This weekend, hundreds of people will hit the links at the Country Club of Avon for a good cause. The fourth annual Connor Scott Zieky Foundation Golf Outing continues to grow and raise thousands of dollars for addiction treatment and mental health services.
The Zieky family started the outing in honor of their son, Connor, who passed away when he was 27 years old after an accidental drug overdose.
His three brothers want to remind people that this can happen to anyone.
“Since that day, we knew we had a responsibility to try and help other kids that are going through similar issues,” Alex Zieky said.

The event is set for Saturday, Aug. 13 at the Country Club of Avon. There are still morning tee times available.
