Custom Home Builder Wayne Homes announces the results of the 28th annual Akron Rotary Chili Open Golf Classic.
Uniontown, OH – The 28th annual Akron Rotary Chili Open Golf Classic, sponsored by Wayne Homes, was held on Saturday, February 3 at Hale Farm and Village in Bath, OH. This year, the Akron Rotary Chili Open Golf Classic raised over $250,000 and will be sending more than 1,900 children and young adults to camp this summer.
“We are thrilled to be the title sponsor for the Chili Open and we are proud of our decades-long relationship with the Akron Rotary Foundation,” George Murphy, President and CEO of Wayne Homes, said. “The work that the Rotary Camp does in the community is one that really resonates with our employees and we look forward to many more decades supporting the Rotary Camp and the Akron Rotary Foundation.”
The Chili Open is an annual event that raises funds to send children and adults with developmental disabilities to summer camp. No child or adult is turned away because of their inability to pay and in 2017 the Akron Rotary Foundation provided over $194,000 in direct financial assistance.
Over 500 supporters, including 47 Wayne Homes employees and their families, attended the Chili Open. The day consisted of arctic golf, all-you-can-eat Whitey’s chili, silent auctions, door prizes, raffle tickets, and more.
“We are so grateful to Wayne Homes and all of our sponsors and donors who have helped make a difference in the lives of our campers through this year’s Chili Open,” Dan Reynolds, Akron Rotary Camp Executive Director of Camping Services, said. “Because of their generosity, we are able to provide meaningful opportunities to our campers and their families regardless of their ability to pay.”
