Annual celebrity golf scramble benefits abused children

The community can golf for good and support children at LACASA Center by registering for the organization’s annual “Drive Out Child Abuse” Celebrity Golf Scramble set for June 28, 2021, at Oak Pointe Country Club in Brighton. All proceeds from this fundraiser help vulnerable victims of child abuse from the community.

Golfers will mix and mingle with professional sports celebrities while they play for charity. Attendees are welcome to take photos with the celebrity athletes.

This year’s featured athletes are Tony Scheffler, former Detroit professional football player; Eddie Murray, former Detroit professional football player; Brent Fedyk, former Detroit professional hockey player; John Ogrodnick, former Detroit professional hockey player; and Dave Rozema, former Detroit professional baseball player.

Each team that registers will be named for a child who receives services at LACASA Center and will play for that child at the outing. Proceeds from the day’s events stay local and benefit LACASA’s Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Council and LACASA’s Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program.

Attendees can expect plenty of food and fun the entire day. Event tickets include 18-holes of golf with a cart, continental breakfast, a goody bag, drink tickets, lunch at the turn; a variety of games and competitions, day-long silent auction, and mid-afternoon awards dinner.

Registration is open and the cost is $125 per player, $250 per twosome, and $500 per foursome.

Early registration is encouraged, as this event sells out every year. Golfers who register by Saturday, May 1, are entered to win four tickets to LACASA’s fall fundraiser, Denim & Diamonds at Haggerty-Bearden Ranch in Howell. The final deadline to register for the outing is Monday, June 28. Individual golfers will be paired with others to complete teams.
