Golf outing scheduled

Registration is underway for the 4th Annual Play Fore Melissa's House Golf & Game Outing, scheduled for Friday, Sept. 20, at the Winding Hollow Golf Club in New Albany.

In addition to lunch and a cocktail party, participants may choose to spend the afternoon golfing or gaming to support Melissa's House, a Columbus based nonprofit organization offering permanent residential housing and treatment for adults living with mental illness.

Registration and lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m., followed by 18 holes of golf or a choice of mahjong, bridge or canasta for gamers. Both will end with a celebratory cocktail party at 6 p.m. A prize drawing and silent auction are also planned.

All funds raised at the event will go directly to the renovation and operating costs of Melissa's House, located at 100 Jefferson Ave. in Columbus.

Tickets are $250 for golf and $100 for games, both including lunch and the cocktail party. Raffle tickets are $50 and you need not be present to win.
