Be Like Joe Golf Outing - 2015

The 85 people, who braved the cool morning drizzle, were rewarded with to bright sunshine and warm temperatures as the Sixth Be Like Joe Golf Outing teed off 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 13 teams ventured out for a memorable day of golf. "I think this is the first year it's rained on our parade" said Jim Magara, President of the Be Like Joe Memorial Fund. "But our turnout is good" he added "and it's good to see some new faces this year — we're getting our message out."

This year the BLJMF awarded four scholarships to graduating seniors at Saline High School: Sarah Miller; Teddy Lenk; Elly Schwingel and Ben Suddendorf. Since its inception, the fund has awarded 19 scholarships to very deserving student athletes. "With each scholarship, we're getting closer to fulfilling our objectives. We're really proud to support these young men and women who have proven themselves as championship athletes and extraordinary people" said Magara.


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

The 2016 outing will again be held at Brookside Golf Course in Saline.
