Be Like Joe Golf Outing - 2014

Upwards of 75 people were greeted by a perfect summer day at the 5th Outing on July 14th at Brookside Golf Course in Saline, MI. Many familiar and some new faces enjoyed the buffet lunch catered by Oscar Cotero of Oscar's Sports and Grill in Saline.

At noon 16 teams ventured out on the links for an enjoyable day of golf under the bright sunshine and cool temperatures. "It seems like every year, we get a perfect day for the outing ... but I think today is the best we've had. It's great turnout and a really great tribute to Joe". said Jim Magara, President of the Be Like Joe Memorial Fund.

This year the BLJMF awarded two scholarships to graduating seniors at Saline High School; Kaj Althaus and Maria Romero. Since it's inception, the fund has awarded 15 scholarships to very deserving student athletes. "This is a bittersweet day for us. But it's great to see everyone this year and to help these students get started in their college careers" Magara said.

 

Special thanks go out to Mike and Anne Vara, Ned and Sandy Suddendorf, Allison Vara, Kaitlyn Suddendorf and Terri Blovits who all volunteered and contributed to make this year’s event a successful one.

Next year's event will once again be held at Brookside Golf Course in Saline.

The Be Like Joe Memorial Fund is a recognized 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization
