Hole in One Challenge scheduled to raise funds for shoes for students

A hole-in-one challenge is planned to raise money to help purchase shoes for students as they return to school this fall.


A Hole In One Challenge is scheduled at 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14, at Creekmoor Golf Club in Raymore. There are two contests with opportunities to win prize money.


Proceeds from this event will be used to purchase shoes for families in the community who cannot afford to send children back to school with new shoes. Recipients will primarily be students in the Raymore-Peculiar School District. However, other local families may complete the survey link.


Families who would like this assistance should complete the survey on or before Aug. 14:


Shoes will be provided on a first come, first serve basis, and no surveys will be considered after the cut-off date. The survey includes a place for the family to select one of three elementary schools as a pickup location. Participation will be anonymous, and the items will be held in the counselor’s office.

*Any additional funds collected above that needed to purchase shoes will go toward a Legacy Youth Further Education (LYFE) scholarship for an eligible student at Raymore-Peculiar Academy, the alternative school for students in grades 9-12.
