Shields of Hope West Michigan is delighted and honored to invite you to our 2nd annual Heroes FORE Heroes Charity Golf Outing on Friday, August 9, 2019. Join us for an exciting 18-hole scramble and support Shields of Hope’s mission to spread hope, love, and encouragement to families in West Michigan who are affected by cancer. Shields of Hope is a local non-profit comprised of local public safety officials and volunteers.
The day will kick off with registration at 11:30 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Players will compete in teams of 4. You may sign up individually ($100) or as a team ($400). Food will be served concluding the event which is included in your registration along with greens and cart fees. Immediately following golf there will be a light dinner, short presentation, awards ceremony, and prizes!
Heroes FORE Heroes is a new and exciting way to support Shields of Hope’s programs:
Heroes Helping Heroes – Each year, we take 30 plus families whom have a hero of their own to Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City; a hero in the form of cancer fighter/warrior. Heroes Helping Heroes is an all-expense paid weekend retreat for heroes and their families where they are able to reconnect with each other while connecting with others who are walking the same journey. Activities during the weekend include: family movie night, break-out sessions, public safety vehicle exhibit, bonfire, giveaways, and of course the water park.
Home Visits – Shields of Hope members and volunteers, law enforcement officials, firefighters and the community come together to show the fighter and their family that they are not in the battle alone. At a home visit the cancer fighter and family can expect to receive many hugs, words of encouragement, a care package, and a challenge coin. If able, fighters and warriors have the opportunity to sign our ‘fighter car’ which consists of signatures and messages of other fighters we have had the honor of visiting.
Heroes Holidays – We understand the financial strain a family can endure during and after a cancer battle. Our Heroes Holidays program was designed to lighten that burden during the holiday season. Selected families are adopted and given a full Christmas with gifts, clothes, food, toiletries, household items and more. We cover it all!
Thank you for your time and consideration to join us for this great event. There are several donation and sponsorship opportunities available.
