. Next year’s tournament is slated for Saturday, September 10th, 2022 at Dub’s Dread.
