She unabashedly called her annual golf outing “Tee-Off for TaTas” for half a dozen years. But with the tragic death in April, of cancer survivor, breast cancer advocate and WCXT-FM (Benton Harbor-St. Joseph) on-air personality Denise Bohn, her annual golf outing has been re-branded as the “#DeniseBohnStrong” Golf Outing.
Her friends and family have elected to rename her classic event and become a benefit for the Bohn-Stewart Children Education Fund, to assure that Denise’s three amazing children have the resources to continue their life’s education without fear of being financially strapped going forward. Friends and family have pledged to carry on the “full-court press” that Denise was so well known for in every endeavor she signed on to and are hoping that many will support those efforts by participating with a team of your own, or donations of items for a silent auction, or even just cash towards the cause.
The event is scheduled August 6, 2016 at Indian Lake Hills Golf Club in Eau Claire, beginning at 9 a.m. Online registration is open here until July 29th (or until the event is sold out, if sooner) or in-person at the studios of WCXT/98.3 The Coast, 580 E. Napier Avenue in Benton Harbor, weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For $300 you can register a foursome to play in the tourney or individual players can register for $75. The registration fee includes greens fees and a cart along with a lunch buffet, awards, and prize drawings, and a silent auction following the golf outing at the Farmers Country Club at 5265 Napier Circle in Benton Harbor. Checks should be made out to Bohn-Stewart Education Fund.
On-site registration will begin at 8am at golf course.
If you would like to donate items to the silent auction, or volunteer to help out in any way, please contact Kim Thumm at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 269-932-2868.
The outing is sponsored by 98.3 The Coast, WSJM Sports Radio, Town Crier Wire, JohnsonRauhoff, Walsworth Printing Services, KitchenAid, and LeValley Chevrolet Buick GMC.
