JCC planning Sports Spectacular

The Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus will host its 29th Sports Spectacular Aug. 24 and 25.

The fundraiser officially kicks off at 9 a.m. Aug. 24, with a tennis program and tournament at Wolfe Park. The tennis package cost is $50 and includes a continental breakfast, snacks, drinks and a participant gift.

The first day also features FUNtacular!, a carnival-style family-friendly celebration, starting at noon. In addition to carnival-style food, there will be Supergames inflatables, a zipline, crafts, music, water fun and a youth basketball program.

Sports Spectacular continues the following day in New Albany at the Winding Hollow Golf and Event Center. Participants can enjoy golf, a continental breakfast, lunch on the greens, drinks, cocktails, as well as contests, prizes and souvenirs. Golf packages are $500.

Proceeds from Sports Spectacular are earmarked for youth athletic programs at the JCC and the event celebrates the agency's commitment to youth sports, family wellness and recreational opportunities for central Ohio.

Those who are unable to participate in tennis or golf, or to attend FUNtacular!, are still invited to purchase raffle tickets. Raffles are being held both days, with prizes such as gift cards available Sunday and golf clubs or headphones on Monday. Raffle tickets for Sunday's drawing at FUNtacular are $5 each or five tickets for $20. Raffle tickets for Monday's drawings are $10 each or six tickets for $50.
