NFL Alumni Detroit Charity Golf Classic Coming to Wabeek Country Club
The NFL Alumni Association Detroit Chapter’s 44th Annual Charity Golf Classic will be played June 26 at Wabeek Country Club in Bloomfield Township. The event benefits Detroit area student scholarships.
Presented by Exchange Bar and Grill in Northville, the NFL Alumni Chapter of Detroit invites the community to participate in the 10 a.m. shotgun start preceded by an 8 a.m. breakfast.
“This event is not only fun, but it is critical to help student-athletes reach their athletic and academic potential,” says Pete Chryplewicz, president of the chapter and chair of the Golf Classic. “This event impacts our community, and we are proud to bring it back again this year.”
The NFL Alumni Association supports the community through a variety of initiatives, but the Super Bowl of Golf is the nonprofit organization’s cornerstone event. In addition, thanks to the generosity of previous supporters, more than 30 high school student-athletes from Wayne County have been given scholarships since 2012.
This year, NFL Alumni Association Detroit Chapter honors Alumni of the Year Mike Martin. A University of Michigan graduate, Martin entered the NFL as an 82nd overall draft pick in the 2012 Draft.
The Golf Classic also is a qualifier for the 2024 NFL Alumni Super Bowl of Golf, a national event that features a three-day trip.
