The Bill Self/LPRD Youth Scholarship Golf Classic is held the third weekend of June before Father’s Day.
Since 1946, the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department has been providing recreational and quality of life programming for the Lawrence community.
LPRD is aware of the great pressures and risks children face today. That’s why it is imperative that there are outlets for children to participate in activities that are fun and educational.
To ensure that all programs are available to all children in the community, the Wee Folk Scholarship was established in 1996.
LPRD awarded nearly $26,000 in scholarships in 2016 for children to participate in its programs. In fact since LPRD began awarding scholarships, nearly $300,000 has been provided for children, assisting in their skill development through fun, educational programs and activities.
By participating in the Bill Self/LPRD Youth Scholarship Golf Classic, you assist the department in its commitment to the citizens of Lawrence and would help ensure that the department would be able to live its motto of “Never turning a child away for the inability to pay.”
