Owens Community College Hosts
Inaugural Golf Classic, Monday, May 12
Area residents are invited to enjoy a day of golf and entertainment to support the alumni programs at Owens Community College’s inaugural Golf Classic on Monday, May 12.
Organized by the Owens Alumni Association’s Steering Committee, the golf outing will occur at the historic Toledo Country Club, overlooking the Maumee River in Toledo. The event will feature 18-holes of golf at the oldest country club in Northwest Ohio, lunch, cocktails/hors d'oeuvres and an awards program. Sky Bank will serve as the cart sponsor for the event.
"Owens Community College’s Alumni Association is honored to host a community-wide event in which the proceeds will immediately benefit the enhancement of educational resources, enabling current and future alumni to pursue their career aspirations," said Laura Moore, Owens Manager of Alumni Affairs. "The inaugural Golf Classic is a unique opportunity for business and industry, as well as Owens alumni, to provide continued support for higher education, ensuring our students with opportunities for lifelong learning."
Moore added, "The initial response by the Northwest Ohio community toward the event has been overwhelming and spots for participating teams are filling up fast. I expect the inaugural Golf Classic to be a first class event and a fun, filled day of golf, benefiting a worthy cause."
Since opening its doors in 1965, Owens Community College has provided higher education to more than 250,000 students. Owens’ Alumni Association is committed to the personal and professional success of alumni and students through the ongoing development of value-added programs, events and services.
The four-person scramble golf competition will begin with a shotgun start at 1:30 p.m. Lunch will precede the golf from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. The day will conclude with participants reminiscing about their golfing experience over cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at 6:30 p.m. A short program will occur at this time to recognize the top foursome.
