Following the golfing benefit the festivities will continue at the Barn where there will be a live performance by Felonious Goat along with a silent and live auction. Included in the auction are items such as a signed OSU football by heisman winner Troy Smith, Aaron Parry and several others. There are also Cleveland cavelers championship items in the auction. As well as OSU corn hole. Tennis pkg. Penguins Stanley cup winner items plus many more items.

Shelly Lynch said she works with Kason’s father, Jason Wilhelm and wanted to do something for the family.

“Jason is a co-worker of mine and we found out about a year and a half ago about Kason. Kelly has always put on a lot of golf outings, she did one for my son a couple years ago so I thought I wanted to do something for the family,” said Shelly Lynch, Co-Host, Golf Outing for Kason Wilhelm.
