West Shore Chamber enjoys perfect day for golf outing
Aug. 8 turned out to be a picture perfect day for golf for the members of the West Shore and Fairview Park chambers of commerce. This year's event, benefiting the scholarship funds for the Westlake, Bay Village and Fairview Park school districts, was held at the Avon Oaks Country Club.
Since 1979, the West Shore Chamber has been supporting the school district education fund through their golf outings. Five years ago they joined forces with the Fairview Park Chamber to hold a joint annual event to fund a college scholarship for three students. The school districts served by the chambers – Westlake, Bay Village and Fairview Park – each receive a donation to their education fund in order to offer scholarships. Tens of thousands of dollars have been donated over the last 35 years.
Westlake Mayor Dennis Clough participated in this year’s sold out event and joined others from local businesses like Crocker Park, Brookdale Westlake Village, Wells Fargo and Equity Trust. Massage Envy raised additional money for the scholarship fund through a contest to win free massages. Panera Bread sponsored breakfast, BW3 in Westgate Mall sponsored the box lunch and Padgett Business Systems covered a fantastic barbecue dinner.
Bay Shore Insurance took on the job of Beer Hole Sponsor and owners Judie Cunningham and Nancy Kelly spent the day meeting all of the golfers while working the hole themselves. Dave & Buster's served as witnesses on the Hole in One contest and offered a prize wheel opportunity to the waiting golfers.
The winning foursome was headed up by Spooner Inc.'s Andy Lembach and his partners Brady Aldinger, Steve Pappadakes and Alexander Hahn.
