UofM Club Charity Golf Outing - Monday, May 22nd

The U-M Club of Grand Rapids is hosting a golf outing to raise funds for our scholarship program on Monday, May 22, 2017. The U-M Club of Grand Rapids is the largest scholarship program of its type sponsored by an alumni club for any university in the United States. The purpose of the fund is to help provide financial support to local area students, that have been accepted to the University of Michigan, based on a combination merit and need. More than 60 local West Michigan students are supported annually. The scholarships are awarded for four years and currently $3,750 per year per student.

After an absence of several years, we are returning to Kent Country Club for this event. The course and clubhouse have been updated and you won't want to miss golfing this private members-only premiere course. We are planning a full day of golf, dinner, raffle, silent auction, and the opportunity to socialize with fellow Wolverines.

Golf will begin with a shotgun start at noon. Registration will open at 10:30 am and lunch will be provided for golfers prior to the start. There will be a social hour following golf, with drinks and snacks, followed by dinner at 6:00 pm.

On course, there will be an opportunity to purchase a ticket to compete in the Hole in One with the chance to win a car from Fox Ford.

As always, we will have both a raffle and silent auction. The raffle will include Michigan Football ticket packages with raffle tickets costing $10 or 6 for $50.
