“Your day of golf positively impacts 24,000 girls and 7,500 adult volunteers right here in Southeastern Michigan,” said Gerald McCarty II, chairman of the GSSEM Golf Committee. McCarty, who is Vice President for Student Services at Baker College of Flint continued, “Being the father of five daughters who were Girl Scouts, I saw firsthand the tremendously positive experience my daughters had with the leader and members of their troop.”
The outing will feature lunch, an 18-hole scramble, silent auction and dinner banquet. Prizes and awards for longest drive, closest to the pin and more will also be presented at the banquet.
“The FORE! the Girls Golf Classic is a great way to support the mission of the Girl Scouts, and at the same time play on a course that once hosted the Buick Open and the AJGA Buick Open,” said Karen Murphy, Chief Development Officer of GSSEM.
