If you like to golf and support a good cause at the same time, the Huron Athletic Boosters has the perfect event for you!
On Sunday, Sept. 28, the Huron Athletic Booster Club will be hosting a golf outing that will help benefit students in Huron Township. The competition will take place at Pine View Golf Course, 5820 Stoney Creek Road, Ypsilanti, MI.
The event will feature a four-person scramble that costs $300 dollars per team, a hot dog at the turn and a steak dinner.
A four person scramble is a format used in friendly golf tournaments that, according to Huron Booster Member Roxanne Binkerhoff, allows players of all abilities to participate. Each player in the four-person scramble hits a drive and the team choses the best drive position for the next shot. This process continues until the team sinks a putt.
“It’s a fun format, especially for people who aren’t skilled golfers but want to participate in the event,” said Binkerhoff.
Binkerhoff said that the event includes teachers, administrators, board members, community business partners and parents. She said that everyone comes together to play a fun game of golf for a great cause, and players have the chance to participate in raffles, prizes and trophies.
The funds generated from the event will aid athletic seniors with a scholarship that aims to help students reach their educational goals. The scholarship can be applied to any education related costs including text books, lab fees, uniforms and other fees associated with the student’s studies, Binkerhoff noted.
“Last year we gave 11 scholarships away,” said Binkerhoff. “We also purchased equipment that is needed for all sports. Over the last eight years, we have purchased over $97,000 for the Huron Athletic Programs.”
The Huron Athletic Booster Club’s mission is to advance athletics within Huron High and Middle School by promoting school spirit, sportsmanship and encouragement for athletes.
The deadline to sign up is September 21. To sign up or for more information, contact Roxanne Binkerhoff at firstname.lastname@example.org or Connie Marchionda at Sal_Marchionda@hotmail.com. Participants can also send a check to the Huron Boosters, PO. box 103, New Boston, MI.
