The BBQ will be held at the Lake County Historical Society again this year. Party starts at 3:00 with BBQ being served around 5:00 or 6:00. The address is 415 Riverside Drive, Painesville TWP, 44077. For those not familiar with the area it is just two drives north of Riverside High School. It is a private property on over eight acres with plenty of parking and room to set up tents. The cost of the BBQ will again be $30/person the day of or $25/person if paid by July 1st. This is an all-inclusive event so come hungry and thirsty. We are glad to have booked Dan “Woody” Dailey and The Hardcore Troubadours for our afternoon entertainment again and are working on the headlining band and hope to have one booked soon. As always, we will have a Chinese raffle with many great prizes, and we will again be doing a 50/50 raffle the day of the event with the winner announced around 9. Included in the costs of the BBQ and golf will be donation’s to multiple local charities in memory of Kenny. Everybody is welcome to pitch a tent and encouraged to do so. Please don’t drink and drive! This will be an adult only event so try to book a babysitter soon. If anybody would like to donate their time, we can use some help on a variety of tasks so please email Dan Staebler if you’re available.
Jennifer Geisel will be the primary recipient of the money raised this year. Jen has been a mainstay at Kenny Benny since the beginning. Last year Jen was diagnosed with advanced stage laryngeal cancer and has been undergoing intensive radiation and chemotherapy. She has been out of work since December and as you can imagine has been accumulating many medical bills. Like we did for our friend Jason White who battled cancer last year, we have offered to help her with these bills as much as we can and she has humbly accepted. So for those of you that know Jen, please stop by and help contribute to her cause. We are glad to be able to help Jen and her family during this difficult time and would like to wish her a speedy recovery.
The golf outing will be held at Powder Horn Country Club in Madison this year. This is obviously a new course for us so if you haven’t been there before make sure you plan ahead to assure you arrive by the 8:00 am check-in time. Shotgun start this year will be 9:00 am sharp. All groups from last year will have first shot at a spot this year. In order to be guaranteed your groups spot, payment for your foursome must be paid by June 21st. If your group is not paid by then, we will accept new groups on a first pay first serve basis. Payment must be paid in full in the amount of $380. Partial payments will not be accepted. Payments if not given to us in person can be mailed and payable to The Ken Mcneill Memorial Fund, 570 Beechwood Ln, Painesville, OH 44077. The golf dinner this year will be held at the golf course. Steak dinner and beverages are included in the total cost. Please have the captain of your team contact Dan Staebler or Jay White via email if have any questions. Also please let us know if you know for sure that your team will not be able to make it this year. Sorry for the price increase this year but it had to be done due to an increase in our costs. $20/team skins ARE included in the foursome cost.
