Owens Alumni Association Golf Outing Raises Over $44,500 in Support of Scholarships

More than 100 area residents enjoyed a day of golf and entertainment in support of alumni programs as Owens Community College's Alumni Association held its Second Annual Golf Classic. The 27-team event raised a record-setting $44,500 to benefit scholarship endeavors.

"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 Janet Meacham, Owens President of the Alumni Association. "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 the historic Belmont Country Club in Perrysburg. The event featured 18- holes of golf, lunch, dinner and an awards program. The Golf Classic event sponsor was Sky Bank, while Cooper Tire and Rubber Co. served as the cart sponsor. Serving as the host sponsor was Ohio Logistics/Findlay's Tall Timbers Distribution Centers.

The championship team of the four-person scramble was sponsored by Habitec Security in Sylvania. Team members included Bob Seymour of Maumee, Rick Niehaus of Oregon, Bill Ivoska of Perrysburg and Jim Welling of Northwood.
