Bridges to College Benefit...
Third Annual Karlh McCallister Golf Outing
Set for June 23

(GREENVILLE) Plans are underway for the Third Annual Karlh McCallister Memorial Golf Outing. This year’s outing is planned for Saturday, June 23, at the Turtle Creek Golf Course, formerly the Greenville Golf Course. Again this year, proceeds will benefit Bridges to College.

The golf outing is sponsored in memory of Greenville resident and businessman Karlh McCallister who helped form the Darke County College Access Program, now Bridges to College, in 2006. Bridges to College helps local high school students go to college through one-on-one mentoring, educational programs, and needs-based scholarships.

Last year’s tournament raised more than $13,000 for Bridges to College, a non-profit organization that helps Greenville and Ansonia High School students.

“We’ve had tremendous support from the community, family and friends,” said Marlise McCallister, Karlh’s daughter and organizer of this year’s outing. “My father would have been pleased with the turnout and the support for Bridges to College.”

Again this year, the outing is on a Saturday so that more people can participate.

 “Like last year, we will use the same four-person scramble format,” McCallister said. “We hope golfers will come out, have an enjoyable afternoon and support a worthy cause.”

McCallister said this year’s outing will have a raffle as well as an auction that will feature some outstanding prizes.

“We will keep people informed of the raffle and auction items as the outing date approaches,” McCallister said.

Within the next several weeks, information about the outing, sponsorship information and the entry form will be posted online at the Bridges to College website, For more information about the outing, contact Marlise McCallister at 423-2445.
