Annual Ohio Golf Outing


After having held five very successful golf outings in MI, it was time to share the fun, sport, and fundraising of a golf outing with the OH community. Thus on September 15, 2012, the annual OH golf outing was born!!  It was a 4 person scramble at one of the finest courses in the Cleveland area --- Mallard Creek Golf Club in Columbia Station, OH. It was a great turnout, raising over $6,500 and fun was had by all! The event continued to evolve and in 2013 was held closer to the SFSF headquarters in Avon Lake, OH at Legacy 18 of The Sweetbriar Golf Club in Avon Lake, OH. A repeat at Legacy 18 in 2014 and another successful turnout established Avon Lake as the location for the OH outing. Regardless of the location, as in every year, the goal is always the same --- a day of fun while raising money for a great cause!

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE ATTENDED THE OHIO GOLF OUTINGS...THEY WERE A HUGE SUCCESS! HOPE TO SEE YOU THIS YEAR!

Sixth Annual Ohio Golf Outing
Saturday, July 22, 2017
Sweetbriar Golf Club ~ Legacy 18
Avon Lake, OH

Legacy 18, built in 2002 and 2007, is comprised of the front and back nines of Legacy. Together they offer two different landscapes. The front 9 is a links style layout with windy fairways and large greens and the back 9 is built through a wooded landscape with a more traditional East Coast feel. The greens are "some of the finest...in Northern Ohio."

In addition to lunch, outstanding golf (complete with cart), dinner and beverages, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction, Chinese raffle, and door prize drawings...all to benefit Smiles For Sophie Forever. 

To volunteer, donate goods or services, or to be a corporate sponsor, contact Marc Quayle at marcus@smilesforsophieforever.org or Mike Bova at mike@smilesforsophieforever.org.

We hope to see you on July 22!!

Annual Birthday Bash and Dash

The Smiles For Sophie Forever 5K and 1 Mile Run/Walk, held on July 4, 2008, was the maiden fundraising event for the foundation. The event is not only a race, but is a day of fun for all, with kids’ activities, food, drinks, music and games, but most importantly it is a birthday celebration for Sophie. Sophie was born on July 4, 2003, and since a traditional birthday celebration for Sophie is not possible, her parents, Emily and Marc, couldn’t think of a better way to spend each 4th of July, than with an event like this.

The ideas for this inaugural fundraiser came just three months before the day of the event, and Emily and Marc thought they’d be lucky to see about 250 participants. But as their endless team of supporters and volunteers showed, their expectations were blown away! There were over 890 race registrants, approximately 450 kids who participated in the after-race activities, and over $50,000 were raised. It was certainly a wonderful way to celebrate Sophie’s first birthday in heaven. And with the few days of rain just prior to the 4th, Sophie must have had her hand in the planning, as the weather was absolutely beautiful!

The event would not have been a success without all the hard work of the volunteers and all who participated. So, thank you to those who were there in 2008 and every year since that inaugural event. We hope to see you at the Smiles For Sophie Forever Birthday Bash and Dash! For those of you who haven’t been able to join us in years past, please consider making this event part of your 4th of July activities by joining us this year and in the years to come. It is only with your continued support and dedication that the foundation’s mission of raising awareness, funds, and helping other families afflicted will be realized.

Happy Birthday Sweet Sophie Girl!
