Junior Golf Classic Slated for July 18 at The Ohio State University Golf Club

July 12, 2011

The 19th Annual Junior Golf Classic, presented by the Women’s Board of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, is set for Monday, July 18, 2011 at The Ohio State University Golf Club, Gray Course, and is open and free to spectators. Event proceeds benefit Nationwide Children’s.

“Well Kids Helping Sick Kids” is the motto for this year’s Junior Golf Classic, which is held in conjunction with the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational. The junior golf tournament provides a great opportunity for youths ages 6-18 to play golf and at the same time as giving back to their community.

Registration is closed as the field of 140 junior golfers is full. However, the public may still participate in the Tag-A-Bag program. In this campaign, each junior golfer is presented with a personalized bag tag courtesy of a donor to the program. Each contributor will be recognized and the donation is tax deductible. To make a contribution to the Tag-A-Bag program, visit www.NationwideChildrens.org/JuniorGolf.
