Club in Medina raised over $29,000 and over 450 donated items for the food pantry in the St. Augustine Hunger Center on W. 14th in the Tremont neighborhood. This brings the three year total to over $59,135.

This year’s golf outing was sponsored by three title sponsors: Lakeside Financial Partners, AXA Advisors and Catholic Charities Corporation.

The golf outing was started in 2016 to offer an enjoyable day of golf that would also benefit some of Cleveland’s most needy. Participants at the golf outing enjoyed golfing, lunch, dinner, raffles and prizes.

“I am so humbled by the generosity of our communities to help support the hunger center especially in the summer months when donations of food and money are typically down,” said Sister Corita Ambro, director of St. Augustine’s Hunger Center. “Thank you to all that donated and supported this fundraiser.”

The hunger center provides more than 250,000 meals a year throughout seven counties in northeast Ohio. All the proceeds from the golf outing go directly to St. Augustine’s Hunger Center. For those interested in supporting the St. Augustine Hunger Center that are unable to attend the golf outing, donations can be made at: www.staugustine-west14.org/contactus.php
