Whaley Children’s Center to host 35th annual Whaley Golf Classic

GRAND BLANC — Whaley Children’s Center (WCC) will host the 35th annual Whaley Golf Classic presented by Client Financial Services on Aug. 31, at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club.

George Blaha, voice of the Detroit Pistons and longtime Whaley supporter will return this year to host the event.

In an effort to assure a safer experience for all participants due to Covid-19, necessary changes have been made to the event this year including staggering tee times and health screenings upon arrival.

With many fundraisers and events either postponed or cancelled this year, this event will help bridge the gap between state funding and the children’s needs. All proceeds from the Whaley Golf Classic will benefit the 42 kids living at WCC.

Golfers will enjoy a round of golf at Warwick Hills, multiple games and activities on the course, and a silent auction. The silent auction will be open to everyone and can be accessed at whaleygolf2020.ggo.bid. It will open on Aug. 28 at 5 p.m and close on Aug. 31 at 6 p.m.

“This year’s event may look a little different, but we are sure that it will still be an amazing day for everyone. We can’t wait to be on the course with our community supporters.” said Mindy Williams, President and CEO of WCC. She continued, “A big thank you to Client Financial Services for all that they do for our Center.”
