Hoops For Hope and Irish Bob’s Golf Outing are rolling into Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana to benefit Make-A-Wish. One of these events is basketball, while the other features a golf tournament. Both events mix a fun sports tournament and the power to grant wishes for local children with critical illnesses. Read on for more information on helping children while having fun in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

Hoops For Hope

Irish Bob’s Golf Outing

The 11th Annual Irish Bob’s Golf Outing is a two part event. The first part is a golf tournament held at the beautiful Deer Creek Golf Course (7691 E Liberty St., Hubbard, Ohio 44425). Then the day caps off with a delicious dinner at Irish Bob’s (3602 South Ave., Youngstown, Ohio 44502).

This fun-filled day starting at 8:30 a.m. is more than just on-par with a usual day of golf.
