United States Navy Captain David Schnell enjoys giving back to his community through various charitable activities. Captain David Schnell currently serves as an active counselor for Royal Family KIDS, a nonprofit organization that provides a network of camps and mentor clubs for children who have been abused or neglected.

Royal Family KIDS works to improve the lives of the many American children who suffer from neglect, abandonment, or abuse. Since the organization’s founding in 1985, 80 thousand children in need have enrolled in its camps, which provide activities like games, sports, hiking, and swimming, in a fun and safe environment.

Each year, a golf tournament is held for the benefit of Royal Family KIDS. This year’s RFK Golf Tournament will take place on May 20, 2016, at Strawberry Farms in Irvine, California. Guests of the tournament will receive a lunch (optional), appetizers and cocktails, a post-tournament fiesta dinner, and dessert. Guests may register as an individual golfer, register a foursome, or register as a corporate sponsor. There are various sponsorship opportunities, ranging from three $1,000 minor sponsorship opportunities to larger sponsorships, starting with the $1,500 BRONZE Sponsorship, which includes two complimentary players and an inclusion of the sponsor’s logo on all event signage and the event program.
