CARSTAR Cincinnati Business Group Hosts Annual Golf Outing

CARSTAR Cincinnati Business Group Golf Outing Raises Over $12,000 for Fisher House Foundation

Military members and Gold Star Dads honored during the patriotic event.

carstar-golfThe CARSTAR Cincinnati Business group hosted their annual Golf Outing at TPC River’s Bend on Aug. 31st, with proceeds benefiting the Fisher House Foundation. This year’s event raised a total of $12,000 through golf entry fees and major sponsors like Enterprise Car Rental and BASF.

The day kicked off with skydivers from Team Fastrax jumping in with the largest American flag flown by a skydiver at 7,800 square feet. Once the flag opened during their descent, the National Anthem was played for everyone in attendance. As soon as the jumpers landed, there was a flyover by a P-51 Mustang, followed by a single bugle rendition of Taps.

“It was really an amazing day,” said Jim West. “When you bring in the extras like the flyover and skydivers with the American flag, plus having military on hand to be honored at the event, it truly is special. Being able to give a large donation to the Fisher House makes all of the hard work that goes into the event worth it.”

Two Gold Star Dads were invited as special guests. Gold Star Dads are fathers who have lost their sons or daughters at war. This year’s guests, John Prazinski and Jim Miller, both lost their sons fighting for our country. Prazinski said grace for the evening awards dinner, which was emceed by Dave Lapham, color analyst for the Cincinnati Bengals.
