Acknowledging positive role models who value kindness and display leadership skills.
ZackFest is our annual BBQ, Golf Scramble, and Cornhole tournament. This year we are moving the tournament to Compass Pointe Golf Club in Pasadena, MD!
The event continues to grow every year and this past year we had over 200 attendees from the Severna Park, Annapolis, Baltimore, and Salisbury communities. In addition, the 2018 event saw tremendous support from the local business community with over 50 corporate and personal sponsorships. The money raised from this event will be used to continue to further the mission of the Zachary Gerald Knight Foundation.
The foundation prides itself on celebrating individuals who truly demonstrate leadership skills and show compassion and concern for others through acts of kindness and selflessness. We strive to honor those who uplift and set a positive example for those around them. Since the criteria we value cannot solely be measured in the classroom or on the sporting field, we rely on input from community members, faculty, peers, and others who note positive behaviors, acts of kindness, and leadership traits in the nominee.
By the end of 2019, we will have distributed almost $40,000 to 39 young adults from Severna Park High School and Salisbury University.
