Par 4 Kids, a golf tournament fundraiser held on August 2 at the Lynnwood Municipal Golf Course raised $8,993. The money will go toward the Recreation Benefit Fund, which allows opportunities for kids to get into summer camps, swim lessons or anything else on the recreation menu.

“I believe now with the eleventh year of this event, we are very close to raising about $100,000,” Sordel said. “We’re very grateful to all the local businesses and people who participate; this is a very big event for the foundation and the community.”
