Jack showed us how to live life to the fullest and cherish those special moments with family and friends. His legacy lives on through all of us and became the inspiration to establish the Jack B. Kodesh Foundation.
We are proud to announce the fifth edition of the Jack B Kodesh Memorial Golf Tournament. It will once again be held at the magnificent TPC Dorado Beach., East Championship Course at the Ritz Carlton Reserve.
“Celebrating Jack’s love for golf, the tournament will benefit the Jack B Kodesh Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to addressing important issues affecting Puerto Rico’s under-served children, such as education, youth development, health and wellness.
Last year’s tournament was a resounding success. Our goal was to replicate Jack’s favorite pastimes: golf, family, and friends. Our event proved to be a fun, amicable, and quality outing with the purpose of making a difference in Puerto Rico’s education.
Thanks to last year‘s sponsor contributions, the JBK Foundation was able to donate for a forth consecutive year $40,000 to Instituto Nueva Escuela (INE). The donation as previous years was used to continue funding INE’s Endowment Fund which helps INE secure additional capital to continue expanding their work with public schools in Puerto Rico and be less dependent on government funds. Currently INE’s network includes 50 public schools. Montessori education continues to be a true differentiator in Puerto Rico’s public school system led by INE’s network of schools. INE schools not only enhance and elevate the educational experience of its students, but they also represent beacons of hope and advancement within their respective communities. INE continues working on increasing its network of schools and expects to reach 100 schools by 2020.
INE is more committed than ever to continue growing and maintaining its network of schools despite facing significant challenges such as public school consolidation and lack of government funding. The JBK foundation has donated $160,000 in the last four years to support such an important cause.
Please join the JBK Foundation on this crusade and be part of this innovative educational movement. For more info visit: www.inepr.com
