Goodwill Celebrity Golf Outing Tees Off!

Great Start to the Day!

This year’s Goodwill Celebrity Golf Outing welcomed almost 200 players and celebrities on a beautiful day at the Glenview Golf Club. Celebrity Host, Joe Walter along with Co-Chair Stephanie Mitchell, greeted all of the players, celebrities, volunteers and friends to the 2023 event. Players and celebrities were enthusiastically greeted by volunteers from the organization’s Center for Advocacy, Recreation and Education (CARE) program. The morning’s festivities kicked off with remarks from new Goodwill President and CEO, Mark Hiemstra along with Celebrity Host Joe Walter and Co-Chair Stephanie Mitchell. “We are excited to welcome everyone to the 2023 Goodwill Celebrity Golf Outing and are grateful to all of our sponsors and friends for their wonderful support of this annual event,” said Mark Hiemstra, President and CEO.

Thank You to our 2023 Sponsors!

The 2023 Goodwill Golf Outing Title Sponsor is Strategic Benefits and for the second year, First Financial Bank is the Major Corporate Sponsor. This year’s event welcomed two new Lunch sponsors, Bryant Dealer and Carrier Dealer and Lother’s Catering returned along with VonLehman as the Dinner sponsors. The annual Golf Outing is not only the single fundraiser held by the organization each year but also, a friend-raising event. Hosts, players, sponsors and everyone involved enjoy the opportunity to get together each year and celebrate the organization’s 100+ year mission of service in the Greater Cincinnati community.

Awesome Volunteers!

As in previous years, Goodwill was delighted to welcome back enthusiastic volunteers from long-time partner organization, Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services (HCDDS). HCDDS team members for many years have volunteered to help out on the Hole-in-One’s during the outing. The organization’s Volunteer Service Guild also helps out with registration and welcoming players and guests to the annual event.

In addition to the wonderful celebrity guests who participate in the Goodwill outing every year, another much looked forward to feature is the Community Ambassadors from the organization’s Center for Advocacy, Recreation and Education (CARE) program. Every year, they enthusiastically greet all of the players, cheer them on when they head out to the links and even, help them putt in at the end of the day. Our most sincere gratitude to the CARE team for their fun participation.
