UPCGC planning continues

It does not feel like spring outside yet in Upper Michigan.  But, golf season is drawing nearer, even with snow on the ground.

Golf season brings preparations for the 3rd Annual Upper Peninsula Celebrity Golf Classic.

The Golf Classic is the biggest fundraising event for the Beacon House.  The event covers almost a third of the cost of operating Beacon House for the year.

Organizing the event has been progressing, and has been successful so far.

“It really neat when you get the professionals and they really know what they’re doing, they know what makes a good tournament, and they know how to entertain people on the course,” Mary Dowling, Director of Development for the Beacon House said.  “They know how to orchestrate everything from beginning to end.  We’re so blessed.  And we’re going to make it bigger and better this year.”

The golf outing has featured many celebrities in the past.  Celebrities participating this year are just as excited to be apart of the fundraising event.

The Celebrity Golf classic will be taking place on June 27, with a match party featuring cocktails and a live auction with Steve Mariucci on June 26th.
