GOLF "Giving Others Life Fund" is the first annual event to raise funds for families in need. All proceeds go to this years' honoree, Gloria VanBuskirk, wife of Jason, our course superintendent here at Stow Acres Country Club.


We are not a specific organization or charity foundation, simply a group of golfers with a desire to support Jason's family by raising money to help defray mounting medical and related expenses. When Jason was asked to select a name for the event honoring his wife he expressed a desire to make it an annual event to benefit a family in need… thus the launching of GOLF "Giving Others Life Fund".
