Monday May 8th, former Cincinnati Bengal star, Ickey Woods, shuffles into the Dayton area for charity, and he needs your help. It is for a cause named after his late son, Jovante, who succumbed to a severe asthma attack during his high school years.
Food Adventures is proud to be a small part of this event. We look forward to a fun day of golf with friends and celebs.
Archer’s Tavern, Boyle Mechanical, Dayton Freight are the major sponsors of the event. The 2017 Fairways for Airways Celebrity Golf Outing on the South Course of the NCR Country Club is the 2nd annual event for this cause. The weather forecast is calling for clear skies with little to no chance for rain. Temperatures should be in the high 50s for the noon shotgun start and the low 60s during most of the outing. Perfect Golf Weather. There is still time for you to sign up for this one of a kind experience.
Each foursome will be paired with a celebrity for a round of golf.
In the past, former Reds, Bengals and Buckeye stars have been participating. Former appearances have included James Brooks, Tom Browning, Archie Griffin, Jim Breech, Pete Johnson, Yancy Thigpen, Andy Harmon, Dmitri Young, Barney Bussey, Steve Caminiti, Richard Carey, Doug Pelfrey, Dan Wilkinson, Eric Shaw, Ernie Mills, Eric Thomas, Frank Minnifield, Lonzell Hill, Joe Kelly, Robert Jackson, Kanavis Mcghee, Katie Blackburn, Michael Wiley
and of course Ickey himself…
