Jon Weeks Memorial winner picks up new vehicle


Area resident Rita Robinson recently picked up her new car donated by Kia of Dayton that she won after she shot a hole-in-one at the Jon Weeks Memorial Golf Tournament.

Some of the other individuals who traveled with her to pick up the car include Scott Robinson, Erik Weeks, Nicholas Weeks, Sharman Weeks, Dick Weeks and Jane Weeks.

The golf tournament was hosted during September to benefit the Jon Weeks Memorial Medical Assistance Fund. Mr. Weeks passed away in March following a year-long battle with complications following a pancreas transplant.

The fund was created by his family to help others in their time of unforeseen financial hardship and catastrophic medical conditions that go beyond insurance funds.

Tim Bowers, Martin Management Group’s corporate director of variable operations, helped to orchestrate the new car donation in an effort to gain awareness for the memorial fund.

Anyone wishing to donate to the tax-deductible charity through the Mary Rutan Foundation can contact 592-4015.
