“With the year we’ve just gone through our Glow-A-Fun Golf Tournament offers golfers of all skill levels the opportunity to have some crazy fun outdoors in a safe environment,” said OCO Development Coordinator Bridget Dolbear. “In addition to golf there will be a number of games and contests that golfers can participate in. There will also be prizes, food and refreshments. And, of course, for the safety of our guests, all COVID safety protocols will be followed.”

Proceeds from the Glow-A-Fun Golf Tournament will support OCO’s Opportunities for All initiative fighting poverty and empowering individuals and families to help themselves and to help each other.

“We are proud to welcome G & C Foods as the presenting sponsor the event,” added Dolbear. “G & C Foods is a steadfast supporter of OCO and we are fortunate to count them among our partners.”
