This year’s “A Stronger Financial Michigan” Golf Outing – formerly CURE Golf Outing – is set for July 16 at the Forest Akers Golf Course in East Lansing. For the 13th year, Michigan credit unions will take to the course to raise scholarship money for the ASFM Michele Myrick Scholarship Fund. The scholarship fund provides financial assistance to participants of the MCUL & Affiliates Hike the Hill and the CUNA GAC grassroots lobbying trips to Washington. Last year, with more than 100 credit union industry leaders participating, over $33,000 was raised for the fund.
You can find the registration and sponsorship brochure for the event by visiting the ASFM Golf Outing website. Golfers may now also register and pay online. Registration at the outing begins at 9:30 a.m. Play is scheduled to begin with a shotgun start at 11 a.m., followed by dinner and awards at 4:30 p.m. Awards will be presented for closest to the pin, first place and runner-up teams and longest drive. The cost of $175 per person, $600 per foursome, includes green fees, golf cart, bag service, range balls, lunch and dinner.
Credit unions that cannot make the tournament can still show support by becoming sponsors. Sponsorships are open to all supporters of the credit union movement and are available at several different levels. The ASFM Golf Outing is the premier fundraiser for the ASFM Defense Fund scholarships. Detailed brochures on golf outing sponsorship opportunities as well as registration materials will soon be sent to credit unions.
