NORTHWEST OHIO — Friends of Greg Horstman of Ottoville had to sit by while their comrade fought and lost his lengthy battle with cancer. Horstman was just 31 and left behind a wife and five children.
Seeing the devastation to the Horstman family after losing its patriarch, friend Todd Altenburger and eight others saw a need for financial support for families affected by the illness or death of a loved one. And so, the Make It Enough Foundation was born.
“Our mission is ‘To provide direct assistance to Ohio families that are experiencing financial need as the result of an illness or death of a family member’,” Foundation Chair Altenburger said of the community-based organization. “We formed legally this year as the result of last year’s death of a mutual friend.”
Horstman was originally from the Cloverdale area and all nine of the founding board members of the MIEF organization went to Ottoville or Fort Jennings High School.
The organization’s first major formal event is going to be a golf scramble on June 17 at the Findlay County Club.
“We decided to have the event in Findlay because there will be some prominent former/current Ohio State personnel in attendance and Findlay seemed more of a central location for those coming from Columbus, Toledo, etc.,” Altenburger said.
Team registration is $50, which includes greens fees and a cart for a foursome, gift bag and dinner after the scramble. Mulligans are $5 a piece with a limit of 10 per team. There will also be a “Beat the Pro” contest.
The range opens at 9 a.m. with tee-off at 10:30 a.m. Dinner will be served at 4 p.m. with trophy presentations, the Long-Drive Contest and Closest to Pin winners and silent auction results.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Checks made out to “Make It Enough Foundation” can be mailed to PO Box 221, Ottoville OH 45876.
Contact Altenburger at 614-595-5684 for sponsorship or more information.
