Attend Third Annual Charity Golf Outing Benefiting Zach Doherty Memorial Scholarship Fund
Swing a golf club, sponsor a golf hole, or enjoy dinner only during a third annual charity golf outing in memory of 2014 Lake High School graduate Zachary Doherty set for Saturday, July 29, 2017 at Canton’s Tam O’Shanter golf course. A silent auction of gift baskets, and dinner will also be provided as part of the event, along with door prizes, a raffle, and 50/50 drawing.
One special item to be included during the silent auction will be one flight lesson to learn to fly an airplane.
The cost per golfer to enter is $75. Three hole sponsorships (each costing $100), are also still available as the date approaches. Golfer registration begins at noon, followed by a shotgun start at 1 p.m. During the day $400 cash prizes will be awarded for team champions; golf game challenges include closest to the pin, longest drive, mulligans, skins game, and a four-person scramble.
Non golfers are also invited to attend and enjoy dinner only, at a cost of $20 per person, as well as bid on silent auction items, buy a raffle ticket, etc. The buffet meal, beginning at 6 p.m., will include baked chicken, sausage and peppers, redskin potatoes, rigatoni, salad, and a roll. The deadline to register for the golf event or dinner only is Tuesday, July 25, 2017. Download an event flyer with registration info at
One hundred percent of the event’s proceeds after expenses will go to the Zachary Doherty Memorial Scholarship Fund, a 501(c)3, so it can award student scholarships, including two for outstanding Lake band members, and one for an outstanding Lake Advanced Placement student. These were programs and classes that Zachary, who graduated summa cum laude, especially enjoyed while attending Lake High School. All donations to the Memorial Scholarship Fund are tax deductible.
Last year’s charity golf outing raised $8,000. “We hope to exceed last year’s total. There are lots of things students need today,” said Pamela Doherty, Zach’s mother. “This is a family friendly event – we hope to see kids there.”
Zachary, who planned to attend the University of Akron to study Corrosion Engineering, passed away tragically in August, 2014, after a hiking accident in southern Ohio.
Tam O’Shanter Golf Course is located at 5055 Hills& Dales Road N.W. in Canton. For more event info, contact Mrs. Doherty via her e-mail at
