Date posted: June 15, 2017
The 2017 Golf Classic was a Swingin’ Success!
On Monday, June 12, 160 golfers hit the green to support Stepping Stones at the 2017 Golf Classic!
The 16th annual event netted $80,000 and was presented by Niagara with player gifts sponsored by Republic Plastics. Held at O’Bannon Creek Golf Club in Loveland, golfers enjoyed morning and afternoon flights with exciting hole challenges and prizes. Winner of the Closest-to-the-Pin challenge Dave Reeves won $1000 cash and a weekend Jaguar lease, compliments of Jaguar and Land Rover Cincinnati.
Blue skies and plenty of sunshine made for a wonderful day of golf, that also featured a choose-your-own raffle, breakfast, barbecue lunch by Wicked Hickory and a seated prime rib dinner and awards banquet in the evening. Congratulations to all of the day’s winners and thank you to the attendees and sponsors for supporting Stepping Stones’ programs!
