NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing is Another Fabulous Success!

NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing is Another Fabulous Success!

On June 22, NAMI of Erie County held its Sixth Annual Fabulous Golf Outing at Venango Valley Inn and Golf Course.  Despite rain showers, golfers were able to play nine holes and they helped us exceed our fundraising goal by raising over $26,000 for our free programs and services, ensuring that no family is ever turned away from the education they deserve. Thank you, Erie community, for stepping up and making a difference!

Golfers enjoyed a FABULOUS day beginning with live music by Mike Trott, microbrews courtesy of the Brewerie at Union Station, and samples from Luminary Distilling. DJ Tony B played your favorite classic rock hits while golfers were on the course.

Participants also competed for the Golden Boa Award and $3,000 in fabulous team prizes. Congratulations to Moore Research for taking home the first place Golden Boa trophy this year. Second place was The Greater Erie Area Action Committee (GECAC) and third place went to Highmark. Moore Research, GECAC, and Highmark have supported the Fabulous Golf Outing since its inception.

NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing would not be possible without our sponsors.  Some of our FABULOUS sponsors this year included: Accudyn, Forest Park Honda, GECAC, Great Lakes Metal Finishing, Harley Davidson, Highmark, The HUB, Lamar Advertising, Lilly Broadcasting – the stations of WICU 12, WSEE, the CW and MeTV, Maloney, Reed, & Scarpitti, Miller Travel, Northwest Saving Bank, PSB Industries, and UPMC Health Plan.

Proceeds benefit NAMI of Erie County’s free educational programs and services that support individuals and families living with mental health challenges.

NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing is not only a great time, but it creates an environment that starts the conversation about mental health. Mark your calendars for next year’s event on June 21, 2019!
