AKRON, Ohio - The 28th Annual Ronald McDonald Charity Golf Classic on Monday raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Ronald McDonald House of Akron.
The Classic held at the Brookside Country Club in Canton, Ohio, raised $36,000 that will support operating costs at the Ronald McDonald House.
Last year, almost 13,000 people stayed at the Ronald McDonald House, which provides temporary inexpensive housing and food for parents of children at the Akron Children’s Hospital, located a block away from the RMH.
Over the past 27 years, the Classic has raised more than $685,000 for the RMH, also known as the “House That Love Built.”
The Junior Women’s Civic Club of Akron presented the Classic, which included two rounds of golf, a putting contest, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction.
The JWC will receive a portion of the proceeds.
