The Inaugural Steve Pryseski Memorial Golf Open is set for Sunday (Aug. 10) at Sunny Hill Golf Course in Kent.
The event honors Pryseski, a former teacher and coach at Ellet, and an athletic official in the Akron Public Schools that passed away last year. It will have a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m., and will have contests such as closest to the pin, longest drive and putting skill.
A granite marker at the landscaping on the 17th hole will be dedicated in memory of Steve at 8 a.m.
Proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society and the Ellet Student Athlete Pryseski Scholarship Fund.
