Golfers hit the links for local Big Brothers Big Sisters

MADEIRA, OH (FOX19) -

More than 200 golfers hit the links on Monday to benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati.

The golf outing was held at Kenwood Country Club in an effort to raise funds and awareness for the organization.

Following the 18 rounds, 1000 numbered balls were dropped from a crane in the 'TQL Golf Ball Drop for Kids'.  Prizes were awarded for a hole-in-one, closest to and furthers from a pin.

The Mercy Men also performed a post-golf concert. Attendees enjoyed food and drinks courtesy of Outback Steakhouse.

The Big Brothers Big Sisters program pairs adult mentors with children to serve as a positive role model.

FOX19 was a proud sponsor of the event.
