The 13th Annual Bernie Smilovitz Hunger Free Summer Golf Classic teed off on the hot and sunny afternoon of July 25, 2016 at the Detroit Golf Club. Gleaners was joined by 33 local celebrities and over 220 golfers. A special thank you to Andiamo Restaurant Group, the presenting sponsor of the outing since 2014, for their hard work in planning, fundraising, and donations for the live auction.
Notable live auction items included tickets to see a taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show in Burbank, California; rounds of golf with Al Kaline and Rhonda Walker, and a private dinner for 10 at Andiamo with wine pairings from Joe Vicari’s private cellar.
Thanks to the support of our Hunger Free Summer match sponsor Citizens Bank, Andiamo and other sponsors including American Specialty Oils, Sterling Insurance Group, CIG Capital Advisors, HRPro/BenePro, and Wolverine Packing we have raised over 1 million meals for hungry children in our community.
