Spreading the Love on Giving Tuesday

November 30, 2016

More Than A Game: The 2016 Lake Trust Foundation Golf Classic

July 01, 2016

 

On a sunny day in late June, 136 people gathered at Oak Pointe Country Club excited for the upcoming round of golf. Old friends shared stories from the last year of their lives and some new faces joined in on the conversations.

The golfers had a bigger purpose that day: To show that they believed in the mission of the Lake Trust Foundation.

But his plans to help veterans don't end there.

Putting for a Cause at the Lake Trust Foundation Golf Outing

July 03, 2015

 

Amidst the picturesque landscape of the Oak Pointe Country Club come the sounds of metal hitting plastic and the laughter of teammates jabbing each other on their game. Though these aren't uncommon sounds from a golf course, the golfers here today aren't just playing around. Among the shiny clubs and wooden pegs lies a shared passion and purpose: To bring financial education opportunities to adults across Michigan.
