REED CITY – On Wednesday, community members will come together to support WISE at the organization’s annual golf outing.

“We generally have a good turnout – we had 100 people show up to golf last year,” said Tessa McNally, administrative assistant at WISE.  “It’s a lot of fun. We get to see a lot of the same faces, but each year we usually have four or five new groups register to play, which is always great to see.”

The event takes place on Wednesday, July 23, at the Spring Valley Golf Course. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with a shotgun start taking place at 9:30 a.m. The cost to play per golfer is $70 and the deadline to register is at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 22.

Registration forms can be found at WISE’s website, wiseagainstviolence.org/about. All proceeds from the event benefit WISE, which has recently suffered some cuts in funding.

“All the money from the outing will go straight into WISE to make up for the difference we lost because of these budget cuts,” McNally said.

Teams of four, which McNally said people usually have organized when they sign up to golf, will play at the course throughout the day. Spring Valley will offer a lunch and then a steak dinner at the conclusion of the outing, which will wrap up at 5 p.m.

McNally said the outing has attracted several local politicians, who will golf and also act as sponsors.

“This year is election year, so people who come to the outing will see people they might be voting for supporting WISE,” McNally said.

The outing will once again bring together WISE’s supporters.

“You see people getting to know each other while golfing, or during the meals. They’re talking about WISE or how well they played,” McNally said. “I like to see everyone enjoying themselves while supporting a good cause.”
