Dick Ember Memorial Golf Classic Raises $22K for Armada Area Schools – The Voice

The late Dick Enberg’s legacy of promoting education lives on in the Armada.

The Armada Education Foundation hosted its annual fundraiser, the Dick Ember Memorial Golf Classic, on July 31 at Timberwood Golf Club in Ray Township. A vacation package donated to a private home in the Harbor Springs area was the top prize in this year’s raffle.

More than $22,000 was raised at this year’s event.

“Community support was again key to the success of this annual round of golf,” said Linda Lyons, Executive Director of AEF.

Proceeds from the golf tour will support applications for teacher grants from Armada Schools, which will provide students in their classrooms with enhanced educational opportunities.

The AEF Board of Trustees has allocated $30,000 for the 2022-2023 school year. Grant recipients and award amounts will be determined at the AEF Board of Trustees meeting in December.

Enberg, a nationally renowned sportscaster and alumnus of the Armada, died in 2017.

On behalf of the AEF Board of Trustees, Lyons expressed “heartfelt thanks to Obry Brick and Landscape, our double eagle sponsor for the past four years, and the many other sponsors, award donors, golfers and volunteers who made this year’s event a success. ”

Plans are already underway for next year’s Dick Eenberg Memorial Golf Classic, which will take place on July 30, 2023, at Timberwood Golf Club.
