Turtle Creek and Darke County United Way invite all to the 25th annual Golf Outing,

GREENVILLE – Mark your calendars for Sept. 8, to play in the 25th annual Golf Outing for the Darke County United Way with the help of their grand sponsor of the day: Whirlpool Corporation & The KitchenAid® Experience.  The golf committee at the Darke County United Way is excited to be holding the annual outing that day with all proceeds going to the 27 non-profit programs of the United Way for the 2015 campaign.  The campaign goal this year is $375,000.

The committee of Rodney Oda, Zach Newbauer, Dave Keiser, Mike Snyder, Steve Willman, Brian Griesdorn, Dave Connelly, Andy Brown, Matt Jordan, Kara Malone, Ellie Germain and Lauren Henry have begun plans for the event and are very anxious to fill the tournament.

If you are interested in playing contact the United Way at 547-1272, email or call Rodney Oda at 548-3106.   Participation is limited to the first 144 golfers.  The tournament tees off at 12:30 p.m., at Turtle Creek Golf Course.

United Way is honored to have Whirlpool and The KitchenAid® Experience as the lead sponsor for this outing.  United Way is also very excited to have the following co-sponsors helping make this event a success from the start including Anderson Ethanol, LLC, BASF, Boots Breaden, Brethren Retirement Community, Bruns Realty, Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln Mercury, Edward Jones, Family Health, Fry & Company, CPA’s, Greenville Federal, Greenville National Bank, Hittle Buick GMC, Mercer Savings Bank, Midmark Corporation, Second National Bank, The Farmers State Bank & Wayne HealthCare.   The United Way also has an opportunity for other businesses to get involved by sponsoring tee signs for this event.  Call the United Way for more information on sponsorships or donating prizes for raffles.

The golf outing is played as a handicap scramble.  They would like golfers to register by Aug. 25.  The outing includes a golfer gift, deli lunch, buffet style dinner, cart, and greens fees.  This event is a blast and they have a great time with fun competitions such as longest putt, longest drive, hole-in-one, and two holes with prizes to win, including a car from Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln Mercury and a hole with $10,000 from Farmers State Bank.  This is definitely a worthwhile event as you can enjoy a day of golf and your proceeds can give hope to 40% of Darke County residents including youth, seniors, those in crisis, and those seeking self-sufficiency.

Golfers can help make this their biggest outing yet and celebrate 25 years with them.  We encourage both teams and individuals to sign-up.  Mulligans, pink tees, and buy the pro’s shot are also available for purchase.  Now more than ever the United Way needs your partnership.

Representatives from Dave Knapp Ford join with the United Way Golf Committee in announcing the sponsor for a car give-away for a hole-in-one.
