(Oceana County, MI) – The 3rd Annual Golf United event will take place on August 18, 2018 at the Oceana Golf Club in Shelby, with proceeds benefitting United Way of the Lakeshore programs in Oceana County



“We are so excited for our Annual Golf outing,” said Barbara Saunders Sims, United Way of the Lakeshore’s Oceana County Director. “It’s a great opportunity to enjoy a fun afternoon of golf and a delicious dinner, while helping working families in Oceana County succeed.”



In Oceana County, 47% of working, tax-paying families (also known as ALICE – Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) don’t make enough to cover the basics – housing, child care, food, health care and transportation. Proceeds from Golf United will help support programs that are helping these families succeed, by connecting them to resources for income stability, affordable child care, and more.



The event is a 4 person scramble, with a shotgun start at 1:00 pm; golfers of all skill levels are encouraged to join in the fun! Golfing will be followed by a dinner at 5:30, catered by Joanna Clark, with contests, prizes, and raffles. The cost per player is $75 or $55 for Oceana Golf Course Members. Guests are also welcome to join us for the dinner; cost is $10 per guest. Online registration is available www.unitedwaylakeshore.org/golf, or you may register in person at the Oceana Golf Club, 3333 W Weaver Rd, Shelby.



Organizers are also seeking sponsors for the event. Sponsorship dollars allow all registration dollars raised by golfers to go directly toward United Way programs in Oceana County that advance the education, financial stability and health of Oceana County families. Learn more about sponsorship levels at www.unitedwaylakeshore.org/golf, or call Barbara at 231-332-4005.



United Way of the Lakeshore is uniting to inspire change and build thriving communities. Our Bold Goal – 10,000 more working families meet their basic needs by 2025. For more information, contact United Way of the Lakeshore at 231-332-4047 or visit www.unitedwaylakeshore.org.
