Ohio Valley Goodwill was delighted to welcome a host of long-time sponsors, friends, and celebrities to its 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Goodwill Celebrity Golf Outing on Thursday, June 17th at the beautiful Shaker Run Golf Club. Sunny skies and big smiles heralded the start of a very succesful day of golf, networking and just plain fun. Golfers were enthusiastically greeted by volunteers from Goodwill’s CARE program as they arrived for registration and lunch. 2010 Co-hosts Joe Walter and Stephanie Mitchell welcomed everyone to the 10th Anniversary Celebration and guests were entertained by a video snapshot of the past 10 years of Goodwill golf outings before hitting the links.
