A few years ago, WMJI morning-show man Jimmy Malone and his wife, April, were looking for a charity and ended up with a golf outing. "My wife and I wanted to donate money where all of the money wasn't used up for administrative fees," he explains. "We had no idea it would take off the way it did."
For more information on the Malone outing, call (216) 241-5587, ext. 113. Read on for a list of other good excuses to hit the greens.
