This year’s Kielbasa Klassic 4-Man Golf Scramble was held on Sunday, August 4th, at the Giant Oak Golf Course in Temperance Michigan. There were 15 teams for a total of 60 players, competing for first place. This year’s winners were Dave Martin, John Danielski, Jim Carey, and Tom Cunningham. Along with winner “bragging rights”, they also won a $300 cash prize and gift certificates to Stanley’s Market. Golfers took home door prizes and the famous “Kielbasa Klassic” t-shirt.
The Polish-American Community of Toledo (PACT) and the Toledo Poznan Alliance (TPA) joined forces and awarded three scholarships to area students totaling more than $2,000, including the first Martin A. Blaszczyk Memorial Scholarship.
Mr. Blaszczyk was the editor of the Lagrange St. News and a strong advocate for the Toledo Polish community for more than 30 years. Mr. Blaszczyk died of cancer on April 27, 2013. He was 59.
