On July 13, golfers from across the state joined forces with the Ohio State Building and Construction Trade Council to raise thousands of dollars for diabetes research.
For the first time in its history, the annual OSBCTC event was used to raise money for a charitable cause.
The scramble raised $45,935 for Dollars against Diabetes Day (D.a.D.’s Day), which is an annual campaign organized by the Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO to fund diabetes research. All the money raised went to D.a.D.’s Day.
Held at NorthStar Golf Club, 120 golfers attended the scramble on a beautiful, sunny day.
The outing began with a shotgun start at 9 am and included door prizes, a raffle and banquet once the round was finished.
“I was really happy with the outcome. It was our first endeavor to assist D.a.D.’s Day and we exceeded expectations,” said Duffy.
