$10,000 Hole-in-One Winner, Evelyn Lenski

DSC_1871Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mercer, Auglaize, & Van Wert Counties couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate the 20th Annual Golf for Kids’ Sake at the Mercer County Elks Golf Course. The weather was perfect for a day at the golf course on July 27th. Thanks to all the corporations that sponsored the event along with all the golfers that came out and supported youth mentoring. We were able to raise $9,000 to put towards the various youth mentoring programs that Big Brothers Big Sisters offers in Mercer, Auglaize, & Van Wert Counties.

To add extra excitement to the day Evelyn Lenski of Lima, Ohio and a member of one of Katterhenry Investment Group Teams, knocked in a hole-in-one on the 16th green with a prize of $10,000. We want to thank Katterhenry Investment Group for being the Event Sponsor and Grand Lake Eye Care for sponsoring our Hole-in-One prizes.

The 1st Place Women’s team was Tami Sanford, Amy Burke, Pam Vossler, and Kelly Sheffield, the 1st Place Men’s Team was sponsored by Katterhenry Investment Group, and the 1st Place Co-Ed team was sponsored by Cooper Farms. Congratulations to all the teams and raffle prize winners.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is able to offer mentors to over 200 children throughout Mercer, Auglaize, & Van Wert Counties. There are still 10 youth are our waiting list to be matched in our Community Based Program and the agency is in great need for volunteers in our Lunch Club Program at Parkway.
