The recent Swing for Youth Golf Tournament made a $5,000 donation to the Youth Scholarship Program possible through the efforts of the Friends of the Manteca Parks and Recreation Foundation.

City staffer John Boore made the presentation Friday morning to foundation members at the golf course.

The Manteca Recreation Department offers scholarship assistance to those families in need for a multitude of youth and teen related activities including youth sports, swim lessons, arts classes, dance, self-defense and performing arts classes.

Boore said the donation will enable the city to offer assistance to over 100 students.  The foundation has been in existence since 2007 and has made donations nearing $10,000.
