Support Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels – Sponsor the Judy Fike Golf Outing

We need your help! In your own neighborhood a homebound older adult needs food. You can make a difference by sponsoring the 2014 Judy Fike Golf Outing to benefit Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels. We are asking for your support.

The outing will take place on Monday, July 14, 2014 at Reddeman Farms in Chelsea. Last year, we raised funds to pay for over 4,100 meals! This year, our goal is to have 128 golfers and raise $30,000.

How you can help:

  • We have several opportunities for you to sponsor this event. Our sponsorship levels reflect that every $6 pays for a meal. Click here for the Sponsorship Forms outlining the options and benefits of your contribution.
  • Our golfers would also be delighted with any donated items for our raffle, door prizes, and silent auction. We make sure that all our golfers leave with a door prize!

40thMealsOnWheels_logoWe’re turning 40 this year! Since 1974, Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels has reduced hunger and food insecurity and promoted the dignity and independence of the homebound in our community. Six days a week we deliver nutritiously balanced meals to those who, because of their health, are unable to shop or cook for themselves. We are a community-supported program of the University of Michigan Health System and about half of our revenue comes from external sources. Your sponsorship is crucial to our continuing to feed the homebound.

Please join us to help provide much needed nutrition for our homebound clients.

On behalf of our staff, volunteers and the clients we serve, thank you.

A Lion, Rubber Duckies and Baby Birds…Oh My!

Monday, July 16th dawned bright, sunny and warm. The weather reports all warned of extreme heat and humidity, but that didn’t stop the 128 golfers from arriving at Reddeman Farms in Chelsea, ready to knock out 18 holes in support of Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels!

It also didn’t stop the amazing crew of volunteers and staff from Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels and from Reddeman Farms arriving at dawn to set up the signs, arrange the raffle prizes and to make sure the water was chilling over ice.

Breakfast was perfect. The bagels from Barry Bagel’s in Westgate were still warm from the oven, and then the donuts, smelling of sugary-fried-dough-goodness, were delivered from Washtenaw Dairy. After noshing on these delicious goodies, the golfers quickly made their way out to their carts. The busy volunteers had arranged the goody bags and scorecards on each cart so all the golfers had to do was show up. Sound good so far? (Hint, come out and golf with us next year!)

Judy Fike and Patty McCarthy got things started with a bang. And then they were off! The day couldn’t have been better (ok, it could have been cooler and less humid). Everyone had a great time and enjoyed a beautiful day on a lovely golf course in support of a wonderful organization. This was the fourth year for the event, and over $21,000 dollars was raised, nearly doubling the amount raised in 2011! That translates into 3,500 meals! Great job everyone!

It may be too early to say this (and I may be on an emotional Olympic sport adrenaline rush)…but who thinks we can double that amount in 2013????

Thank you to all of our sponsors and donors! We could not have pulled off such a successful event without your help.
