Julie Cole, a former LPGA golf professional, established this tournament in 1989 to raise funds for hospice. For 35 consecutive years, she has returned to her hometown of Findlay, Ohio, raising over $3 million for local beneficiaries.

This year’s event is projected to raise more than $200,000 for the beneficiaries. If you are interested in donating to community healthcare projects, please call 419.423.5457.
