LAKE COUNTY -- FiveCAP, Inc. is teeing up for its 16th annual Golf for Warmth event, Friday, Aug, 7 at Manistee National Golf and Resort, in Manistee.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. The event will officially kick off with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.

Golf for Warmth is an 18-hole scramble followed by prizes, raffles and a live auction at approximately 1 p.m. Lunch and cart are included.

Men's, women's and mixed teams are welcome. Registration is $75 per person or $60 for course members, with a portion being donated to FiveCAP's Walk for Warmth funds. Payment may be made the day of event.

The winning team will each get an overnight stay package from the Little River Casino Resort. Participants will also have the chance to win a 2020 Jeep Compass with a hole-in-one on Hole No. 9, sponsored by Watson Country of Ludington/Manistee/Benzie/Rockford.

DTE Energy is providing a large gas grill as the grand raffle prize, which will be drawn at the conclusion of the event (winner need not to be present to win).

The Live Auction will be under the "Big White Tent" with lots of great items to raise funds for the cause.

You don't have to golf, the community is welcome. Masks will be required for this portion of the event and tables spaced for social distancing.

All funds raised are used to support senior citizens and families in Manistee, Mason, Lake and Newaygo counties.

Funds raised by the Walk/Golf for Warmth event will allow FiveCAP to provide a safety net to families in need who are facing an emergency. This safety net is a valuable resource during lapses in state/federal grant programs or when a household does not qualify for other programs.

Each circumstance is evaluated for use of these funds that are set aside specifically to help people that are legitimately in need of assistance and in fear of having their heat shut off during the cold winter months

"It's easy to forget the need for these funds when it's hot outside, however raising funds to have available when people need them is a year-round effort," said FiveCAP Executive Director Mary Trucks.

Manistee National Golf & Resort is located at 4797 US-31 South, in Manistee. Contact the golf shop at (231) 398-0123 to register your team in advance.
