The 25th Annual “On the Course for Academic Achievement” Golf Outing To Benefit the Urban League of Detroit and Southeastern Michigan

The Urban League of Detroit and Southeastern Michigan (ULDSEM), celebrating 100 years of service, will host its 25th Annual Golf Outing “On the Course for Academic Achievement,” on Monday,
August 15, 2016.

The golf outing will be held at the prestigious TPC in Dearborn, Michigan. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast at 8:00 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Lunch and refreshments will be served on the golf course, and a full-course buffet will await the golfers as they finish their round of play. Raffles and a silent auction will also be held for fabulous prizes. In addition, participants will be able to enter various competitions in conjunction with prizes, including longest drive and closest to the pin. The Awards Ceremony and Recognitions will be held in the TPC banquet room during the buffet.

Golfers participating will win the satisfaction of supporting youth development and educational initiatives, and knowing that the ULDSEM are good stewards of each dollar raised through its “On the Course for Academic Achievement” golf outing.

The results are in for the 2016 ULDSEM College Club graduates with scholarship totaling over $1Million! This is very impressive news! Here’s a highlight of some of the College Club students: Alana Crawford ($399,788) will attend Xavier University; Daria Bailey ($347,206) will attend Michigan State University; Daziah Parker ($168,520) will attend Michigan State University; Donte Woodget ($64,500) will attend University of Michigan; Jade Isby ($41,050) will attend University of Michigan; and LaShante Parker ($109,407) will attend Oakland University. Supporters of the golf outing helped make all of this possible.

“Our annual golf outing has a dual purpose,’ said N. Charles Anderson, President & CEO; ‘it is a friend and fund raiser in support of our important programming for youth, and a great day of fun while celebrating the successes of the students we serve throughout the year.”

The ULDSEM is the one non-profit in the region that is tackling the tough issues every day with our signature programs and services that produce tangible and impactful outcomes. By increasing the graduation rates in our region, we are equipping our youth with the educational tools they need to be successful members of society.
