HEDGESVILLE – While most Labor Day celebrations include barbecues and family gatherings, locals of Frederick Aurora, Sage, and Vaiya Kahn have spent the holiday weekend differently, picking up stray golf balls at The Woods Resort.

During the holidays, the Vahns visited their grandparents, Keith and Pam Casper, at their home in Hedgesville. Noting the abundance of golf balls in the resort, children aged 9, 8 and 6 test their business skills by asking to sell replacement balls.

Instead of selling them, the Caspers suggested that their grandchildren return to a local charity with golfers’ donations for the balls.

“When they looked for golf balls in the forest, they found a good amount and cleaned them,” said father Matt Vahn. “They started coming up with ideas, and my mom advised them to choose a charity to donate the proceeds to.”

In total, the Vahns raised $ 108 for the Eastern Panhandle Empowerment Center (EPEC).

“They felt called to donate to that charity because it helps women in need,” Matt Vahn said. “I thought it was really innovative and I’m really proud of it.”

The Vahns and Caspers would also like to thank all the golfers who contributed to EPEC.

“They are such good guys, and they always try to help and give back,” said Matt Vahn. “I hope, in the future, we can continue to use their entrepreneurial skills for a good cause.”
