The Grain Valley Partnership’s annual Golf Classic has been renamed the Kissick Classic in honor of Jim Kissick, a great supporter of the Grain Valley community.
The Kissick Classic, to be held May 3, 2019 at Adams Pointe Golf Club, is the 3rd annual tournament for the Partnership.
“Jim Kissick was a huge supporter of the Grain Valley community who loved to give back to those organizations that helped those who needed a little extra support, especially when it came to education. His presence will be greatly missed,” Tasha Lindsey, Executive Director of the Grain Valley Partnership said.
Friends and family recalled when Jim wasn't working or watching his favorite sports teams, he would have a golf club in his hand.
The Partnership decided to honor Kissick by mixing two of his favorite things: golf and giving back.
Proceeds from the tournament will benefit area charitable organizations and will also help create a scholarship to be given to a graduating senior going into the construction or engineering field.
“Jim's passion for the construction field was shown in the success of Kissick Construction Co. We want to help someone else achieve their dreams like Jim Kissick did,” Lindsey said.
The four-man scramble begins with a shotgun start at 8:00am.
