Detroit, MI (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
Ready, Set, Scramble at Forest Lake Country Club, Bloomfield Hills, MI for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s 21st Annual Memorial Golf Classic on Monday, June 18, 2012. This annual event raises funds to send disadvantaged children to a summer camp experience at Camp Ozanam, located on the sandy shores of Lake Huron.
Major sponsors for the event include Employees Only of Auburn Hills, MI and Oakland MRI of Troy, MI. The event will feature as its celebrity auctioneer; Vic Faust of WXYZ-TV/Channel 7 News in Detroit. Special Hole-in-One prizes for Par 3 holes include $10,000 cash, a Breitling Watch, or a 2012 Camaro 2SS! In addition, the day will be filled with golf, fun, dinner, silent and live auctions. Last year’s golf outing raised over $80,000, enough to send 160 children to Camp Ozanam.
“Camp Ozanam provides the benefits of a summer camp in a safe, fun-filled atmosphere”, said Bill Brazier, Executive Director of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. “We see camp as a way to help children understand a positive way of life.”
Space is still available for those wanting to support St. Vincent de Paul’s camp program by participating in the golf outing or attending dinner. Contact Sommer Brock, Manager of Marketing & Special Events at sbrock (at) svdpdet (dot) org for more information, or visit [http://www.svdpdetroit.org
