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
“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
“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, www.bridges2college.org. For more
