Graceworks golf outing raises more than $37,000

024More than $37,000 was raised during the 17th annual Graceworks golf outing, held July 17, 2015 at the Golf Club at Yankee Trace. Funds raised will benefit Graceworks Lutheran Services, based in Centerville, Ohio.

Graceworks provides residential and community services for older adults and persons who have disabilities or financial challenges, in more than 50 locations in southwestern Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.

Participants learned more about Graceworks and enjoyed awards and prizes during a dinner following the golfing. Kelly Bergstrom, Services Manager for Graceworks Enhanced Living, told a story about a volunteer who formed a special bond with the residents of  a particular Beavercreek group home.

Light of Christ Lutheran Church (Bob Emerson, Cliff Dungy, Mike Quigg, Bill Walker) won the Congregation Trophy. McGohan Brabender was the title sponsor of the event.
