To the Editor:
Christmas in July Golf Scramble and fundraiser in memory of Staci Jo Blythe will take place on Saturday, July 19, at the Stillwater Valley Gold Club in Versailles, with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. All proceeds from this event will be used to celebrate Christmas with needs children from our area in memory of Staci Jo Blythe.
Entries and donations must be received by Thursday, July 15. Hole sponsors are available and very much appreciated with the cost of $50 for each hole. These can be sent to the golf course at 9235 Seibt Rd., Versailles, OH 45380 or to Dusty Blythe at 114 E. Franklin St., Troy, OH 45373. Information concerning entry fees and forms is available at Stillwater Valley Golf Club on their website.
This is the fourth year for this fundraiser. It only continues because of the generosity of people and because of its purpose — 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. She continued to “adopt” needy kids at Christmas for this purpose even when she was in her physical battle and not feeling well.
This fundraiser has helped close to 500 children in the past three years. Please keep this event in your prayers for blessings and success so we can continue what Staci started.
Thank you and God Bless,
The Blythe Family
