Nice turnout for Kevin D. Korenthal benefit Frisbee Golf tournament Saturday at Santa Clarita Central Park.

stevepetzoldThe Frisbee Golf Fundraiser for Kevin Korenthal was an awesome success Saturday morning. Approximately 30 people including some of Santa Clarita’s most notable citizens stopped by Central Park to play Frisbee Golf, drop off donations, and spend time together.

Prior to leaving for the course, many people shared their feeling of love and respect for Kevin Korenthal. A common theme was the passion and zest that Kevin shows for life and helping others. More than $1,500 was contributed at the event site and delivered to the Korenthal family.

Kevin is recovering at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital after being struck by a car while riding his bike last weekend on Sand Canyon Road. Kevin asks that we pray for a full recovery from the injuries he suffered. With a smile, Kevin said that “quick was good,” but he is patient enough to wait for complete healing.

Can you imagine being on the long flight from Chicago to Burbank, and as you are preparing to land, you get word you’d be landing in a pasture near a dry wash between Saugus and Newhall? That’s about how the landing field looked. Gravel and grass for a runway. A few lights for early and late landings.
