Storm Fails to Dampen Spirits at White’s Benefit 100-Hole Golf Marathon

“Teeing Up for Teens” raises $12,325 for youth and family services

Though the skies opened during White’s Residential & Family Services’ 100-hole marathon at the Etna Acres Golf Course, the golfers prevailed with great success. Despite lightning, frequent downpours and weather-related delays, four brave competitors completed the White’s Wabash Benefit 100-Hole Marathon on July 10. Congratulations to Brandon Leist, Byron Brunn, Jason Smith and Kyle Hostetler for completing the entire course!

As of Friday, July 14, the event raised $12,325 for White’s Residential & Family Services from individuals and corporate sponsors.

Despite stormy conditions, the golfers stayed for the awards ceremony. Leist received the best player award and Smith won awards for longest drive and closest to the pin.

The players enjoyed the challenges of the course and were proud of their efforts to benefit White’s. “The weather really tried to stop us from playing the 100 holes, but we stuck through it and it was worth it!” Byron Brunn said.

White’s extended special thanks to its sponsors: Enterprise Fleet Management – Indy, Eads & Son Bulldozing, INGUARD, Itrasect, Knights Inn, Wabash Electric, Hylant Group – Ft Wayne, and Shepherd’s Family Auto Group – Kendallville, North Manchester and Rochester.

White’s proclaimed the Wabash Benefit 100 Hole Marathon a wonderful success that brought people together. Director of Development Dana Brady is already looking forward to next year’s event: “With the success of this year’s event, even with the weather trouble, I am extremely excited for what next year has in store. I think next year we will raise even more money to benefit White’s programs and services!”
