Dorchester Star - - Regional -

CAM­BRIDGE — RPS ISG In­ter­na­tional of Cam­bridge re­cently held its fifth an­nual Disc Golf Tour­na­ment, rais­ing a record $14,315 to ben­e­fit United Way’s Imag­i­na­tion Li­brary pro­gram.

Thirty-six lo­cal busi­ness teams com­peted to raise funds for the pro­gram, which pro­vides free, home­de­liv­ered books each month to lo­cal chil­dren, from in­fants to age 5.

“This year was the most suc­cess­ful disc golf tour­na­ment to date. It’s heart­warm­ing to see our busi­ness com­mu­nity come to­gether to en­sure the kin­der­garten readi­ness of chil­dren on the Lower Shore,” said Dean Good­win, mar­ket­ing man­ager of RPS ISG In­ter­na­tional and event co­or­di­na­tor for the tour­na­ment.

The Imag­i­na­tion Li­brary Lit­er­acy Pro­gram is ad­min­is­tered by the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore, and has dis­trib­uted more than 81,000 books to nearly 4,000 chil­dren in Dorch­ester, Som­er­set, Wi­comico and Worces­ter coun­ties since its in­cep­tion in 2012.

The pro­ceeds of the tour­na­ment will pro­vide more than 6,600 books to lo­cal chil­dren.

“We con­tinue to be amazed at the lead­er­ship RPS ISG In­ter­na­tional pro­vides each year with this event. Thanks to their cre­ative sup­port, lo­cal chil­dren and their par­ents will have the ma­te­ri­als they need to foster a love of read­ing and learn­ing,” said Kath­leen Mommé, United Way ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor.
