Bailey & Wyant, PLLC Associate Jeffrey Carder has been elected to the board of Kids' Chance of West Virginia, Inc. Being part of the community means we are invested in the lives of those we serve. Kids' Chance of West Virginia is a nonprofit scholarship fund which grants educational scholarships to the sons and daughters of West Virginia residents who suffered a serious, catastrophic or fatal workplace injury or illness. Jeffrey works closely with our workers' compensation clients and is able to see firsthand what a workplace injury means for families, especially the children of those families.
After reviewing similar programs in other states, Governor Cecil H Underwood created the Kids' Chance Task Force in September of 1998. This ongoing program is designed to help West Virginia's kids for years to come. Scholarship funds come through fully tax-deductible donations from individuals, companies, foundations and organizations active in workers' compensation matters.
So far, Jeffrey has been active in helping kick-off Kids' Chance of West Virginia's summer fundraiser, the 2019 Kids' Chance Golf Tournament. The golf tournament will be held at Edgewood County Club in Charleston on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. It is $100 per person or $375 per a team of four. The fee includes green fees, golf cart, food, beverages and more.
If you're not a golfer but would still like to participate, tournament and hole sponsorships are also available. Please feel free to contact Kids' Chance of West Virginia for further details at (304) 269-1311 or via email at [email protected].
