17th Annual McDonalds/Galion-Crestline Chamber Golf Outing

The 17th Annual McDonald's/ Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing took place on June 27th at Valley View Golf Course. A total of 116 golfers hit the links with a shotgun start at noon.

Corporate Sponsor for the event was once again McDonald's of Galion, owned by Randi and Scott Nickell. 

Co-Sponsors for the event were Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Galion Community Hospital-Avita Health System, Rock Solid Media, Mill Creek Nursing & Rehab Center, Coopers Mill/Crossroads Candles, Longstreth Memorials, and Bowlin Real Estate LLC.  

This annual event generates operating income for the Chamber to continue its Economic Development and Business Advocacy efforts on behalf of the business community and serves as a fund raiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities.  

Various contests on the course generated a record $2,847 for Ronald McDonald House Charities and since beginning this partnership in 2003, a total of $30,001 has been raised for the charity.  

Ag Credit was this year's first place team with a 54. Team members were Randy Inscho, TJ Kruger, Jason Phelps and Mike Hauenstien.

Dostal & Kirk Insurance finished in second place with a 55. Team members included, Jeff Kirk, Mike Dostal, Dave Dostal and Jon McMahon.

The highlight of the day was a Hole In One by Jeff Kirk on #2 which earned him a 50” smart TV.

The afternoon meal, which was catered by Ralphies, consisting of pulled pork, chicken chunks, meatballs, macaroni & cheese & assorted cookies.

After dinner, announcements and awards were held at the Jefferson Township Meeting Hall across the street from Valley View Golf Course. 

Our sincere gratitude to the Jefferson Township Fire Department and the Jefferson Township Trustees for the use of their space for our event.

We again extend our thanks and appreciation to our sponsors, golfers, volunteers and those who donated goodie bag items, door prizes and raffle prizes. This event would not be possible without those who invest their time and resources to making this event a huge success.  

Mark your calendars now for next year’s outing that will be held on June 25th at Valley View Golf Course.
