Each year, First Tee of Benton Harbor holds several premier fundraising and community events to help us serve our ever-growing number of participants & reach. These events are only made possible because of the generosity of our partners, who help us to make each event a rousing success. We publicize all of our events throughout Southwest, Michigan.
Our fundraising events are designed for our supporters, both individual and corporate. They are a great way for all individuals to learn more about us while having fun. They also provide a wonderful opportunity for corporations to sponsor our youth programs while possibly entertaining customers.
