The 4th Annual Volleyball Challenge held on April 29th was a huge success! Proceeds from the event benefitted the United Way of Ottawa County. The four main agencies participating in the event were the Ottawa County Board of Developmental Disabilities (OCBDD), OCTA, RVI and Ottawa Residential Services (ORSI). The team of RVI and ORSI won the challenge for the third straight year in a row. The team playing against them was from OCBDD and OCTA.
Everyone had a roaring good time as the Honorable Judge Kathleen Giesler and Commissioner Jim Sass entertained the crowd as Masters of Ceremony. Mr. Sass even donned a very unique hat complete with horns and fur. Donna Drusbacky put her amazing skills to use as the referee for the evening. Brenda Fastinger operated the scoreboard while Amy Cantu, Bri Combs and Kim Strong-Todd managed the concessions, bake sale, silent auction and 50/50 sales. Sharon Virtue greeted the wonderful patrons as she sold tickets at the door. Diane Shupp shared her photographic talents while capturing special moments from the event.
We would like to thank everyone that brought a canned good as that food was donated to the area food bank. Steve Lange generously donated his portion of the 50/50 back to the cause.
The Ottawa County Board of DD would like to give a huge shout-out to Camp Perry Red Horse Squadron for donating the hot dogs, buns and chips and to Port Clinton Middle School for generously donating their facilities for the evening.
Thank you to area businesses for displaying the Volleyball Challenge fliers in their business, to the Volleyball Committee for arranging the event and to all the agencies that donated items for the silent auction and bake sale.
We are pleased to announce that $593.50 was raised and donated to the United Way of Ottawa County. Thank you to everyone. LIVE UNITED!
