For nine years, Young Singers of the Palm Beaches and The Honda Classic have teamed up to provide arts benefits to children in our community. This year their partnership was a sure-fire hole in one! Receiving over $15,000 in grants from The Honda Classic Cares, Young Singers of the Palm Beaches will be able to provide multiple scholarships to their organization to children in Palm Beach County.
The relationship between the two organizations began years ago when Young Singers of the Palm Beaches was a participant in Birdies for Children, a program of The Honda Classic which benefits local charities. For the last several years, The Honda Classic Cares host organization, Children’s Healthcare Charities, has provided grants to non-profits which enhance the health and welfare of children in Palm Beach County, and Young Singers has been a recipient of that grant.
As a gesture of appreciation, Young Singers has manned concession booths at The Honda Classic, providing volunteers to fill shifts over the week-long tournament, and exchanging good will throughout the community. The Honda Classic is a world-renowned golf tournament held annually at the PGA National Resort and Spa.
Young Singers of the Palm Beaches is a community children’s choir, currently in its 14th season. Their core program, based at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach, serves over 350 singers in six choirs. Their Choir in the Glades, after-school, and summer outreach programs provide an addition 1,200 Palm Beach County children with vocal and music enrichment.
