Who would have guessed that Findlay native Julie Cole would have made such a mark on women's golf? She had an outstanding athletic career at Findlay High School and later at Ohio University (OU) where she earned a scholarship for basketball and golf. Following her graduation from OU, Julie played on the national amateur golf circuit and in 1979, turned professional, later joining the LPGA. 

In 1988, Julie decided to collaborate with a local charity on a golf tournament and met with Karen Mallett Eubanks, the director of hospice. Eubanks connected her to Cooper Tire executive Ivan Gorr and Dr. Charlie Spragg, who became the tournament's organizing chairman. This group created the Julie Cole Charity Golf Classic as we know it and partnered with Blanchard Valley Health System. While Julie has been all around the world, she never forgot her roots and has steadfastly maintained her vision to "give back."

In the past 33 years, we have raised more than $3 million to support Bridge Hospice (a benefactor since 1989), additional health care service lines within Blanchard Valley, other not-for-profits, and provided youth educational support through scholarships awarded from the Julie Cole Fund for Junior Golfers. None of this could be possible without the continuous support of our sponsors.

Sponsors are Key to the Success of the Julie Cole Charity Classic

Our sponsors are indeed a very special part of the Julie Cole event and are highlighted throughout the event day of play. Each year, their very generous support allows the Julie Cole Charity Classic event to continue to provide an outstanding experience for players, volunteers and spectators alike.
