Fifty-six golfers enjoyed blue skies on Sept. 16 at the Eighth annual Ohio Animal Health Foundation Fore Animals Classic, helping to raise more than $7,000 for important animal health projects. The event helps fund a variety of OAHF grants that advance animal health and enrichment research and fund educational programs and equipment, as well as support a number of local animal care projects.
Participants competed for $1,500 in prizes and tickets to an upcoming OSU football game.
Taking first prize was the team of Ed Kimball, Tad Griffin, JK Guarasci, and Brett Downing.
Individual contest winners were Ryan Ballard, Michelle Thompson, Brett Downing, Matt Barker and Steve Marshall.
