Mel Trotter Ministries’ annual Golf Marathon of Hope will be held on Monday, June 8, 2015, at Railside Golf Club in Byron Center, Michigan. This is one of our largest fundraising events (thanks to some really, really generous supporters), and we LOVE IT for a variety of reasons. A short list provided below:
- WARMER WEATHER. It’s time to de-thaw, Michigan. Time to soak in the sunshine. Time to bring out the bikes. Time for boat rides and backyard bonfires. Time to run and to play and to be OUTSIDE. And we CAN’T EVEN WAIT. Prepping for the Golf Marathon of Hope means it’s time for summer. Bring it on.
- KIDS. There are more than 60 kids living at Mel Trotter Ministries, and several of them will be at our annual Golf Marathon of Hope this summer. They’ll come for lunch and stay for the bounce house. They’ll mix with Sparty and mingle with Griff. They’ll putt, chip, drive, and have a BLAST. Many of them are already looking forward to spending the day with you. But they have no idea your participation – or the participation of another 200+ golfers – will help them and their parents find more permanent housing, secure better jobs, and build brighter futures.
- GOLF! Enough said? Let us grab our clubs. Let us gather our friends. A day at Railside Golf Club is quite welcome. The competition is good, the camaraderie even better. Eager to see so many of our supporters in one place playing a game we love.
But most importantly, COMPASSION DEMONSTRATED. The folks that participate in our annual golf outing – you – have a heart for the lonely and the marginalized, the hungry, the homeless, and the hurting. Your desire to end homelessness in Grand Rapids is as great as ours, so you show up – year after year after year – to support the work we do to demonstrate the compassion of Jesus Christ to the hungry, homeless, and hurting within the Greater Grand Rapids area. And hopefully you have a little fun while doing it!
