Gary Jonas First Tee Mentor Outing 2019

Posted on Updated on

The Keepers will once again dedicate this First Tee Mentor Outing in honor of the memory of a good friend who avidly participated and supported these outings.  This year we dedicate the outing to the fond memories we have of Gary Jonas to whom the community service aspect of The Keepers was always front of mind.  We cannot help but think fondly Gary’s smile and enthusiasm  interacting with the kids as we continue the tradition of the First Tee Mentor Outing in 2019.

In keeping with the our tradition, The Keepers will hold our annual First Tee Mentor Outing on Thursday August 15th from 11 to 3 pm.  This is a fun day of “being a grandparent” to 36 wonderful kids from the Greater Washington DC First Tee Programs.  The kids age from 8 to 17 but all share two things in common-they love golf and know how to comport themselves in a golfing environment.

As we have in the past, we invite Keepers and All Woodmont Members to be a volunteer/mentor and help us put on this awesome event.

Last year when we raised over $3,000 to donate to the First Tee Programs of Greater Washington through the generosity of the Woodmont membership.  You can make a donation through your Woodmont account to sponsor a kid for this event for just $50.   The cost of this event is totally underwritten by The Keepers, so the full proceeds of these sponsorship donations will go to The First Tee Of Greater Washington.

The outing begins at 11 am with a series of clinics on the range and in the Sidney Harman Short Game area.  Woodmont Staff will run the clinics and all you have to do as a volunteer is be supportive and lend a mentoring hand when needed.  A picnic lunch with the kids from around 12:30 to 1:00 in front of the Golf Shop is then followed by some golf when we take them out for four holes of real mentor time on the course.  It all wraps up around 3:00 pm.
