Wayne Law 2015 Golf Outing
June 8 2015 at 11:00 AM
Country Club of Detroit
On behalf of Wayne State University, Wayne State Law School, the faculty, the staff, the students, and more than 11,000 alumni, we invite you to play in the 2015 Wayne Law Golf Outing. This event, which was held in a collegial manner throughout Metro Detroit for more than 15 years, was restored last year and charged with two significant tasks: bring together alumni and friends of the Law School, and fund an endowed scholarship to retain the best and brightest students. This golf outing, held this year at the impressive Country Club of Detroit, is an opportunity for our alums to reconnect to the Law School, see some old classmates, enjoy a day of fantastic golf on an immaculate course, and raise endowed scholarship dollars to benefit their alma mater. This opportunity to have good fun, while doing good works, is a combination we are proud to be a part of. The Wayne Law Golf Outing Details: Monday, June 8th, 2015 Country Club of Detroit - 220 Country Club Drive, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI 48236 Registration 11:00, 12:00 Lunch, 1:00 shotgun start Scramble format – foursomes Games on the course, mulligans, tee shot help from Wayne State golf team Cocktail reception and food immediately following play, including presentation of scholarship to awardee, golfer awards, and update from the Dean. We hope that you will consider a tax deductible sponsorship to pay for your foursome of golf. It is the main source of funding the endowed scholarship and a great way to put your name or your company’s name in front of 100 or more of the best attorneys and legal specialists in Michigan. There are many levels of support to choose from, and each will significantly impact the lives of current and future Wayne Law Students.
