Honor Vince Koza by volunteering at the American Cancer Society golf outing.
The good friend of the Lima Rotary Club, Vince Koza, is being honored again. Every year Vince would come to Rotary to lead the boys & girls fall and winter sports coaches showcase. We all enjoyed his interviews with the coaches. A Jefferson Award nominee for 2020, Vince Koza is the honoree for this year’s American Cancer Society’s (ACS) Golf Tournament of Allen County. The event is happening on August 3rd at Shawnee Country Club. Vince was a member of the Volunteer Leadership Council for ACS for about 10 years. He served with several Rotarians on that board. He was chairperson for 2 years ending in 2018. Before his own battle against cancer, Vince also helped his father and mother deal with the disease. This was his emphasis in becoming active in the area council. He, along with wife Holly, have been spokespeople and committee members for ‘Making Strides Against Breast Cancer’ and ‘Celebrity Waiters’ fund raiser ACS events. This year’s golf event is almost the 40th year of the event. The event has honored other Rotarians such as Jonalee Schmidt, Jack Crouse, and Chuck Osborn. If you are interested in helping honor Vince on 8/3, you can volunteer as a course spotter in the morning or afternoon, you can buy a ticket to the cocktail reception/celebration of life & charity auction starting at 6 pm, or you can find a 4some of golfers.
