Local chambers join forces for scholarship funds
The West Shore and Fairview Park chambers of commerce will host their Scholarship Golf Outing on Monday, Aug. 7. This annual event supports a $1,500 scholarship given out each year to a deserving senior at Westlake High, Bay High and Fairview High School. Funds are raised through sponsorships, foursomes and raffles for a variety of prizes. This year's outing will once again be held at Avon Oaks Country Club in Avon with an 11:00 a.m. shotgun start.
BMW Westlake sponsors the hole-in-one contest so a lucky golfer could drive off with a new BMW that is displayed on the course all day. Local businesses have been very generous in their support of this event with donations of everything from gift certificates and sports tickets to a big screen TV and round-trip airline tickets. This event has enabled the chambers to give away over $100,000 in scholarships over the last 25 years.
Registration is $150 per golfer and includes a round of golf, cart, breakfast, lunch, dinner and beverages. If you are interested in sponsoring a hole or want to join in the fun of the day, contact the chamber office at 440-777-3368 or register online at westshorechamber.org.
