The 29th Annual Harrison Mayor’s Fund Golf Outing is Sept. 19 at Grand Oak Golf Club in West Harrison. The outing is an important source of income for the Harrison Mayor’s Fund, a charitable organization dedicated to helping those in need of financial assistance in the greater Harrison community. It was started 60 years ago, and is run by community volunteers. Councilwoman Jean Wilson currently serves as president of the organization.
The Outing will include contests for the longest drive, closest to the pin and hole in one. Tee times begin at 8 a.m. and a boxed lunch will be provided. The cost is $80 per golfer.
The Mayor’s Fund helps the community in three key ways.
- The Mayor’s Fund is always available to provide a hand up for local families in a time of crisis. The Fund provides thousands of dollars’ worth of grocery vouchers, food pantry items, and assistance paying rent, utilities, or medical costs. This is conducted through the assistance of another local charity, Christ’s Loving Hands.
- During the holiday season, the Mayor’s Fund partners with local churches and schools to assist about 150 families with food, coats and even toys for young children.
- As budget allows, the Fund is providing scholarships for graduating seniors who have been involved in City recreation events or Mayor’s Fund activities.
To participate in the golf outing, complete a registration form and mail with payment by Sept. 4 to PO Box 471, Harrison, Ohio 45030.
