Golf Outing organizers urged to be aware
LAPEER — VIEW Newspapers is urging all golf outing organizers and potential sponsors to use caution when approached by outside sponsorship solicitors. We were contacted this week by Fairway Sponsors related to the upcoming Lapeer East Football Golf Outing. Thinking something sounded fishy, The County Press contacted members of Lapeer East Football Alumni Association who told us that Fairway Sponsors in no way represents the alumni association, the school or the football program. Members of the Alumni Association personally handle all sponsorship arrangements. The County Press asks that anyone contacted by Fairway Sponsors or other organizations that seem suspicious to notify the paper at 810-664-0811. — L.P.
