Stanley Cup referee to host golf benefit for transplant kids
July 7 golf outing to raise funds for Camp Michitanki; Registration now open
Ann Arbor, Mich. – On Monday, July 7 NHL Stanley Cup referee Dan O’Halloran will trade in his skates for a set of golf clubs as the Master of Ceremonies for the Camp Michitanki Golf Classic at the Polo Fields Golf and Country Club in Ann Arbor. O’Halloran’s son, who is a liver transplant recipient, was a camper and is now a counselor at Camp Michitanki.
The golf event will help raise funds for Camp Michitanki (Michigan Transplant Kids), the University of Michigan Transplant Center’s summer camp for children who have received organ transplants. Camp Michitanki is open to children who have received transplants at any hospital. This summer, Camp Michitanki expects to host about 100 kids.
The Camp Michitanki Golf Classic is a four person scramble with prizes for the top team and many on-course contests. The event begins with registration at 10 a.m. followed by a lunch and an open driving range before the 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. At 5 p.m., a silent auction will begin, followed by a live auction and dinner. Auction items include autographed NHL jerseys, framed works of art, a private jet getaway, golf equipment and more.
