SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich.—The 29th annual Lake State Classic golf outing is set to take place this weekend (June 28-29) at Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Mich.
Organized by the LSSU Foundation, the golf outing, in conjunction with an online auction, helps support both academic and athletic program at Lake Superior State.
The online pre-bidding auction is open to the public and will be open until 11:00 p.m., Wednesday, June 27. Items up for auction include: four VIP tickets to a Detroit Pistons game, two tickets to a Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Toronto or Detroit game, a Doug Weight Lakers jersey, an autographed Dylan Larkin Red Wings hockey stick and jersey, a signed Stanley Johnson Detroit Pistons jersey, a Tiffany & Co. necklace, vacation packages, and much more.
Top bids from the online pre-bidding will be carried over to the live, silent auction on Thursday, June 28 at the 'Classic Bash' social in the Oak Room at Treetops Resort from 7:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. In addition to the silent auction, guests will have an opportunity to meet LSSU President Dr. Rodney Hanley and LSSU Director of Athletic, Dr. David Paitson.
"We hope that friends and alumni of Lake State feel welcomed to come and meet Dr. Hanley on Thursday night," said Esther Proulx, development coordinator for the LSSU Foundation. "It's been great for me to work on this event for the first time and interact with some of our loyal donors. There is still time for golfers to register for the Classic."
The four-person scramble begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 29 on the "Fazio Premier" course. There will be a series of special events on the course throughout the day. The Classic Grillin' & Chillin' BBQ will wrap up the day's events.
