On June 30, 2016, The 100 Black Men of Greater Detroit hosted its First Annual Golf and Networking Outing. The purpose of the outing was to expose the community to our programs and the mission of the organization; network with individuals that have a passion for their community and want to share ideas on how to make a positive impact on our youth; and just enjoy the game of golf!
We had approximately 50 participants at the outing and luncheon. Ramone Crowe, Committee Chair, performed the welcome to the attendees and the introduction of Bill Luse, our chapter president. Bill, delivered a wonderful overview of our programs and talked about the impact the 100 Black Men of Greater Detroit is making in our community. We pinned 2 new members at the luncheon and met potential new ones. Prizes were awarded for: longest drive, closest to the pin and overall best team score for ladies and men.
Our first event was a success due to the commitment of the golf committee members, Mark Elzy, Dennis Williams, Antoine Jackson and the leadership of Ramone Crowe, our committee chair. We would like to give special thanks to our sponsors, Comerica Bank, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Engineered Buildings, Inc.
We have begun planning our 2017 100 Black Men of Greater Detroit Golf Outing. Look for additional information in the coming months.
