Stuff the Bus Foundation Announces ELPO Law Topgolf Classic
by Mandy Hicks
The Stuff the Bus Foundation has announced that the inaugural ELPO Law Topgolf Classic will take place on Sunday, March 8th at 12:30pm. The event serves as a golf scramble fundraiser at Topgolf in Nashville, TN. Proceeds from the event will benefit children and families across South Central Kentucky through the Stuff the Bus Foundation.
Stuff the Bus began in 2005 with an event hosted by local radio personality Tony Rose along with a dedicated group of volunteers who lived inside school buses until they were filled with school supplies that were then donated to kids in over ten counties. Over the next decade and more, hundreds of tons of school supplies were given directly to schools, children and families as a result of the efforts of Stuff the Bus. Soon those who were involved with Stuff the Bus realized that the needs of those they were serving were growing, and therefore decided that Stuff the Bus needed to grow as well. Thus, the formation of the Stuff the Bus Foundation in 2018.
The Stuff the Bus Foundation evolved the efforts of a four day event into a 365 day a year provider working to impact the lives of children throughout Southern Kentucky – not just at back to school time, but throughout the year. The Stuff the Bus Foundation’s focus remains on “leveling the playing field for children in South Central Kentucky.” Every item and dollar collected stays local to assist children, teachers, and classrooms across Southern Kentucky. Ranging from providing essential school supplies to start the academic year, backpack food for children on weekends and holidays, to scholarships for high school students and meals for families in need during Thanksgiving and Christmas, students from Kindergarten through High School benefit from the assistance provided by the Stuff the Bus Foundation. Stuff the Bus also awards grants to help in the funding of other local agencies that have the same core values as the Stuff the Bus Foundation.
Individuals and organizations throughout South Central Kentucky who would like to support the Stuff the Bus Foundation through the ELPO Law Topgolf Classic can do so via a corporate sponsorship and/or the formation of a six person team.
