KETCH awarded $4K from memorial tournament

03/22/2012

The Kansas Elks Training Center for the Handicapped (KETCH) was one of four grant recipients selected to benefit from the CJ Memorial Golf Tournament held this past September.  The $4,000 KETCH was awarded will be used towards the purchase of an $11,000 four-post vehicle lift.

The vehicle lift will be used by the automotive mechanics in the maintenance department to provide critical maintenance of the transportation department’s fleet of vehicles.  With thousands of round trips to persons with disabilities within Sedgwick County annually, reliable transportation services is often a crucial element in the success of adults with developmental disabilities served.  

“I am very grateful for the support KETCH has received from the CJ Memorial over the past several years,” said Ron Pasmore, president/CEO.

The golf tournament is a fundraiser held by the CJ Memorial Foundation, founded by Frank Seitz in memory of his son, CJ Seitz.  CJ attended the KETCH PACE program prior to his passing just a few years ago.  The funds raised are awarded to organizations that were dear to CJ.  Other award recipients include the Derby Free Spirits, Rainbows United, and the ARC of Sedgwick County.
