MANSFIELD, OH - On Friday, Big Brothers Big Sisters held their 19th annual Golf for Kids' Sake event at the Oak Tree Golf Club.

This event was designed to raise money and awareness for kids in the program. The program pairs up kids in need with a mentor to help them grow and strengthen the community as a whole.

This event had a turnout of approximately 116 golfing participants as well as numerous volunteers. Raffle tickets were also available to purchase for the chance to win prizes that were donated by businesses.

The proceeds also benefitted the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
