On Tuesday, October 7, 2014, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas (BGCD) hosted its 9th Annual Corporate Cup golf tournament, presented by Kimberly-Clark Corporation.

The day included an 18-hole traditional golf tournament, and at the conclusion of the tournament, “Cool Kids,” which are Boys & Girls Club members, greeted the players with many thanks for their support and handed them cold water and towels. Following the tournament, golfers enjoyed a cocktail hour and dinner while the judges tallied up the winners.

Due to its success, Corporate Cup is able to provide funding to further Boys & Girls Clubs of Dallas’ effective and impactful programs, such as Academic Success and Collegiate STEPS.

The Academic Success program reinforces and enhances the skills and knowledge that young people learn at school. The success of this program has been exceptional. The 2012-2013 school year resulted in 98 percent of all BGCD youth progressing to the next grade level and 69 percent maintained an A/B grade average. Individuals with below a B grade received Sylvan Tutoring.

Collegiate STEPS prepares high school students for higher education and is also producing extraordinary results. BGCD partners with the Junior League of Dallas, which provides a comprehensive program for students to complete the required applications for admission and scholarships. During the 2012-2013 school year, 100 percent of Collegiate STEPS seniors graduated high school and went on to higher education.
