     Message from Brian J. McDonough, Executive Director of Give Kids A Chance:

August 10, 2021

We are less than 2 months away from our big event!  Slots are filling up fast (we only have room for 12 more foursomes) so I would urge those of you who have not yet responded with plans for sponsoring, attending and/or with your group information to please let us know at your earliest convenience.

Please note, given the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, all events associated with Give Kids A Chance will be held outdoors. The Sunday night cocktail party will be held in the courtyard area of Cerveceria La Tropical and on Monday, our awards ceremony and presentation of raffle prizes will be held in the outdoor grotto area of LaGorce Country Club.

We are looking forward to seeing each of you soon as we continue to support the dreams of low income high school seniors to attend college.  Thank you for your continuous support of this event!

If you are traveling from out of town: 
The Hotel of South Beach (801 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139) is offering a 20% discount, now through September 26, 2021, from the best available rate of any available room. To access this rate for travel dates between September 30 and October 7, 2021, please enter the discount code (GKAC) in the promo field of the hotel website or email Luis Cruz, Revenue Manager.

The Hyatt Centric South Beach (1600 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139) is also offering discounted rates. To gain access to the group rate for October 2-5, 2021, please book using this hotel website link.
As you know, we postponed our 2021 event due to the pandemic. Fortunately, it looks like we are turning the corner to the point where our leadership feels confident that we can safely host our 17th Annual event in early 2022. We are currently planning for our evening cocktail event to take place in an outdoor location on Sunday, January 9, 2022 and our annual golf outing to take place the following day on Monday, January 10, 2022. Our golf outing will once again be held at LaGorce Country Club in Miami Beach. In a short while, we will be sending a registration form and other information regarding the event.
We are hopeful that all of you who have participated in the past as a Sponsor or as a player will do so again this year. It should be a wonderful time.
I look forward to connecting soon. Until then, please be well and, as always, thank you for your continued support of Give Kids A Chance.Give Kids A Chance is currently in the process of reviewing scholarship applications from numerous qualified candidates for the 2021-22 school year and beyond. As we engage in this process, I am constantly reminded of all of you whose generosity has been instrumental in our charity's success.

I hope this message finds everyone safe and healthy. LaGorce Country Club has advised that the only available date for our annual golf outing is Monday, October 4, 2021. My thought is holding an event this October is far better than not having one at all. It will give us an opportunity to finally get together, something I am sure we all will enjoy. As always, we will also hold a cocktail reception the evening prior to the event.  

For this year's sponsorship forms, please download here or visit our website, www.gkac.org. We are hopeful that all of you who have participated in the past as a Sponsor or as a player will do so again this year.

I look forward to seeing you all soon. Until then, please be well and, as always, thank you for your continued support of Give Kids A Chance.
