5th Annual Friends of Children Services Golf Outing to benefit the Ashtabula County Children’s Trust Fund will be held on Sept. 10 at Hickory Grove Golf Course
This event is the only fundraiser for the Children’s Trust Fund which has been established to provide goods, services and activities for foster children. These include things like Homecoming and Prom dresses, fees for extra-curricular activities, musical instrument rental, camps, senior pictures, class trips and anything else that helps these children have a little normalcy in their lives. Last year, thanks to the Trust fund, 40 foster children got to participate in activities they may not have otherwise been able to do. Life is tough enough for our foster children; please consider helping bring some fun and joy to their lives by participating in this year’s golf outing. We are looking for golfers, hole sponsors, door prizes and items for our Chinese auction.
The golf outing features a 4-person scramble with a shotgun start at 9:00; registration begins at 8:00. Cost is $260 per team which includes coffee and donuts in the morning; hotdogs and hamburgers at the turn; with beverages being provided all day long. A pulled pork dinner will be served at the finish.
This year’s outing will offer a $10,000 hole-in-one prize, plus other hole-in-one prizes. Cash prizes for 1st, 2nd place teams and 3rd place is to be determined by drawing as well as cash prizes for longest drive and closest to the pin. Golfers can also participate in a Skins game and a 50/50 drawing.
If you are not a golfer, but would like to help, you can be a hole sponsor for $100 or a half hole sponsor for $50. We also accept donation for door prizes and items to be used in a Chinese auction.
