Seventy-two golfers enjoyed a beautiful day at Youth Challenge's ninth annual Scott & Julie Mawaka Charitable Foundation Golf Outing on Sept. 24 at the Shaker Heights Country Club. 

Major sponsorships were provided by Fleet Response, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Fran and Ron Mawaka. Additional monetary and in-kind donations were made by local and national organizations, friends, and families.

 “The continuous generosity of Scott and Julie Mawaka and the Mawaka Foundation means so much to Youth Challenge,” says John Petersen, YC trustee and co-chair of the golf outing, “especially now, as we are growing our presence with additional East Side programs.”

Youth Challenge is a non-profit corporation in Westlake that brings together children with physical disabilities and youth volunteers for year-round adapted sports and recreational activities.
