3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament Benefits Carter’s Kids (Aug 9 - Grand Traverse Resort & Spa)

HGTV star and Traverse City native/resident Carter Oosterhouse has made it his personal mission to encourage kids to get out of the house and out to play while, at the same time addressing the serious issue of childhood obesity.

Carter’s Kids was established in 2008 to facilitate the building of community playgrounds to do just that – get kids to play and to bring families together. To date, nearly 20 community-built playgrounds have been open around the country (including three in Michigan) – with dozens more in the works.

One major fundraiser is held in Michigan each year to raise monies and awareness for Carter’s Kids:– the 3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, August 9 at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa in Acme, just north of Traverse City.

The cost is $200 per golfer/$800 per foursome and includes 18 holes of golf on the Jack Nicklaus designed golf course, The Bear – rated the #1 golf course in Michigan in 2012, followed by dinner, an awards ceremony and live entertainment. Additional dinner guests pay just $50 for the evening activities. Sponsorship opportunities range from $1,000 to $25,000.

Registration for teams, sponsors and silent auction donations is open now at
