Kinkaid holds 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.
Zack Semander Memorial Golf Tournament
In 2000, the Kinkaid Alumni Association chose to name Kinkaid's annual golf tournament the Zack Semander Memorial Golf Tournament, in remembrance 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 Zack Semander Endowed Scholarship Fund and the Tom Wey Scholarship.

The Kinkaid School Sporting Clays Benefit
Now in its tenth 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 go toward the Steven Hetrick Interim Term Scholarship Endowment, established in 2001 in memory of Terry and (Nurse) Bonnie Hetrick's son. This fund was created to help deserving students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to participate fully in the programs offered during Interim Term.
