The 12th annual Hospice of Cincinnati and Fernside Summertime Classic was a huge success, raising funds to support bereavement programs for children, teens and adults. Kenwood Country Club was the venue for this year's two-day event that offered the opportunity for both golfers and non-golfers to support Fernside, an affiliate of Hospice of Cincinnati.
On Sunday, May 19, nearly 300 guests enjoyed dinner, a silent auction and a live auction led by Local 12 WKRC's Bob Herzog. The highlight of the evening featured Jason Carmack and his son Noah who shared their Fernside experience following the death of Noah's sister Peyton in 2011. Noah, a third grader at Holly Hill Elementary in Amelia, attended Fernside's Sibling Loss support group. On Monday, May 20, more than 200 golfers enjoyed lunch compliments of Gold Star Chili and HoneyBaked Ham, an afternoon scramble on Kenwood Country Club's two courses and dinner compliments of Maggiano's.
Planning for the 2014 Summertime Classic is already underway. If you would like to support next year's event, please contact Kimberly Best at 513-865-1621.
