Golf outing to raise funds for Fish & Loaves

TAYLOR – Openings are still available in the seventh annual golf outing to support the Fish & Loaves Community Food Pantry Sept. 12 at Taylor Meadows Golf Club, 25360 Ecorse Road.

The golf outing provides funding for the pantry, which supplies food for needy and hungry families and individuals in Taylor, Allen Park, Dearborn Heights, Southgate, Brownstown Township, Romulus and Woodhaven.

Admission is $80 per golfer. All proceeds will go to the food pantry, whose mission is to make sure that no one goes hungry and that those in need are served with the dignity they deserve.

Check-in begins at 8 a.m. A shotgun start is set for 9 a.m. Golfers will receive coffee and a continental breakfast, 18 holes of golf with the use of a cart, lunch at the turn, dinner and two hours of bar service.

There will be prizes for the winning team, closest to the pin and closest to the line.

Volunteers at the non-profit, faith-based, non-sectarian organization say the number of people in need grows every month while the cost of food also escalates, increasing expenses for the pantry. An estimated 2.1 million pounds of food is distributed annually at the pantry, 25670 Northline Road in Taylor.

Sponsorships also are available and donations are always accepted.
