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. Bonnie Smith, Administrator, Graceworks at Home, told a story illustrating how Graceworks at Home provides health, therapy and personal care services to individuals who continue to live in their homes in Bethany Village and surrounding communities in southern Montgomery County.

A foursome from Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Kettering, (Kevin Nels, Daryl Nels, Mark Steffe and Jim Butts) won the Congregation Trophy again for posting the best score among participating churches. A foursome from Plante Moran (Dave Brinkman, Amy Whitman, Brady Dalrymple and Mark Helpinstine) posted the best overall score of the day.
