Sunny Day for Golf Outing
The sun shone bright and made for a warm day for the annual Golf Outing. Some say it was a little too hot, but they still made it through the course – just with a little sweat! Golfers returned to Grantwood Golf Course in Solon on Friday, June 29. As everyone arrived, they were given a purple t-shirt with Tuffy the lion on the front in gold.
The Winking Lizard served up delicious hamburgers and sausage sandwiches for lunch. After golf, everyone made their way to the indoor banquet room to enjoy a chicken and rib dinner. We would like to thank Jeff and his crew for cooking and serving this delicious food.
A 50/50 raffle was held with prizes given away. A special thank you to Paul Ertel ’71 who each year donates gift certificates for cruises from the Nautica Queen and Pat Carlin ’72 who donated a basket from The Ohio Lottery.
Congratulations to the winning team – Rick Myslenski ’62, Tim Myslenski ’64, Dennis Myslenski ’69 and Colin Myslenski. They took home first place by shooting 12 under par with a score of 59. They each received a nice plaque from Minotas Trophies and a Dicks Sporting Goods gift card.
This golf outing event is our only fundraiser for our alumni association. We raised over $13,000 – one of the largest amounts raised! We couldn’t have done this without the support of our hole sponsors. Mike D’Amato ’79, owner of Nissan of North Olmsted, sponsored a sign on every hole – “Are you Kiddin’ Me!” Your support is greatly appreciated.
We would like to thank everyone who volunteered to sell 50/50 tickets, hand out gifts and help with the skins game – Ben Carlozzo ’71, Rick Cavolo ’74, Frank Hlad ’68, Chris Lynch ’75, Joe Nista ’64 and Terry Wise ’77. Sue brought along a friend of hers to help out – Liz Hoffman. We want to thank her for lending a hand.
What would we do without Sue Wise? She takes on this event each year and works long hours to make sure everything runs smoothly. The golfers know the effort she puts towards keeping the alumni going strong & took up a special collection for her. She was very humbled for this gesture and thanked everyone for the gift.
Please mark your calendar for next year’s outing. It will be Friday, June 28, 2019 at Grantwood Golf Course. We hope to see you there!
