YARBCC Charitable Fund Partners with Avalon Golf & Country Club to Raise Monies for Local Disabled and Disadvantaged Veterans as well as Emergency Needs of Local Military

Vienna, OH, May 24, 2016 – The Youngstown Air Reserve Base Community Council’s YARBCC Charitable Fund and Avalon Golf & Country Club announces that the 3rd Annual Freedom Warrior Golf Outing will take place on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at all three of the Avalon Golf & Country Club golf courses including Avalon Lakes, Squaw Creek and Avalon at Buhl. This TriAvalon Extravaganza is a four person scramble that begins at 10:00 AM and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner as well as an adult only evening gala event at Squaw Creek. Jim Tressel is the 2016 Honorary Chairman. Challenge coins will be provided to all golf participants in his honor.

Ron Klingle, owner of Avalon Golf & Country Club has generously donated all three courses and his staff to help with this event.  This means that registration fees will go directly to provide assistance to the service men and women from our local community who have paid dearly for our freedoms. All proceeds will be used to help disabled and disadvantaged veterans from the Mahoning and Shenango Valleys with both basic and special needs as well as the emergency needs of our local military members. The YARBCC Charitable Fund is a 501 C (3), so donations are tax deductible.  As a fully volunteer organization more than 99% of all monies donated are distributed to those in need. All monies stay local as the organization is not affiliated with any national non-profit.

Registration is $250 per golfer or $1000 for a team with the course designation based on a first come first serve.  Golfing also includes the evening event ticket. Tickets for the evening event only are $75. 

The evening gala will include heavy hors d’oeuvres, open bar, live music by Rudy and The Professionals, a silent auction and raffles, ending with a huge fireworks display provided by Phantom Fireworks and Youngstown Phantoms. The gala is open to the public so non-golfers are welcome. The evening event is casual attire.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. More information and registration and donation forms can be found at Donations can also be made online.

Team signups, tickets, sponsorships, or monetary donations can be mailed to YARBCC Charitable Fund c/o Jerry Lyda P.O. Box 75 North Lima, OH 44452.
