A total of $64,800 was raised for the Katy Christian Ministries (KCM) to perform critical, life transforming work in the Katy/West Houston community. Katy Christian Ministries serves 12 local zip codes, providing emergency assistance to families and individuals who find themselves in crisis or financial difficulty. These services include flood relief assistance, rental and utility assistance, a long list of critical services for victims of domestic and sexual violence and a Food Pantry for those needing supplemental food and personal care items. Seasonal programs like Red Apple School Supplies and Santa’s Sleigh help families provide extra school materials and Christmas gifts to their children when the money just isn’t there.

“KCM relies on the community to provide the resources that allow us to serve those in need,” said KCM Board President Kent Black. “The annual Golf Tournament is a major source of income for our organization, and we are very pleased with the continued support we receive, both in volunteers and in contributors. Through 19 years of this tournament, we continue to increase the overall donations and revenue, and this year was one of the best!  Thanks to all that have supported and contributed to this effort.”

Fort Bend County Commissioner Andy Meyers was the title sponsor for this year’s event, and Parkway Fellowship claimed the Platinum Sponsorship. “It is truly an honor and a blessing to be able to work in partnership with Katy Christian Ministries,” said Meyers. “I will continue to be a strong advocate and promoter of the organization. Thank you for all the effort and ministries that your staff accomplishes to make Katy a better home for our citizens.”

One hundred and twenty-two golfers turned out to support KCM and enjoy a beautiful day of golf and fellowship for a great cause. Located at Weston Lakes Golf Course, golfers enjoyed grilled burgers, silent auctions, a raffle for a 65” Smart TV, a steak dinner and awards for the tournament winners.

“I am deeply humbled by the outpouring of love and support by everyone involved,” said Deysi Crespo, executive director of KCM. “I’m thankful for the opportunities to come together with a purpose in a unified mission of transforming lives right here in our own community.”
