ZackFest is our annual BBQ, Golf Scramble, and Cornhole tournament at Bay Hills Golf Club in Arnold, 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 2017 event saw tremendous support from the local business community with over 30 corporate 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.
Since its inception, the Zachary Gerald Knight Foundation has awarded over $26,000 to 31 graduating seniors from Severna Park High School and Salisbury University. Next year, we plan on recognizing our largest number of award recipients as we continue to grow and operate within the mission of the Foundation.
