BINGHAMTON N.Y – Today we take one last look at a beneficiary of this

week’s Jim Mudcat Grant All-Star Golf Tournament.

The Boys and Girls Club of Binghamton is one of the 4 non-profits that

receives 10 thousand dollars from the tournament every year.

Executive Director Marybeth Smith says one of the programs the All-Star

Golf plays a big role in helping is their Power Hour.

It’s an after school program for kids that provides any help to prepare

students for school such as tutoring, mentoring and also provides dinner.

Smith says the All-Star golf donation is essential to the club’s operation.

“Our children need us. These are children that really count on us to help

them with everyday things. Including homework, studying for test and

having their meals and without this it’s tough. We need all the support we

can get, and the funds we get from this really go a long way in helping our

members,” says Smith.

The Boys and Girls Club provides a wide variety of programming for kids

including, art, dance, computers and sports.

The 18th Annual All-Star Golf Tournament will be taking place at the Links

at Hiawatha this Thursday.
