Forty-four golfers took part in a foursome golf scramble at Valleywood Golf Course on Saturday, October 2 as part of the annual EP Legacy Cup to raise funds to support community charities that focus on children and education.
This was the fourth year for the event and this was the second year under the EP name – EP for Empowering People. “We changed the name because we wanted to branch out to a broader audience,” said Rev. Jerry Boose, pastor of Second Baptist Church and the event’s chief organizer.
After the scramble, the golfers relaxed in the club’s dining room for a buffet lunch and to receive the news of prizes. The foursome which finished with the lowest score shared gifts and winnings of $500.
The three main charities benefiting from the funds this year were: Connecting Kids to Meals, a local nonprofit that provides over 500,000 healthy meals to at-risk kids annually; Boys and Girls Clubs of Toledo and the J.L. Boose Scholarship Fund which provides financial awards to students who are pursuing post-high school education.
This year’s primary sponsors were: Lucas Metropolitan Housing, Designetics, Metroparks of Toledo, Area Office on Aging, Paramount and SG.
