The 22nd Annual A.K. “Buddy” Brown Klein ISD Education Foundation Golf Classic and raffle raised a record-breaking $170,725 for classroom grants.

This amount will be awarded as classroom grants to Klein ISD educators to benefit students.

Over 170 golf enthusiasts, 69 community partners, sponsors, and countless volunteers made this event successful at the beautiful Gleannloch Pines Golf Club.

“Every detail of our golf tournament is directed towards the players having a good time, focusing ALL funds to the benefit of our students and teachers and recognizing our sponsors for their contributions in keeping our overhead as low as possible,” Klein Education Foundation President Bill Lakin said. “We are noticing many of our sponsors are bringing their younger employees into the fold of participating and giving. Thank you so much for your generous contributions.”

Golf tournament proceeds are put directly back into classrooms to fund engaging educational experiences for our Klein ISD students and teachers.

“Every year, I am blown away by the generosity of our Klein community partners, volunteers, and local businesses for their continued support of our school district and their effort to help us deliver on our promise,” Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said. “We are blessed to have the proceeds from the annual A.K. Buddy Brown Golf Classic directly impact our students and teachers across Klein ISD, and I extend my deepest gratitude to every person who made this phenomenal day possible.”
