Golf event raises funds for children

To the Editor:

The Christmas in July Golf Scramble and Fundraiser, in memory of Staci Jo Blythe, will take place on Saturday, July 16, at the Stillwater Valley Golf Club with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.

All proceeds from this event will be be used to celebrate Christmas with needy kids from our area in memory of Staci. Last year we were able to help the needy kids at the University of Dayton during their Christmas on Campus activities.

We also donated to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus for the children with cancer who receive treatment at the James Cancer Hospital at Ohio State University, where Staci was also a patient at different times throughout her battle.

This is the sixth year for this fundraiser and have helped close to 1,000 kids so far, and with your help we will be able to continue this event. It is only possible because of the generosity of people and 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.

Entries and donations must be received by Tuesday, July 12. Hole sponsors are available and very much appreciated with the cost of $50 for each hole. These can be sent to Stillwater Valley Golf Club at 9235 Seibt Road, Bradford, OH 45308. Information concerning entry fees and forms are available at the golf course or on their website.

Please keep this event in your prayers for blessings and success so we can continue what Staci started.
