The morning of Thursday, June 6th marked the official occasion of the 2019 Goodwill Celebrity Golf Outing which got off to a fabulous start. Despite the threat of storms in the area, the sun came out and almost 200 sponsors, players, volunteers and celebrities gathered for this year’s event which as always, got off to a wonderful beginning. Held at the beautiful Glenview Golf Club, Goodwill Public Information Officer, Michael Flannery, joined with Co-Chair Stephanie Mitchell to get the exciting day started. Honorary Chair Joe Walter will be joining the group later in the day. The Celebrity Golf Outing is the single fund-raising special event which the organization hosts each year and Goodwill is very grateful for the long-time support of its partners and friends.
Michael Flannery welcomed the group by showing off his comedic skills and also took a moment to recognize the 75th anniversary of D Day and all of the veterans in attendance. Co-Chair Stephanie Mitchell joined Flannery in welcoming everyone to the outing and said “Thank you for coming. I love being the Co-Chair of the Goodwill Golf Outing!” Stephanie will also be a celebrity guest on Facebook Live at 1 pm with Host, Alisha Tyler. Last year’s broadcast featuring the two is still the most viewed Facebook Live video broadcast by the organization.
With that, all 200 golfers took off in their carts listening to cheers from the enthusiastic CARE (Center for Advocacy, Recreation and Education) ambassadors. Ohio Valley Goodwill is also pleased to welcome back Hole-in-One volunteers from Hamilton County DD Services as well as 2019 Special Friend Sponsor, Butler DD.
For the second time this year, Goodwill will be broadcasting Facebook Live, “Thursdays at One” at the site of the golf outing featuring Host Alisha Tyler. Watch Facebook Live today at 1 pm to check out Alisha’s very special surprise guest. Tune in for today’s broadcast at http://www.facebook.com/cincigoodwill
