Teams from AutoOwners Insurance, Farm Bureau Insurance, LAFCU, Merrill Lynch, Maner Costerisan, Neogen, Michigan Business Network and Dean Transportation will hit the fairway for the Lansing Promise Celebrity Golf Classic on Tuesday, June 20 at Eagle Eye Golf Course in Bath Township, Michigan.
The event will fund eight Lansing Promise Scholarships, fulfilling the dreams of eight Lansing kids. Each Lansing Promise Scholarship provides tuition assistance for up to 65 credits at Lansing Community College or the equivalent dollar amount toward tuition and fees at Michigan State University or Olivet College.
Local celebrities and champions, including Tico Duckett, Todd Duckett, Andre Hutson, Sheri Jones, Greg Jones and Kevin Miller, will hit the fairway with their respective teams ending the day with an inspiring dinner. Attendees will hear from Lansing Promise leaders and Lansing Promise Scholars to celebrate the work being made possible by the support of the Lansing community.
“Words cannot express our gratitude for the sponsors and celebrities participating in the Lansing Promise Celebrity Golf Classic,” said Justin Sheehan, executive director of the Lansing Promise. “The Lansing Promise ensures that every child living and schooling within the Lansing School District boundaries has access to post-secondary education. With their support and the support of the Greater Lansing community, we’re raising up the next generation of kids.”
