LIMA – The Husky Energy Lima Refinery Charity Golf Outing raised $217,400 in support of 15 local charities, setting a new record. In its tenth year, this outing has donated over $1,022,000 to the Lima community.

“We feel blessed to have been chosen as one of the recipients of Husky’s Charity Golf Outing this year,” said Brandi Schroeder, Executive Director of Lima’s Samaritan House.  “This donation will go a long way in covering expenses for updates and repairs in two, possibly three, of the seven bathrooms within the shelter. It is simply amazing to consider how many lives the Husky outing has touched with this community support over the past ten years.”

  • Allen County Historical Society
  • Awaking Minds Art
  • Big Brothers, Big Sisters
  • Bradfield Center
  • Children’s Development Center

  • Lima Allen County Crime Stoppers
  • Lima- Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program, Inc.
  • Lima Rescue Mission
  • Northwest Ohio Literacy Council

“The golf outing is one way the Lima Refinery and many of our business partners support the Lima community,” said Ed Goedde, Director of Project Engineering and Turnarounds, and Charity Golf Outing chairperson. “We would like to thank the generous support of our 104 sponsors, 416 golfers, and 70 volunteers.  Many organizations and individuals contributed and volunteered their time to make this event a success.”

Donations were presented to the organizations on Wednesday, August 31 during a dessert reception.
