OXNARD, Calif.—The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme is looking for sponsors and players to take part in the 18th annual “Fore the Kids” Golf Classic. The charity tournament, honoring Carl Lowthorp and Bob McMillan, will be held Monday, June 28 at Las Posas Country Club. Former NFL player Keary Colbert and his surprise NFL guests will also be playing in the tournament and available for autographs and photos for those participating in the tournament.
“This annual event attracts civic and business leaders from Ventura and LA Counties and sells out every year. We are looking forward to another great tournament benefitting our greatest asset: our youth,” said Tim Blaylock, Chief Professional Officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme.
Entry fee to the tournament is $295 per player or $1180 per team. The registration fee gives each player access to green fees, cart, lunch, contests and an awards banquet, held after the tournament.

The Club currently serves more than 7,200 youth in the Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme area. While members pay $15 per year, the club pays $500 per year in program expenses for each child in club programs.
