Please join us for our second annual Golf Fest on Friday, August 11th, a not-so-average charity golf outing, benefiting Detroit Achievement Academy and Detroit Prep. We will have a lot of really fun components to participate in throughout the whole day whether you are an avid golfer or just a fun-haver!
We are so excited to partner with tons of local Detroit talent to make this event the party of the summer! Here is what to expect:
Two separate shotgun tee times starting at 7:30am and 1:30pm
Mid-day, family-friendly activities featuiring, face painting, Detroit Pop Shop, and more! (participation is free!)
A variety of Food Trucks availble for lunch and snacks throughout the day!
Happy hour with signature cocktials inspired by Grey Ghost, Basan, and Second Best and sounds by DJ Blaaq Gold
BBQ dinner by some of Detroit's very best grill masters (Jermond Booze, Davante Burnely, and Fried Chicken & Caviar)! (happy hour & dinner tickets sold here!)
100% of the net proceeds will go towards ensuring that hundreds of students in Detroit have access to a world-class, equitable education and learning space for decades to come. Grab your clubs, dancing shoes, pack up your kids, bring your appetite, and tell everyone you know! We're so excited to do a lot of good and have a ton of fun!!!
A little bit about us!
Detroit Achievement Academy and Detroit Prep are free public charter schools serving 700 kindergarten - eighth grade students, and exist to holistically support the education and development of students who have the determination, drive, and skills to shape their own path of high achievement with the ultimate goal of creating civically engaged, joyful citizens who are ready to change the world.
Our school buildings are integral in living out our mission to serve thousands of Detroit students, but are an enormous investment. We believe that a joyful, student-centered space in which to learn and play should not be a privilege associated with socioeconomic status or zip code. We also believe that being responsible neighbors is also really important. We have a longstanding goal to be intentionally enmeshed with the neighborhood and to serve as active sites for our community to gather. Detroit Prep’s building was sitting empty for ten years before we brought it back to life. Detroit Achievement Academy’s building will have a state-of-the-art gymnasium and performance space that will be used by community groups, recreation leagues, and city organizations like Detroit PAL. We are not just schools in neighborhoods; we seek to be assets who add stabilization and value to our neighborhoods.
