Texans Can Academies - Dallas Cares for Kids Golf
Texans Can Academies hosted another successful annual Dallas Cares for Kids Golf Classic. The tournament took place on October 5, 2020, at Las Colinas Country Club and serves as one of the premier golf tournaments in the Dallas community. Pro Football Hall of Famer Tim Brown was the Celebrity Host.
All proceeds from the Dallas Care for Kids Golf Classic are dedicated to providing every Texans Can Academies student in Dallas the opportunity to pursue their dreams while removing barriers that keep them from attaining their education and provides solutions to the 86% of Texans Can Academies students who live below the poverty line. Proceeds help fund school uniforms for students that cannot afford them, eye exams and glasses for students so they can focus better in classes, dental services to low-income students, basic needs for students like food and clothing, and professional counseling and mental health services available to students 24/7, year-round.
Texans Can Academies is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with six Dallas-area high school campuses that welcome all students aged 14 to 21. Texans Can Academies schools work with disadvantaged and at-risk youth statewide who have struggled in a traditional high school setting and would not otherwise have the chance at a diploma. The organization believes providing the highest quality education for all students is necessary in ensuring their economic independence.
