Owens Alumni Association Golf Outing Raises More than $27,700 in Support of Scholarships
One hundred sixteen area residents recently enjoyed a day of golf and entertainment in support of alumni scholarship programs as Owens Community College’s Alumni Association held its tenth annual Golf Classic. The 29-team event netted over $27,700 to benefit scholarship endeavors.
Since its inception, the Owens event has netted over $288,800 to support Owens students pursuing a college education and their career aspirations.
“Owens Community College’s Alumni Association is proud to once again host a community-wide event in which the proceeds benefit students pursuing a college education,” said Laura Moore, Owens Alumni Association Executive Director.“The Golf Classic was a huge success and would not have been possible without the overwhelming support of Northwest Ohio’s business and industry, as well as Owens alumni. Their generous contributions will go along way in ensuring our students with opportunities for lifelong learning.”
Organized by the Owens Alumni Association’s steering committee, the golf outing was held at Belmont Country Club in Perrysburg. The event featured 18-holes of golf, lunch, grazing dinner and an awards program. The Golf Classic event sponsors were Hylant Group and Hylant Administrative Services. In addition, Metzgers Printing + Mailing was the print sponsor.
The championship team of the four-person scramble was sponsored by Owens Athletics. Team members included Chris Lieber of Toledo, Charlie Upchurch of Maumee, Josh Williams of Perrysburg and Jon Moyer of Arcadia.
