Stonebridge Golf Club in Ann Arbor
Voted No. 8 top courses by Detroit Free Press.
The annual Tee it Up for Freedom Golf Outing presented by Delta Air Lines took place August 7 at Stonebridge Golf Club in Ann Arbor.
While we tend to talk about the golf event and how much money we raised (we’ll get to that), the best part of the day was giving honorable recognition and an ovation to one particular golfer.
Luke L. joined us to play golf and raise money for MI Freedom Center operations, despite the fact he was scheduled to be deployed just two days later as a member of the Michigan Army National Guard. He will be gone for one year, leaving behind a wife and three sons, ages 9 and under, yet he spent the day with us!! Godspeed, Luke.
As for the event, it raised over $23,000 so we must give great thanks to our various ‘Star’ sponsors: the Knights of Columbus Fr. Vincent Capodanno Assembly #3392; the Michigan National Guard; Globe Tech in Plymouth, the Detroit Police Officers Assoc.; Robert and Danny Kamal; plus Grant, Millman and Johnson certified accountants.
We have already picked June 7, 2024, as the next golf outing, to be played at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Macomb Co. preceding the biennial air show at the base, where the USAF Thunderbirds are scheduled to appear.

Beth, a volunteer said: "My family have always been huge military supporters. I have 2 nephews that are currently serving in the Air Force and I know how much they appreciate military lounges wherever they go."
