The second annual Golf Fore Kids’ Sake tournament to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine’s youth mentoring program was held May 30 at the Samoset Resort.

Twenty-six teams competed in the event, which netted nearly $13,000 for BBBSMM. The event was sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank.

“We were very excited by the turnout for this year’s event,” said Alex Gaeth, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine. “We grew the field from 16 teams last year to 26 teams this year. All of the golfers were very generous in their support of our agency, and many local children will benefit as a result of this tournament.”

All proceeds from the tournament will be used locally to support Big/Little matches in Knox, Lincoln and Waldo counties.
