Ten teams took part in the Denny Klepper Memorial Golf Outing, with a foursome made up of Andy Zay, Terri Boone, Tara Boone and Derek Boone finishing with top honors.

The outing was held June 14 at the LaFontaine Golf Club. Students from Huntington Catholic School volunteered to help at the tournament.

Proceeds from the event were donated to Huntington Catholic School, where Klepper's daughter was a student at the time of his death in 2008 of injuries suffered in a work-related accident.

This was the fourth year for the tournament, which was organized by members of the golf league where Klepper played for more than 15 years. The Knights of Columbus, where he was a Fourth Degree member, has agreed to sponsor future tournaments.
