WHITEWATER, Wis. – The 10th Annual Friends of the Program, Ltd. (FOTP) Charity Golf Outing to benefit youth athletics in Whitewater will be held Saturday, August 20 at Prairie Woods Golf Course in Avalon, Wis. The shotgun start will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. This anniversary year is likely to be the largest in the organization’s first ten years as all proceeds will support the Treyton Kilar Field of Dreams project.
“The Board of Directors unanimously supported dedicating this year’s outing soley to the Kilar family’s efforts,” noted FOTP President Jeremy Niemuth. “Within our mission to supporting athletics in Whitewater, we believe this project will have an enduring impact on aspiring young baseball and softball athletes like Treyton. The overall impact will be as widespread for the community as anything we’ve done in the past nine years.”
One month before his 7th birthday, Treyton Kilar’s dreams were cut short when a drunk driver took his young life on September 2, 2010. Committed to keeping his memory alive and wanting to make something positive come from such a horrific act, his family with the support of community has rallied in an effort to build the “Treyton Kilar Field of Dreams” as a way of celebrating Treyton’s life and honoring all those affected by such tragedies.
Along with golf and sponsorship opportunities, a raffle and silent auction will be held to raise additional funds for the $474,000 project. A participant gift, contests, hole prizes and dinner are included in the $110 entry fee.
