LOVELAND, OH (June 27, 2022) – The 17th Annual Paxton’s Grill Golf Outing  set another record raising $95,000 for CancerFree Kids (CFK) surpassing the $85,000 raised just one year ago. 

In the space fo three days last week (June 20-23) Paxton’s Grill and CancerFree Kids announced the winning teams from the three-day golf outing along with the record-setting $95K total raised for CFK. In an email message and via social media outlets Monday, June 20, the three winning foursomes were announced.

Previously, all rounds were played at Hickory Woods Golf Course on Saturday, with the addition the last couple years of a Friday round. It all adds up to three days of golf and three winning teams. Not to mention contest winners as well.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

“Together, we raised $95,000 for CancerFree KIDS at our 17th annual Paxton’s Golf Outing. Yes, it was another record-setting year for our outing.

Not one dollar could have been raised without a host of volunteers, two excellent local golf clubs, and most importantly all of you – our generous and thoughtful sponsors, donors, and of course all of our wonderful (and talented?) golfers!

Be on the lookout for an announcement about the 18th annual outing dates in 2023! Next year, let’s work together to top the $100,000 mark!” – Paxton’s Grill
