The two annual fundraising events, the Zack Semander Memorial Golf tournament in the Fall, and the Sporting Clays Benefit, in the Spring. These fun-filled events are open to the entire Kinkaid community and are enjoyed by parents, former parents, grandparents, alumni, friends alike.

The Zack Semander Memorial Golf Tournament

Monday, October 17, 2016
BraeBurn Country Club

In 2000, the Kinkaid Alumni Association chose to name Kinkaid's annual golf tournament the Zack Semander Memorial Golf Tournament, in remembrance of and to honor Zack Semander, a beloved math teacher and coach at Kinkaid for more than thirty years. Held in the fall, the tournament is welcome to alumni, parents, former parents, grandparents and friends of the Kinkaid community.

The tournament steering committee holds the tournament at a Houston-area golf course where players enjoy lunch, a full round of golf and the awards reception following the tournament. Proceeds from the golf tournament support the John Germann Fund.

The Kinkaid School Sporting Clays Benefit

Friday, April 21, 2017
Greater Houston Gun Club

Now in its 15th year, the sporting clays benefit is held every spring and alumni, parents, grandparents and friends are welcome to register and shoot in the tournament. Hosted by the event steering committe, the shoot takes place at a local shooting range and typically begins with a noon lunch and games to be followed by the tournament. Afterward, participants and volunteers enjoy snacks and beverages at the awards ceremony.

Proceeds from the Sporting Clays Benefit will go toward a new initiative, a Teaching Internship Program, akin to the “minor league” system in baseball. The Internship will provide a one-year training and mentored experience for high character, high potential teachers and coaches, who have little to no teaching experience when they are hired into our program, e.g. recent college graduates or those looking for a change in career. The funds will be dedicated to the Barbara Cooney Teaching Internship Endowment named for a highly admired retired teacher of sixth grade ancient history. 

For more information about becoming involved with this event, please contact Kate DeWitt at kate.dewitt@kinkaid.org or 713-243-5047.
