Lee Contracting hosted its third annual charity golf outing, raising $13,400 for The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund. The outing was held on August 16th at Cherry Creek Golf Club in Shelby Township. Over 150 Lee customers, vendors and employees participated in the outing which included 18 holes of golf, breakfast, lunch, dinner, an awards ceremony and prize drawings.
During the outing, there were several different contests set up on the course. There were four hole-in-one contests, where someone could have won $10,000 cash. Other hole-in-one prizes included, airline tickets, a golf bag, or a 7-day Caribbean Cruise. There were also smaller contests such as longest drive and closest to the pin. On another hole, we had the ‘Vegas Hole’ where golfers could wager money on the accuracy of their drive. If their shot landed on the green, they won double their money back. If their shot landed anywhere else, their wager would be donated to The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund. Sgt. David Denhardt joined as our guest of honor and completed many celebrity shots during the day.
Following golf, attendees had an opportunity to network during cocktail hour, buy prize tickets and enjoy dinner. After dinner, awards were handed out to the winners of the longest drive and closest to the pin contests, as well as the winning team of the outing.
The outing ended with a drawing for a variety of different prizes, several of which our vendors graciously donated. Prizes included: Tiger’s tickets, a Traeger Grill, cornhole boards, tools, golf clubs, free golf and signed sports memorabilia.
