May 15, 2017 – 27th ANNUAL GOLF OUTING

Our 27th Annual Golf Outing is in the books and it was a major success! Sunshine and blue skies – it was a perfect day.  We welcomed 260 golfers for a day of fun, camaraderie and golf. We followed up the golfing with a silent auction and banquet. As a result, we raised more than $65,000 to benefit the youth in our community! 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kalamazoo offers all programs and activities free of charge to school-age youth in Kalamazoo. Without our supporters, this wouldn’t be possible!

We would like to extend a huge thanks to:
