Mark your calendars for Monday, September 10th to enjoy a kickoff celebration for the Darke County United Way with the help of our grand sponsor of the day: Whirlpool Corporation & The KitchenAid® Experience. The golf committee at the Darke County United Way is excited to be holding the 23rd annual golf outing that day with all proceeds going to the 27 non-profit programs of the United Way for the 2013 campaign.. The committee of Rodney Oda, Shane Stonebraker, Dave Keiser, Mike Snyder, Steve Willman, Brian Griesdorn, Dave Connelly, and Lauren Henry have begun plans for the event and are very anxious to fill the tournament. If you are interested in playing please contact the United Way at 937-547-1272 or download our registration materials at www.darkecountyunitedway.org. Participation is limited to the first 144 golfers for the tournament. The tournament is at Turtle Creek Golf Course with a shotgun start at 12:45 pm immediately following the United Way’s Community Kickoff Luncheon.
United Way is honored to have Whirlpool and The KitchenAid® Experience as the lead sponsor for this outing.

The golf outing is played as a best ball scramble. We would like golfers to register by August 17th. The outing includes a golfer gift, lunch, buffet style dinner, cart, and greens fees. This event is a blast and we have a great time with fun competitions such as longest putt, longest drive, hole-in-one, and two holes with prizes to win, including a car from Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln Mercury and a hole with $10,000 from Farmers State Bank. This is definitely a worthwhile event as you can enjoy a day of golf and your proceeds can give hope to 40% of Darke County residents including youth, seniors, those in crisis, and those seeking self-sufficiency.
