Golfers teed it up at Fuller’s Fairways Saturday morning for the Catholic Social Services 15th Annual Golf Scramble.
The event was held to help raise operational funds for the organization’s local office. Catholic Social Services has been located in Zanesville since 1947. Regional Director, Dave Desender, detailed a program that was implemented in 1990, called Payee Services, which helps individuals with mental or physical disabilities manage their money.
"We do that for them, we pay their bills and make sure that they have spending money, food money, and basically protect them from people that might take advantage of them."
Desender says that every little bit of money raised allows them to continue helping the needy in our local community. This year 10 teams competed in the outing with first, second and third place teams all winning prizes.
"Well, its a scramble format. Four man teams, low score is going to win. So hopefully its a beautiful day and everyone is going to have low scores and everyone is going to be happy when they come in."
And Saturday was a gorgeous day for the outing. The round began at 8:30 followed by a lunch and awards ceremony immediately after the scramble.
