3rd Annual Topgolf YouThrive Event 2018

On May 21st, 2018, YouThrive held their 3rd Annual Topgolf Event supporting our local foster youth as they transition to adulthood.

There are some unsettling statistics for foster children aging out of foster care such as:
71% of girls aging out of foster care, will be pregnant or have a child by the age of 21. (nfyiadmin, 2017)

Tim Gay, of Overland Park, founded YouThrive to assist teens aging out of the foster care system in Wyandotte and Johnson counties. Organizations like YouThrive is helping to educate and support foster children as they become adults. YouThrive’s mission is to engage the community to empower, equip, and support youth as they make the transition from foster care to becoming healthy and contributing adults.

Commercial Capital was honored to be a sponsor for their 3rd annual event. With events like these, the Kansas City community becomes more than just names and faces, but family.
