29th Annual Strokes of KINDness Golf Tournament Coming Up!


On Monday June 20, Kids In Need of Dentistry will be hosting our 29th Annual Strokes of KINDess Golf Tournament.  The tournament will be held at The Golf Club at Bear Dance which was awarded the #1 golf course along the Front Range in 2014 and 2015.

This is a fun filled day that includes golfing, contests, prize drawings, food, drinks and awards.  The format this year will be a tradition scramble.  Proceeds from the tournament will be used to strengthen our programs.

Our tournament is successful because of individuals and corporations who support us year after year.  Each year our tournament is sold out and that is a testament of what a great tournament Strokes of KINDness has become.

KIND is lucky to have such committed supporters who believe in our mission  which allows us to do what we love every day and that is providing dental care and education to Colorado’s children in need.
