The Seaside Downtown Development Association gave the long-running Seaside Kids, Inc., program a boost Thursday with presentation of a nearly $10,000 check.
Kristin Talamantez and Celeste Kenneally of SDDA delivered $9,967, including proceeds from the Seaside Golf Classic” Charity Golf Tournament and dinner held Aug. 29.
Funds for Seaside Kids benefit free athletic activities for local children.
The organization promotes free sports programs for boys and girls in Clatsop County, primarily from the Seaside, Gearhart and Cannon Beach communities. The organization annually serves about 600 kids, from kindergartners to high school seniors, through its programs, which include baseball, softball, football, golf and free swim days.
This year brought 25 teams to the tournament, Talamantez said, up from 20 teams in 2018.
“While our main goal is downtown Seaside, we like to give back to the community for all they do for us,” Kenneally said.
