RENO — Think Kindness, a northern Nevada nonprofit organization, is hosting its Inaugural Kindness Classic 2011 at LakeRidge Golf Course at noon on Sept. 16. The Kindness Classic is a fundraiser to inspire acts of kindness within the community. All proceeds will go directly to the Think Kindness organization.

Think Kindness was founded in 2010 with the goal of inspiring kindness within our community and around the world. President and founder Brian Williams hopes the tournament will be a success and continue to add to the already 200,000 documented acts of kindness to date.

“Kindness starts with us,” Williams said in a press release. “I challenge everyone to get involved with this massive community act of kindness. The tournament is just another way to carry out our mission and help out those in need right here in our community.”

Every dollar raised for the nonprofit will have a direct impact on children in northern Nevada. Along with a day filled with golf and networking, there will be an awards dinner and beverages, hole-in-one and long drive contests and a raffle comprised of prizes donated by local businesses. More than 100 players are expected to participate. Registration is still open.

To date, Think Kindness has challenged more than 45,000 students, documented more than 180,000 acts of kindness, collected more than 50,000 shoes for Soles4Souls and received the 2009 Thornton Peace Prize for the impact on the nation’s youth.
