Food Adventures is all about fun, food and the lighter side of life. We pick out Dayton eatings spots and have great times doing so. Today however, we want to take time to mention a serious cause. Chef House, Hungry Jax and The Big Ragu are fans of the restaurants that give back to the community. Today we recognize another such effort from the owners of Archer’s Tavern in Centerville.
Today we recognize the final hours to get involved with a charitable cause at the 1st Annual Dayton Fairways for Airways a Celeb Pro-Am golf Outing to benefit the Javonte Woods Foundation.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— On August 14th, 2010, Princeton High School Student Jovante Woods died suddenly from a severe asthma attack. His parents, Ickey and Chandra, were inspired to keep his memory alive. They started the Javonte Woods foundation with the goal of educating and helping prevent others from experiencing the loss of a loved one to this condition.
— ARCHER’S TAVERN and Former Cincinnati Bengal’s Football star ICKEY WOODS have teamed up to hold a golf outing for the foundation at NCR Country Club Monday May 9th. Last minute golfers may be able to attend, email [email protected]
— Some of the celebs expected to be in attendance include:
Ed Young, former UD Basketball superstar
