PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH – Eighty-four area residents recently enjoyed a day of golf and entertainment in support of Honor Flight Northwest Ohio as Owens Community College’s Leadership Academy group Team Commodores held its inaugural golf classic. The 21-team event netted over $5,000 to benefit the Honor Flight Northwest Ohio initiative.

“Owens Community College is proud to host a community-wide event in which the proceeds benefit such a worthy cause as Honor Flight Northwest Ohio,” said Barb Seguine, Owens Chair of Occupational Therapy Assistant and Event Co-Coordinator. “The golf outing was a huge success and would not have been possible without the overwhelming support of the surrounding communities. Their generous contributions will go a long way in sending even more veterans of Northwest Ohio to Washington D.C. to see the memorials built and dedicated in their honor.”

The championship team of the four-person scramble included Jason Reier, Laura Reier, Kevin Swartzell and Ryan Pickerel.

Founded in 2007, Honor Flight Northwest Ohio has safely flown over 460 veterans to Washington D.C.
