Heartland Continues to Give Back - Sold Out Golf Classic

 Sunday, September 16, 2012

At the close of the 15th Annual Charity Golf Classic, Heartland Bank continues to be proud of the role we are playing throughout central Ohio and the Licking and Franklin County Communities. With this event, Heartland Bank’s charitable donations to our local market areas exceeds $290,000!

With the Help of Sponsors, Players and Community Leaders Donations Were Given to Six Local Organizations

This year’s golf event proceeds help to further the mission of American’s Promise and local organizations specifically geared toward central Ohio youth. Heartland is dedicated to providing a top rated Golf Classic for invited guests and this year’s Heartland Charity Golf Classic 18-hole event played at the New Albany Country Club was no exception.

“One of Heartland Bank’s deeply rooted shared values is its commitment to the enrichment of local communities through our involvement,” stated G. Scott McComb, Chairman, President and CEO. “We pride ourselves on being a true community bank - service to the local community is a Heartland tradition.”

It takes a commitment to exceed $290,000 for local charities. With the help of our Sponsors, Players, and Community Leaders, we were able to choose six organizations this year. The recipients chosen this year were:

  • Licking County Foundations for YES Clubhouse (Youth Engaged in Service)
  • Grove City Kids Association
  • Flying Horse Farms
  • Special Olympics Ohio
  • Ohio 4-H Celebration of Youth
  • Masonic Learning Centers for Children with Dyslexia 

Benefitting Organizations

Licking County Foundation for YES Club (Youth Engaged in Service)
The YES program is a service-learning project funded by a grant from the Ohio Department of Education. Due to the overwhelming number of participants and need for a safe haven for after school hours, YES moved to downtown Newark. The clubhouse currently serves 35-40 youths, age 11-18 years of age, on a daily basis. Staff and adult volunteers provide mentoring, tutoring, life-skills and anger management classes, with a daily meal.

Grove City Kids Association
Grove City Kids Association (GCKA) is a non-profit charitable organization for youth sports. Their mission is to offer the best youth athletic experience possible by providing an environment dedicated to maximizing each participant's potential. The group has grown continuously and currently provides sports to over 3,000 children in Grove City and the Southwestern School District in youth cheerleading, football, soccer and softball.

Flying Horse Farms
Flying Horse Farms benefits from the 2nd Annual Rendezvous. They are a member of the Serious Fun Children’s Network. Flying Horse Farms provides magical, transformative camp experiences for children with serious illnesses. Located on 200 acres just outside of Mt. Gilead, Ohio, they host hundreds of children and families each year – free of charge.

Special Olympics Ohio
Special Olympics is the world’s largest program of athletic training and competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Since its inception in 1968, the program has grown to more than 1,000,000 athletes and 500,000 volunteers in more than 140 countries around the globe. This spirit is reflected in the Special Olympics oath: “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

Ohio 4-H Celebration of YouthOhio 4-H Youth Development uniquely qualifies young people to step up to the challenges of our changing society. Program areas that benefit youth include science and technology, health and safety, animal and agricultural areas, family and consumer sciences, personal development, natural resources, global understanding, and more.

Masonic Learning Centers for Children with Dyslexia

The Center offers free one-on-one tutoring to children with Dyslexia as well as free training for individuals who are interested in becoming a tutor for these children. The positive impact of early intervention in the lives of these children and their families is enormous.
