The Red Door Tavern's annual golf outing and dinner June 10 will benefit the Tri-Village Mentor League.

The golf outing will begin at 1:30 p.m. with a shotgun start at the Hickory Hills Golf Club, 3344 Georgesville-Wrightsville Road in Grove City.

A prime rib dinner will follow at 7 p.m. at the tavern, 1736 W. Fifth Ave.

Last year, the Red Door donated a portion of the proceeds from its golf outing and dinner to the mentor league, said Ron Cameron, chairman of this year's event.

The tavern and the mentor league have followed up on that initial effort with a partnership for this year's golf outing, Cameron said.

The league operates a weekly school-based mentoring program in Grandview and Upper Arlington.

High school volunteers are matched with younger students enrolled in after-school childcare programs.

Seventy-seven high school mentors and 66 elementary school students participated in the program during the 2011-12 school year.

"It's a wonderful program that benefits both the high school and elementary students," Cameron said. "My son, who's now in college, participated as a mentor and he got so much out of it."

Hickory Hills, the last design completed by noted Ohio golf course architect Jack Kidwell, is one of the best private courses in the area, he said.

"When you combine a round of golf at such a prestigious course and a delicious prime rib dinner, it's just a great day for a great cause," Cameron said.

The cost of the event is $110 for golf and dinner and $50 for dinner only. Registration is available at the website or in person at the Red Door. The registration deadline is Monday, June 4.

The mentor league recently awarded the John Miller College Scholarship to Grandview Heights High School graduating seniors Rebekah Keller, Casey Martina and Jacob Smith.

The $500 scholarship was created in honor of John Miller, a founding board member of the mentor league who died in 2005.

The three scholarship winners were recognized for their commitment to the school-based mentoring program at Stevenson Elementary School.

The scholarship is supported by the Beverly A. Paul Memorial Scholarship Fund of Members First Credit Union and the Tri-Village and Upper Arlington rotary clubs.
