LWCC-Kids’ Chance Invitational Golf Tournament Raises Record $39,100

WRITTEN BY

BATON ROUGE, La. -- A final accounting shows that the recent LWCC-Kids' Chance Invitational Golf Tournament raised a record $39,100 this year for the Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) Kids' Chance Scholarship Fund. The program provides scholarships to children of work-related accident victims.

LWCC (Louisiana Workers' Compensation Corporation) Executive Vice President Dave Dommert presented a check in the amount of $36,000 to the LBF Kids' Chance Scholarship Program at a September 27 awards ceremony immediately following the tournament, held at the Country Club of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. LBF Kids' Chance Committee Co-Chairmen Gary Knoepfler and Paul Buffone accepted the check on behalf of Kids' Chance. After all costs were finalized and additional donations factored in, the total went up $3,100.

During the seven years it has been held, the tournament has raised more than $229,000 for the Kids' Chance program. The program is administered by the Louisiana Bar Foundation and is governed by a committee representing a cross section of the legal and workers' compensation communities, including LWCC. The first Kids' Chance program was founded in 1988 by the Workers' Compensation Section of the Georgia Bar Association. Today there are programs in 28 states.

"LWCC is honored to help provide financial assistance for these deserving young students," said LWCC President and Chief Executive Officer Kristin Wall. "The Kids' Chance scholarships pay for school tuition, books, fees, and general living expenses."

Kids' Chance scholarships are available to Louisiana residents from ages 16 to 25 who demonstrate financial need and meet other qualifications. Any accredited Louisiana university; community, technical or vocational college; or state-approved proprietary school qualifies.
