Sentry hosts tree planting ceremonies for mask-design contest
For the City Times
STEVENS POINT – The Sentry Insurance Foundation conducted a tree planting and donation ceremony at the Schmeeckle Reserve on May 20, in recognition of the mask design contest Sentry held for the 2021 Tournament of Champions PGA Tour event held on Maui in January.
“The contest invited youth participants in both Maui and Stevens Point to submit designs that would be featured on the masks handed out during the PGA Tour Sentry Tournament of Champions. Sentry created the initiative to further deepen the bond held between Stevens Point and Maui as a part of Sentry’s sponsorship of the Sentry Tournament of Champions,” a Sentry release stated.
The ceremony honored Kyler Strona, the Maui-based winner of the mask design contest and Lillian Lepak, the Stevens Point-based winner.
Sentry planted a tree in Kyler’s name at Schmeeckle Reserve. As part of the ceremony, Sentry will make a $3,000 donation to Lepak’s high school – Pacelli Catholic.
Sentry hosts the second part of the ceremony on Maui with a tree to be planted at Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve in honor of Lepak and a donation of $3,000 in Kyler’s name to King Kamehameha III Elementary, his Maui-based school.
