NWOGCSA Donates to OTRT
Thursday, August 21, 2014
A special thank you to the Northwest Ohio GCSA (NWOGCSA) for donating their proceeds from the Environmental Institute for Golf (EIFG) Rounds 4 Research program to the Ohio Turfgrass Research Trust (OTRT).
Rounds 4 Research is a national program stewarded by the GCSAA's charitable organization, EIFG. Chapters encourage their members to donate rounds of golf to the auction and a portion of the revenue generated is donated back to the chapter.
NWOGCSA chose to contribute their share of the proceeds to OTRT, the philanthropic organization of the Ohio Turfgrass Foundation. OTRT's mission is to support turfgrass research and education in Ohio in perpetuity. Upon reaching our investment goal of $500,000, the interest generated from the OTRT fund would be utilized to support student scholarships and research projects in the state of Ohio annually.
Thank you to the board and members of the Northwest Ohio GCSA chapter for your support of research and education in the state of Ohio.
