Golf outing to raise scholarship funds in memory of Rick Chapman.

HAMLIN TOWNSHIP — The Rick Chapman Legacy Golf Outing, which is sponsored in part by Safe Harbor Credit Union, will take place Aug. 14 at Hemlock Golf Club. The event will honor Rick Chapman, who died on July 19, 2020 at the age of 56. Chapman owned Chuck Wagon Pizza in Ludington, which he purchased from the Donovan family in 1983 when he was 20-years-old.

Proceeds from the outing will fund scholarships and grants for young entrepreneurs looking to start or purchase a business here in Mason County.

The outing will feature four-player teams with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m.  After play there’ll be a luncheon on site with live music, prizes, raffles and fun celebrating Chapman’s memory.

Registration — as well as sponsorship and donation information — is online at here.

“Rick was a great friend, a great father and husband, but under all that he was also a great businessman for the Ludington community,” said Ben Harmon, one of the outing’s organizers and a lifelong friend of Chapman’s. “Rick was also extremely generous and we know he’d love the idea of celebrating his memory by helping another generation of ambitious young entrepreneurs. We’d love to see this become an annual event that can keep contributing to Ludington’s business community. Rick truly loved this town.”
