The John Glenn High School class of 1991 rallies behind a classmate who’s making a tragic loss positive.

Mike Bish a graduate of John Glenn and his wife lost their son, Sam, to cancer last year. In his name they two began a foundation to assist families who’s children have the disease.

"The organization is small. It’s still growing but they’ve done so much in the short amount of time they’ve been around. It’s impressive," said Event Organizer Allison Blagg.

To support the foundation the Class of ’91 is hosting a golf scramble at Wildfire Golf Course in New Concord Sunday June 26.

"Even people that aren’t golfers are planning on coming out for lunch and a silent auction to raise money for the Sam Bisch Foundation," said Blagg.

The cost to take part in the outing is $55.00 a golfer. There will also be lunch and drinks, hole in one prizes and gift bags for all golfers. Check in starts at 7:30a.m. with a tee off time on 9 a.m. Anyone interested should contact Allison Blagg at (740) 319-9038, Angie Nelson at (740) 704-0151 or Laurie McKendry at (740) 260-1988.
