The Ted Lindsay Foundation has announced that the 13th Annual Ted Lindsay Foundation Celebrity Golf Outing will be held on Monday, Sept. 9, at the Wabeek Country Club (4000 Clubgate Dr.) in Bloomfield Hills.
Interested participants can register their teams by visiting www.tedlindsay.com or calling 248-457-1400.
The celebrity golf outing, presented by Wells Fargo and Kroger, serves as the fundraising cornerstone for the foundation’s fight to find a cure for Autism. Last year’s event resulted in $200,000 to fund research, raise awareness, and support children and their families affected by Autism. Mickey Redmond will serve as event host, alongside foundation co-founder, Ted Lindsay.
“Autism affects 1 in 88 children in the United States and the Ted Lindsay Foundation is committed to raising awareness and funds to help find a cure,” said Ted Lindsay, CEO of the Ted Lindsay Foundation. “Since the inception of the foundation in 2001, we’ve raised more than $2 million dollars to support Autism research and we couldn’t have done it without the help of generous community members; we look forward to another successful celebrity golf outing.”
Participants will have the chance to golf 18 holes alongside local celebrities, since each four-person tournament team will include one celebrity member. This year’s celebrity golfers include current and former Red Wings players, Henrik Zetterberg, Niklas Kronwall, Mike Babcock . Additionally, the event will feature dinner with raffles, a silent auction and an awards ceremony. Each attendee will also receive a special “thank you” gift for participating, such as a signed memorabilia, golf swag or equipment and/or a branded foundation bag.
