BWEF seeking golf foursomes for annual Golf Extravaganza
By LENNY C. LEPOLA

Each year in early August, members of the Big Walnut Education Foundation board of directors hold a golf outing to raise scholarship funds to distribute to Big Walnut area graduating seniors and former Big Walnut students already enrolled in college. That golf outing is, in reality, two separate events.
The annual golf outing fundraiser features golf and dinner. The second fundraiser is the foundation’s Annual Golf Extravaganza; a raffle for threesomes and foursomes at top central Ohio golf courses.
The Golf Extravaganza raffle takes place during the golf outing dinner, but ticket holders do not need to be present to win. A limited number of raffle tickets are sold, so ticket holders have a good chance of winning a date on select golf courses they might not normally experience.
This year’s Annual Big Walnut Education Foundation Golf Outing and Golf Extravaganza Drawing are scheduled for Monday, August 6, at Rattlesnake Ridge Golf Club, 1 Rattlesnake Drive, Sunbury.
The Golf Outing will begin 1 p.m. with a four-person shotgun start format. The cost is $500 per foursome, lunch and dinner included.
A volunteer Board of Trustees governs the foundation; and every dollar earned during the golf outing and during other education foundation fundraising efforts is applied to the foundation’s scholarships; there are no administrative costs involved.
For additional information about signing up a foursome or purchasing Golf Extravaganza Raffle tickets contact Martin Forman, Golf Chairman, at 740–965-1212.
