The 17th annual golf classic hosted by the Avondale Education Foundation will take place on Wednesday, June 17, at Fieldstone Golf Club. All proceeds from the golf classic, subtitled as Fore Education for Life, go to Avondale Education Foundation grants, scholarships and to help supply and maintain the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) machines in the Avondale School District.
"The golf classic is a highly anticipated event each year," Tom DelPup, Avondale Education Foundation president said. "Not only is it a great opportunity for the Avondale community and its supporters to enjoy a favorite summer pastime in Michigan, it is also one of our largest fundraisers and helps support students in the Avondale School District through multiple initiatives."
The golf outing begins with check-in at 7:30 a.m. and shot-gun start at 8:30 a.m. and will be played in a four-person scramble format. Tickets are $125 per person, which includes continental breakfast, an 18-hole scramble with cart, lunch at the turn, door prize opportunities, closest to the pin prizes, longest drive prizes, dinner following golf and an awards ceremony. Participants can also choose to partake in the marshmallow drive, Vegas hole, skins contest, mulligans and/or a raffle.
