Slots still available for Five CAP’s Golf for Warmth Friday.

FILER TOWNSHIP (Manistee County) — FiveCAP, Inc. is teeing up for its 15th annual Golf for Warmth event, being held this Friday, Aug. 2 at Manistee National Golf & Resort. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and the event will officially kick off with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. 

Funds raised by Golf for Warmth and an additional event, Walk for Warmth, allow FiveCAP to provide a safety net to families in need that are facing an emergency. This safety net is a valuable resource during lapses in state/federal grant programs or when a household barely does not qualify for other programs. Each circumstance is evaluated for use of these funds that are set aside specifically to help these people that are legitimately in need of assistance and in fear of having their heat shut off during the cold winter months. 

Golf for Warmth is an 18-hole scramble followed by prizes, raffles and a live auction at approximately 1 p.m. Lunch and cart are included. The live auction is held under the “Big White Tent” with lots of great items to raise funds for the cause. Non-golfers are welcome to the auction. All of the money raised is used to support senior citizens and families in Manistee, Mason, Lake and Newaygo counties.

“It’s easy to forget the need for these funds when it’s hot outside, however raising funds to have available when people need them is a year-round effort,” said FiveCAP Executive Director Mary Trucks.

The winning team will each get an overnight stay package from the Little River Casino Resort. Participants will also have the chance to win a 2019 Jeep Renegade with a hole-in-one on Hole #9, sponsored by Watson Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram of Ludington/Manistee/Benzie. DTE Energy has donated a large gas grill as the grand raffle prize which will be drawn at the conclusion of the event (do not need to be present to win). 

Manistee National Golf & Resort is located at 4797 S. US-31. Contact the golf shop at 231-398-0123 to register your team in advance. Payment the day of event. Men’s, women’s and mixed teams are welcome. Registration is $75 per person or $60 for course members, with a portion being donated to FiveCAP’s Walk for Warmth funds.
