Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition hosts Disc Golf Classic

ROCKPORT - The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition hosted a disc golf tournament to raise money Sunday.

Participants were invited to play nine holes of disc golf at the Samoset Resort in Rockport. The event raised funds for the Coalition, which helps to reduce drug addiction and its consequences.

"It's a place to bring people to have fun, to eat, to socialize, to learn more about the coalition, to learn more about the problem, and I think we're off to a good start," said Ira Mandel, Director of the Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition.

This was the first one, but organizers say they plan on holding the event for years to come.

Kayla joined the ABC 7 & FOX 22 news team in May of 2017. She got into journalism because she loves talking with people, and she's incredibly grateful to share the stories of Mainers throughout the region.

She got her start in broadcasting way back in middle school as a member of a morning announcements TV broadcast club, and her love for the news industry took off from there.

Kayla graduated from Penn State University in 2017 with degrees in broadcast journalism and Spanish. During her time as a student at Penn State, Kayla was an executive producer and reporter for the "Centre County Report", an Emmy award-winning student-run newscast. She studied abroad in Ronda, Spain and traveled to Panama with an international reporting class. Kayla kept busy in college, spending four years working as a student manager in the dining hall.

Kayla grew up in the village of Shawnee-on-Delaware, located in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, so transitioning into life in Vacationland was a piece of cake! A self-described winter fanatic, she loves all things snow related, including hitting the slopes on her snowboard. She also likes hiking, kayaking or doing anything outdoors. She loves meeting new people so if you see her around, be sure to stop and say hi!
