Golf outing holds 12th year to benefit local families

GREENVILLE – The Kenny Monnier Memorial golf outing will be held Saturday, June 21 at the Stillwater golf course in Webster. This is the 12th year for the annual event that raises money for local families affected by cancer.

The outing is in honor of former Bradford resident Kenny Monnier who battled Hodgkin disease for over 17 years before dying at the age of 34 years old. According to lifelong friends and co-founders of the organization, Ralph “Beener” Wood and Bobby Floyd, Kenny was an avid golfer and always found a way to be involved in any outing that helped benefit a cause. Kenny was even featured in an edition of ProHealth Magazine discussing bone marrow treatment and battling cancer.

“Kenny was a very generous person and never complained about anything,” Wood told The Early Bird.

“He was the most courageous person I have ever met,” Floyd added.

Since starting the benefit, the Kenny Monnier Memorial has funded over 85 families in Darke and Miami counties. The event consists of 36 teams with 144 overall players, approximately 80 sponsors donate, including a free Ford Focus automobile for a player that hits a hole-in-one from Dave Knapp Ford, Lincoln.
