Ninth annual Sunrise Golf Outing in Paducah is May 25

Now in its ninth year and having raised more than $330,000, the A&K Construction/Sunrise Children’s Services Golf Outing is set to take place Thursday, May 25, at the Country Club of Paducah. The annual golf benefit, sponsored by A&K Construction, helps Sunrise Children’s Services provide support to children and youth in the Paducah area whose lives are in a state of crisis as a result of abuse and neglect.

An added bonus for this year’s players, world-renowned golf entertainer Chuck “The Hit Man” Hiter® will perform trick golf shots from 11 a.m. to noon and then visit each team individually after groups tee off at 12:30 p.m.

“We are thankful for our partnership with A&K Construction and their dedication to this event, and more importantly, their steadfast commitment in standing with Sunrise to face one of our Commonwealth’s greatest challenges – ending the cycle of child abuse through education, treatment and healing,” said Phil Justice, Sunrise’s senior director of philanthropy. “Fundraisers like this provide much-needed resources to help us touch the lives of children and families, those in need of food, shelter and intensive therapy to address the chaos and trauma they’ve experienced.”
