For a good cause

From the Reds:

The third annual Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions “Marty Brennaman Golf Classic…And This One Belongs to the Reds Community Fund” takes place this weekend, Sunday and Monday, Sept. 9-10, at Belterra Casino Resort & Spa in Belterra, Ind.

“We’re looking forward to a bigger and better event that will raise more charitable dollars for the Reds Community Fund,” said Brennaman. “We’re excited to add some new features as well as an additional round of golf at the fabulous Tom Fazio-designed course at Belterra.”

The event is hosted by Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions and Cincinnati Bell. Presenting sponsors include Cintas and Switzerland County Tourism, which will host the Sunday night concert featuring “Rain: The Beatles Experience” at the CenterStage Showroom at Belterra. The Sunday night dinner will be presented by Jeff Ruby, as well as Hilary and Dr. Tim Kremchek of Beacon Orthopaedics. National City, Paycor, hhgregg, Maker’s Mark, Trophy Awards and Game Day Communications are also event sponsors.

The Reds Community Fund is the official nonprofit arm of the Cincinnati Reds. Established in 2001, the Community Fund is dedicated to improving the lives of youth through baseball.

Since its inception in 2005, the Marty Brennaman Golf Classic has raised more than $200,000 for the Reds Community Fund and its baseball-themed outreach programs. To date, the Community Fund has renovated 64 inner-city baseball fields with 100 more scheduled for improvements in 2007. The Community Fund also underwrites expenses for 144 inner-city youth baseball and softball teams and operates the Reds Rookie Success League in Cincinnati and Butler County.

The event is a near sellout, although there are single spaces available for the golf scrambles. Couples can purchase space at the Sunday night events, which includes a hotel room. For more information, contact Reds Community Fund Executive Director Charley Frank at (513) 765-7231 or visit redscommunityfund.com.

I don't know how many Reds will be there. My guess is not a lot. I think Votto will start two of the three games -- at least.
