CARSTAR golf outing raises $14,000 for charity

Sept. 15, 2014
The CARSTAR Cincinnati Business Group hosted its 12th annual golf outing on Aug. 25, raising more than $14,000 for the Fisher House Foundation.
The CARSTAR Cincinnati Business Group hosted its 12th annual Golf Outing at TPC River’s Bend on Monday, August 25th, with the proceeds benefiting the Fisher House Foundation.

The event, which raised over $14,000, honored the sacrifice of our military men and women.  The outing opened in true American style, with skydivers delivering the American flag, a B-25 flyover, the playing of Taps to honor fallen soldiers, and a performance of the National Anthem.

SFC (retired) Michael Schlitz, a double amputee who suffered burns over 85% of his body while fighting in Iraq, was in attendance.  Schlitz took part in the opening ceremonies, and gave a speech at the awards dinner, where this year’s contribution was made to the Fisher House Foundation.
