Fundraising Events

Our fundraising events are designed for our supporters, both individual and corporate. They are a great way for all individuals to learn more about us while having fun. They also provide a wonderful opportunity for corporations to sponsor our youth programs while possibly entertaining customers.

Each year, First Tee – Benton Harbor holds several premier fundraising and community events to help us serve our ever-growing number of participants & reach. These events are only made possible because of the generosity of our partners, who help us to make each event a rousing success. We publicize all of our events throughout Southwest, Michigan.

First Tee – Benton Harbor Golf Marathon | October 4, 2022 | Lake Michigan Hills Golf Club

Eight golfers came together locally to play up to 100+ holes of golf in a day and in doing so raising money for First Tee – Benton Harbor. Each golfer had their own peer to peer fundraising page leading up to the event and was fundraising on behalf of First Tee – Benton Harbor. Golfers could solicit flat donations to their own individual fundraising pages, or per-hole pledges to be invoiced after the event was completed. Over $25,000 was raised on the day!
