Major donation to help fund junior golf tournament at Mill Creek Park

Local News

A big donation will go a long way for the Mill Creek MetroParks Foundation. 

The Mahoning Valley Hospital presented a check for $110,000 to the foundation on Tuesday. 

The donation means that the Mahoning Valley Hospital Foundation will be the title sponsor of the American Junior Golf Association Tournament over the next four years.

Organizers say this takes some of the pressure off of them.

“It’s good for the longevity of the event. In addition to that, it’s a huge economic impact for our facility and the Mahoning Valley being just a little bit under $2 million when it’s all said and done over the four-year term, so we’re excited about that and what it does for the local community here,” said Mill Creek’s PGA Director Brian Tolnar. 

A portion of the donation will also be used for two beautification projects at the US-224 and West Golf Drive entrances of the golf course.
