Golfing for Angels

Angels? Place and Knights of Columbus have teamed up to host a golf outing to benefit Angel’s Place, a non-profit organization that provides long-term care via over 20 homes in three Michigan counties.
The 1st Annual Angel’s Place & Knights of Columbus Golf Outing is Sept. 27th at the White Lake Oaks Golf Course located at 991 Williams Lake Rd in White Lake.
At 8:30 a.m. on the day of the outing, golfers will participate in a shotgun start, four Person Scramble. Tickets are $75 per player and the fee includes 18 Holes of golf on the course with a cart. Prizes will be awarded during the outing to golfers with the longest drive or get closest to the pin. ‘Women and Seniors will play from the forward tees,? said Angel’s Place Event Organizer Paul Maxwell. ?100% of the proceeds, less expenses, will be given to Angels Place.?
A steak dinner will follow the outing at the Clarkston Eagles, 5640 Maybee Rd. in Clarkston. Steak dinner tickets are separate from the outing, and can be purchased at the door for $15 per person.
Throughout the year, Angels’ Place hosts many events to raise money to support the mission including the annual Angel’s Place Race, a popular event held each May in Clarkston.
Angel’s Place began over 20 years ago after AnnMarie Lopez and Loretta Nagle Ryan, both mothers and nurses had a conversation over lunch concerning long term-care of Lopez’s disabled daughter, Charlotte.
After that conversation, the woman set plans in motion to create a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization to help with long-term care for the developmentally disabled.
In 1992 Lopez and Ryan formed Angels? Place, and in 1994 the very first Angel’s Place home opened in West Bloomfield.
Angel’s Place now operates 20 homes throughout Oakland, Wayne and Macomb Counties. Each home provide many services, including permanent housing and support care to individuals with severe developmental disabilities.
According to Angel’s Place, each home operated by the organization offers a Christian and family based environment that encourages personal growth and acceptance. The average commitment to each person involved with the organization is 40-years.
