ASFM Golf Outing Raises Money for Michele Myrick Scholarship Fund
This year’s “A Stronger Financial Michigan” Golf Outing is set for July 19 at the Forest Akers Golf Course in East Lansing. For the 16th year, Michigan credit unions will take to the course to raise scholarship money for ASFM and the 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, D.C. Last year, Michigan credit union leaders helped raise more than $35,000 for ASFM and the scholarship program.
A registration and sponsorship brochure for the event is available at the ASFM Golf Outing website. Golfers can also register and pay online. Registration at the outing begins at 9:00 a.m. Play is scheduled to begin with a shotgun start at 10 a.m., followed by dinner and awards at 3:15 p.m. Awards will be presented for closest to the pin, longest putt, longest drive and first place and runner-up teams. The cost is $200 per person, $750 per foursome, and 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 have been sent to credit unions.
