The Kinark Foundation





It is with deep regret that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Kinark Classic Golf Tournament scheduled on May 25, 2020.

This decision was not taken lightly, but we feel that it is the responsible thing to do under the pandemic circumstances we are faced with.

Our very good friends at Pheasant Run Golf Club are not sure when they will be able to open the golf course. Kinark staff and volunteers who provide hundreds of manpower hours to organize the tournament are very busy responding to the needs of our clients at this challenging time to devote time to the golf event. And our loyal sponsors and our golfing friends are currently very busy keeping their families safe and their businesses viable. For these reasons, it is best for us to cancel the tournament. If you have any questions, please contact us.

All of us at the Kinark Foundation thank you for your ongoing support. It is our hope that you all stay safe and healthy.
