Back in February, Heritage Broadcasting’s WWTV/WWUP-TV (Cadillac) and Midwestern Broadcasting’s WTCM (Traverse City) partnered to put on the first-ever Traverse City Golf Expo. This both celebrated one of Northern Michigan’s favorite summer sports and raised money for local charities. The totals were just announced and four different non-profits will each receive $1,652.50 thanks to the fundraising event.
The “Charity Row” non-profits that have received the funds include Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan, Veterans in Crisis, The First Tee Northern Michigan and the Traverse City Junior Golf Association. Charity Row is sponsored by Bear Lake Golf Resort. These are charities that raise funds throughout the year at golf outings.
