The fifth annual MIS Cares Golf Scramble presented by OmniSource on Sept. 18 at The Grande Golf Club in Jackson, Michigan is your day to donate to MIS Cares. Enjoy a day on the course with your friends, family and co-workers to benefit a great cause.
A four-person team can register right online at http://www.mispeedway.com/golf. The cost is $150 per person and includes 18 holes of golf and two carts. Each golfer will also receive breakfast, lunch, dinner presented by FireKeepers Casino Hotel, two drinks, an event gift and much more.
Golfers can test their swings at The Grande Golf Club, satisfy their appetite with a dinner buffet, bid on one-of-a-kind auction items and spend a relaxing day on the greens. The best part is all proceeds benefit MIS Cares, the official charitable fund of MIS.
“The MIS Cares Golf Scramble is a fun event to invite area golfers to play one of the premier courses while benefitting a great cause,” MIS President Rick Brenner said. “We take pride in MIS Cares and how many organizations and people we can assist all year through our charitable fund. We are looking forward to seeing all the golfers take part in this event to support MIS Cares.”
The Golf Scramble will also feature an array of skills contests, a silent auction, as well as many other activities. Breakfast, lunch and music will be provided. The golfers will enjoy a dinner presented by FireKeepers Casino Hotel to conclude the day.
Registration for the day begins at 8:30 a.m. and golf will begin with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m.
For a small donation to support MIS Cares, you can prove your talent in a variety of contests for a chance to win one of the many prizes.
