We were recently awarded a grant from the Community Foundation of Hancock County for $7,247 that goes toward the Jim Andrews Technology Center. We are grateful to the donors who made these funds to support our mission possible. The 2023 Annual Grant Cycle was open to any 501(c)3 or charitable tax-exempt organization serving Hancock County. This grant cycle granted more than $140,000 to 26 organizations from a collection of CFHC’s unrestricted resources and field of interest funds. ... See MoreSee Less
We are so grateful for the community support in attending, sponsoring, or donating to the Ron Horning Memorial Golf Classic this past Friday at Arrowhead Golf Course. The rain held up long enough to get both flights in and help to raise funds not only for the Ron Horning Scholarship (which helps a graduating Hancock County senior and former Club member, to pursue professional certification, associates, or bachelors degrees), but also for scholarships for youth to attend our after-school and summer programs.Congratulations to our winners from this year Jeff Mckee, Josh Bilbrey, Isaac Galbraith, and Randy Mathews.Second place (after a tie-breaker hat draw) went to Tim Albers, Scott Couger, Courtney Brodie, and Luke Swartz.This is our largest one day fundraising event of the year! If you'd like to participate in next year's event, bookmark www.bgchc.com/ron-horning-memorial-golf-classic for registration, sponsorships, and updates.Our next event takes place Saturday August 12th with our Back-to-School bash including our 5k and Cornhole Tournament. ...
