The 25th Annual MGA Golf Classic was a great success thanks to the hard work and dedication of our Golf Chairman, Dick Giba, our two volunteers, George Kingston and Gary D’Alessandro, and the entire MGA staff!!!! MGA appreciates all the companies and members who donated money, donated gift cards, and purchased raffle tickets.
The event was held on Friday, June 1, 2018, at Cherry Creek Golf Club in Shelby Township. The weather on golf day was just great – mostly sunny and mild. The rain held off until we were all seated for dinner. All the golfers had a great time, along with the volunteers. Winners of the major raffle were:
