On Oct. 5, ConocoPhillips hosted its Fifth Annual Legacy Golf Tournament at the River Bend Golf Club in Floresville, Texas to raise scholarship funds for Karnes County high school seniors. This year, 60 sponsors and 144 golfers on 36 teams raised $213,000. The fundraiser benefits all Karnes County schools (Runge, Karnes City, Kenedy and Falls City). A total of $25,000 will be given each year in scholarships. Over the past five years, $720,000 has been raised by the Legacy Scholarship Golf Tournament. Kenedy ISD serves as the fiscal agent for the funds and will invest the surplus of the monies to be used in the future. Through 2018, $100,000 has been awarded to 20 scholarship recipients. Scholarship applications are due April 15, 2019. A committee of ConocoPhillips employees will review and rank applications and award the scholarships prior to graduation.
