Thank you all for your participation in the 2017 IXT Golf Tournament! As you know, every year, IXT hosts this fun event as a small thank you to you for trusting us with your business and to benefit a great organization – Young Women On The Move (YWOM). YWOM works with under-privileged middle school and high school girls in Kansas City, KS, to help them gain knowledge, skills and personal power to become change makers in their lives and communities. Karen and IXT have worked with this organization for several years and this is a key way that IXT gives back and supports others within the KC area.
Thank you for all of your participation, donations and generosity! Whether you donated through product, sponsorship, raffles, mulligans, or were just there to have a wonderful time – you helped us reach an all new high for this wonderful organization! This year, we are excited to share that we had the best response yet, and as a result, IXT was able to provide a support check for $10,000 to this well deserving organization! See attached picture of Karen and Mary Beth Gentry with Young Women on the Move.
