The GOH golf outing started as a simple day of fun for GOH employees and associates in 1992. The following year, fundraising was added to benefit the Ronald McDonald House, as the then controller’s son had numerous health problems and the outing raised about $8,000 . The golf committee became organized over the years with hole/tee sponsors being added, which generates the most money for the selected beneficiaries. In 2001, the golf committee added a second flight because we had been forced to turn golfers away due to the growing interest by both sponsors and golfers. Through the 2016 outing, we have raised over $1,00,000 for numerous charities and this year we will exceed over a million dollars donated.
In this our 26th year, the proceeds of our Tournament will benefit Ronald McDonald House in Danville, Contre Volunteers in Medicine, State College, Dubois area YMCA, Huntingdon Regional Fire & Rescue, Hearts for the Homeless, State College, The Nicholas Wolff Doundation, DBA Camp Victory and The Children’s House/Children’s Advocacy Center, Towanda, PA .
Many of the sponsorships come from GOH vendors and customers, but the more sponsorships the beneficiaries brings to the outing, the greater the financial benefit to that agency. All monies, less expenses for the day, go directly to the agencies. On course skills games, raffle items, scoring incentives, and other donations also help in the total money raised. The “simple day of fun”has grown to a tournament that uses over a hundred volunteers, has hundreds of golfers all day, and gives away tens of thousands of dollars each year to help those agencies in our working areas that are making a difference in other people’s lives. Glenn O Hawbaker, Inc is proud of its employees who tee off this tournament to help those in their communities who can use a little help in serving others. Thank you for your support in our effort to make a difference.
