SGA sponsors 18th annual Fenwick Open Charity Golf Outing on Saturday, Sept. 29

Event takes place at Cincinnati's Pebble Creek Golf Course; benefits Cincinnati's ProKids | September 17, 2007

More than 200 members of the Xavier community are expected to attend the 18th annual Fenwick Open Charity Golf Outing sponsored by the student government association. Registration is still open for the event, which takes place Saturday, Sept. 29, at Cincinnati's Pebble Creek Golf Course. All proceeds benefit Cincinnati’s ProKids.

The outing begins with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. Lunch from Subway and dinner from Outback Steakhouse are provided, as well as chances to buy raffle tickets, with prizes ranging from gift certificates for the Xavier bookstore to golf memorabilia.

All students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to attend, as well as all other interested members of the Cincinnati community. Alumni, faculty and staff pay $275 per foursome, or $75 for a single, while students receive a discounted rate of $120 per foursome, or $30 for a single.

Last year’s Fenwick Open collected $5,500 for the ALS Association, and SGA administrative vice president and Fenwick chair Kailin Borton is optimistic about this year's success. “The student government association hopes to give another significant donation to this year's charity, Cincinnati's ProKids," she says. "We also want to encourage more education about the foster care system and this wonderful organization.”

The golf outing is the largest student-run charity event at Xavier and is named in honor of Cincinnati’s first Archbishop and founding father of the University, Edward Dominic Fenwick, S.J.
