2016 V+V OPEN
On June 7th, sixty-eight (68) golfers from around the country descended on The Golf Club at Stonelick Hills near Batavia, Ohio to take part in The V+V Open and help raise over $50,000 for Visionaries + Voices. The V+V Open was the brainchild of V+V board member, Dan Muenzer, and his colleagues at Constantia Flexibles, an area company that has had a long and dedicated commitment to V+V’s well-being. Again, V+V artists, staff, and board members would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for an event that exceeded all expectations:

  • Constantia Flexibles and C Flex executives, Marty Dennis, David Howden, Tom Sargent, and Dan Muenzer for their relentless dedication to making The V+V Open a success
  • The Open’s sponsors   Link
  • V+V artists and volunteers who spent time before, during, and after the outing visiting with the golfers and talking about V+V and what it means to them
  • The on-course volunteers who made sure all golfers were sufficiently hydrated
  • The staff at Stonelick Hills who provided first-class help and support to all golfers and volunteers

The response to the event from the golfers/sponsors was very positive, many of whom indicated a willingness to return for a second V+V Open in 2017.
