2017 Golf Classic Fundraiser

A Successful Golf Classic!

Thanks to presenting sponsor, D&W Mechanical, contributions from sponsors, event participants, dedicated volunteers and planning committee, our 2017 Golf Classic was a great success, raising $14,000 for Art Park education programs.

With hundreds of area students visiting the Art Park on school field trips annually, and additional programs throughout the year, education is an integral component to the park’s offerings. All the artwork in the park is connected in some way to Michigan history, culture, or environment, and the Looking to Learn education materials help students visiting the park make personal connections to the topics they study in the classroom.

Golf Classic participants enjoyed a beautiful blue-sky day on Crystal Mountain’s Mountain Ridge course in support of the cause. A variety of prizes boosted the fun, with men’s, women’s, and mixed teams not only competing for the best scores, but other competitions, including longest drive and closest to the pin. Golfers could even enhance their game with proximity cards and hire a pro to step in to take their tee shot. Serra Traverse City sponsored the hole-in-one contest, although no lucky golfers walked away with the Subaru this year.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed to make this event successful. It makes a big impact on kids in northern Michigan.
