The 6th Annual Peace for Pearland Golf Tournament – A Hole-In-One For The Arts - presented by Peace for Pearland “A Nonprofit for the Arts” in partnership with the Foundation for Creative Leadership and Peace Church began five years ago with the vision of uniting folks across our city to raise funds to truly make a difference in Pearland and beyond.
Peace for Pearland, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, was created in 2017 to unite our Pearland community for peace through the visual and performing arts by building partnerships with diverse arts organizations, supporting local arts partners in their endeavors and providing opportunities for artistic expression. These include, but not limited to, children and adult dramas, art shows and musical performances. In 2019, we plan to create new and strengthen current partnerships, volunteer and support various arts events to aid in growing awareness for the needs of the Pearland arts community. Our ultimate vision is to collaborate with area arts organizations to build a multipurpose center that will continue to strengthen the arts and culture of Pearland. With your support of our annual golf tournament, our dream becomes closer to a reality each year!
Consistent with our vision, one beneficiary of the tournament will be the Foundation for Creative Leadership, a 501(c)(3) organization. Led by co-founder and tournament co-chair, Kelly (Kronfeld) Gonzalez, this nonprofit provides leadership opportunities through artistic avenues for both children and adults. The Foundation for Creative Leadership has been involved in notable art projects and murals in the Pearland and surrounding areas, as well as offering art camp scholarships and collaborating with other nonprofits to provide instruction in after school art programs.

Donations will also benefit the wonderful outreach programs of Peace Church Pearland and help support their annual Mission Trips. Peace Church hosts a variety of events that makes a difference, help people thrive and blesses our community such as a free Community Easter Egg Hunt in the spring, a free Vacation Bible School during the summer and a free Community Trunk or Treat event in the fall.
