The supporters of St. Louis Center were busy once again during the week of June 20th, as back-to-back fundraising events took place in Ann Arbor, MI in support of their residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The first event was the annual Golf & Glory Outing, which celebrated its 22nd year this year, and was held at the University of Michigan Golf Course. One hundred-forty golfers filled the course, with many teams receiving the privilege of playing golf with a famous sports celebrity thanks to the work of former Detroit Lion Tom Nowatzke who is a member of the organizing committee. Along with important sponsor recognition, former Detroit Lion’s great Mike Lucci received the John Panelli Celebrity Award and Ron and Rosie Emrick, of Emrick Investment Group of Wells Fargo Advisors received the Bill Wagner Pioneer Award. Mrs. Diane Buckley of Jackson was also the winner of the Alaskan Cruise Raffle at the end of the event.
The following Tuesday night brought out 50 supporters to Paesano’s Restaurant in Ann Arbor, where owners Mike and Bridget Roddy provided a beautiful Sicilian themed dinner in honor of Rev. Dr. William J. Turner, Pastor of St. Mary Parish in Chelsea. Fr. Bill was honored for his years of support for St. Louis Center and the Servants of Charity during the time that he has been pastor of the local parish in Chelsea.
