WELLSBURG — A golf race hosted by the Wellsburg Lions Club was a huge success, raising nearly $4,000 for community projects supported by the club, including vision screenings offered at local schools.
Held Aug. 6 at the Highland Springs Golf Course, the event drew 17 four-member teams, including one from Trinity Health System that won the event, said Wellsburg Lion Joe Mullenbach, who co-chaired it with Cody Rice and Tom Zurbuch.
Trinity Health System was the primary sponsor of the rush, which was backed by 35 area businesses.
Lyle’s Auto, Reasner Funeral Home and Mullenbach Funeral Home have partnered to sponsor the hole-in-one award.
In its second year, the event included a steak dinner. The Wellsburg Lions look forward to hosting it again next year.
