Letter: Annual golf fundraiser returns

To the Editor:

The 10th annual Christmas in July Golf Fundraiser in Memory of Staci Blythe will be held on Saturday, July 18, at Stillwater Valley Golf Club.

All proceeds from this event will be used to provide Christmas gifts for needy kids in our area, as well as kids who are inpatient at Nationwide Children’s Hospital who receive treatment at the James Cancers Hospital at Ohio State University where Staci also received treatment.

Being with family, celebrating the birth of Jesus, and putting a smile on an unknown child’s face was the highlight of Staci’s Christmas.

The format for this event will be a four-person scramble with a Peoria Handicap System and a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Registration forms are available at the golf course.

Hole sponsorships are available for $50 and can be sent to the Stillwater Valley Golf Club at 9235 Seibt Rd., Bradford, OH 45308.

Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 14.

This event may look a little different this year because of the COVID-19 but the purpose remains the same … to put a smile on a child’s face on Christmas morning!

The family asks that you please keep this event in your prayers that more children might be helped this Christmas season.

Dr. Forrest Blythe
