On June 3, more than 130 golfers participated in the sixth annual Ohio Masonic Home Foundation Golf Classic at Wedgewood Golf & Country Club in Powell, Ohio. Hosted by US Bank and the Ohio Masonic Home Foundation, the golf outing raised $120,000 to enhance services and programs to residents, family members and caregivers battling Alzheimer’s, dementia and other brain related diseases at our campuses in Springfield, Medina and Waterville.
As there is no cure for Alzehimer’s and dementia, individuals and their caregivers desperately need support in managing the progression of this disease. Thus, golfers were given the opportunity to participate in a virtual reality demonstration of what it is like to walk in the shoes of an individual with dementia. “The Ohio Masonic Home prides itself on high quality care at all levels. We are blessed to be in a position to provide innovative technology, training and programming that enhances the lifestyles of our residents,” said Scott Buchanan.
We are very touched by the generosity displayed for this event and are very thankful for the support we have received. We wish to thank all sponsors, especially our naming sponsor – US Bank; and presenting sponsors – Dinsmore & Shohl, Manning & Napier, and SEI.
