2017 Golf Outing Wrap Up

We enjoyed another fun and successful WMAHU Golf Outing this year!  The weather cooperated and it was a great day to play golf.  This was the 31st Annual Outing and I’m happy to report, our most successful golf outing to date! This event is a day for the people in our industry to come together to have fun, play golf and support our association and the chosen charity, CASA. We raised over $20,000 to run our chapter and make a donation to CASA.   The West Michigan chapter is truly special and we are very thankful the support of our members.

I also want to give a big thank you to all of our sponsors!  Each sponsor makes a difference and this outing would not happen without each of them.  As the golf chairperson, being able to count on our two major sponsors, BCBS of MI our Main/Lunch Sponsor and Priority Health as our Double Eagle sponsor, year in and year out is vital to our success and is very much appreciated. Our Eagle Sponsors: Varipro, Delta Dental and MI Chamber/VSP, Birdie Sponsors: Benefit Profiles/Kansas City Life, Grotenhuis, SecureOne, Ulliance, Answer Health on Demand, Wright Insurance Group, United Healthcare, Aflac, BCBSM Specialty Benefits/Grotenhuis, SBAM, EyeMed, and MichBusiness, and our Par Sponsors: Assist America, Companion Life, MetLife, ASR, Basic, Guardian Life Insurance, Lincoln Financial Group, Mich Business, Mutual of Omaha, Ameritas, MDA, Insurance, Priority Health, and The Standard. The golf outing is one of two major fundraisers for our association and without your sponsorships, our association would not be one of the very best in the country! 

The golf committee is comprised of some of the best in the business and they deserve the credit for making the outing run smooth and successful. Thank you Dominic Siciliano, Ryan Pylman, Tammy Healey, Drew VanDyk and Lena Jaroudi for your time and dedication!

And last but not least, thank you to every one of you who participated in the outing from the players to the volunteers! The money we raised for CASA will help ensure more children that have been abused or neglected, has a champion stand up for their best interest.

 It was my honor to be the chairperson for the 2017 WMAHU Golf Outing this year and I’m already looking forward to next year.  Please contact me directly if you’d like to get involved.  You won’t regret it!
