August 1, 2019 – Valley City, Ohio: The IUPAT DC6 PATCH Foundation Golf Outing raised $25,000 for various PATCH Children charities at their golf outing held at Coppertop Golf Course in Valley City Ohio. It was the 14th consecutive year for the event.  A large crowd turned out and enjoyed the four-person scramble format which also featured several special events including longest drive, closest to the pin, skins game, and a poker game. Raffle baskets, a 50/50 raffle, combined with a delicious steak dinner and good times with friends made the event an overwhelming success.

Founding in 2001, the members of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades created the PATCH (Painters & Allied Trades for Children’s Hope) Foundation to support organizations that provide educational and medical services to our youth, as well as support local sports programs. PATCH Foundation support in 2019 has included the “Littlest Heroes, the New Castle YMCA, and Golden String, Inc.

“Every penny that is raised goes to children’s charities throughout the council,” said Jim Sherwood, Business Manager Secretary/Treasurer for DC6. “We are proud to have raised over $200,000 for the PATCH Foundation over the past 14 years.”

The first-place winners of the golf outing were Ed Thomas, Bill Phillips, Mike Kreis, and Mark Isom from Bakers Local 19. Taking second place was Frank Ozanski, Jim Dyer, Todd Cutcher, and Karl Shaner from Clear Images. Tim Halas, Glazier Representative of Local 847, was the winner of the putting contest.

Thank you to our sponsors, and to everyone who came out and make the event a success!

Their prevention services reach more than 30,000 people annually, which supports their vision to build a community free of drug and alcohol abuse as well as the disease of addiction. The Refuge Ministry Recovery Center in Columbus offers free drug rehab services. They have four locations around central Ohio that serve 75+ men and women. They have heled more than 5,000 men and women recover from addiction.
