Beacon House holds launch party for golf classic

The Beacon House is getting a head start planning its 3rd Annual Upper Peninsula Celebrity Golf Classic.

The Beacon House hosted a launch party for the June 2013 event Wednesday night.  It was held at the Ore Dock Brewery in downtown Marquette.  This is the first year The Beacon House decided to host a launch party to kick off the golf classic.

Over 100 people attended the launch party.  Guests were able to sample some of the Ore Dock’s beer, and appetizers also were served.

All of the money raised from the launch party goes directly to The Beacon House.  The golf classic is The Beacon House’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

The beacon house is a non–profit hospitality house for patients and family members to stay to get access to medical care.

The Upper Peninsula Celebrity Golf Classic, hosted by Steve Mariucci, will tale place June 26th and 27th.

Mary Dowling, Director of Development for The Beacon House said new information about UPCGC will be posted to their website,
