The Board approved the minutes of the July 13, 2004 Regular and Special Meetings.



On May 20 – 23, 2004, professional golf’s Nationwide Tour returned to Henrico County with the County serving as the primary sponsor.  Currently known as the Henrico County Open, this exciting event drew more than 20,000 fans, received nationwide television coverage on the Golf Channel, and had an estimated impact on the local economy in excess of $4 million.  This year’s tournament raised $10,000 in charitable proceeds for the Virginia Home for Boys, the second oldest children’s home in the United States.  Established in 1846, the Virginia Home for Boys provides residential and emergency care, school programs, and therapeutic and aftercare services to at-risk children in a family-style environment on a 33-acre campus in Henrico County.  Dave Marhagey, Tournament Director, and Fred Agostino, Executive Director of the Economic Development Authority, joined Mrs. O’Bannon as she presented a check to Tod Balsbaugh, Executive Director of the Virginia Home for Boys.
