BATTLE CREEK, MI – The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi (NHBP) will host the Chief Moguago Golf Against Domestic Violence, a golf outing that will take place on Friday, June 2, at Binder Park Golf Course in Battle Creek, MI.
The event addresses an urgent crisis – American Indian and Alaska Native women experience extremely high levels of violence, with nearly 84 percent experiencing violence in their lifetimes. The funds raised will support two vital organizations: the NHBP Tribal Court Victims Service Program, which works to provide traditional, culturally honoring care, practices and programs to promote the long-term healing of victims; and the Uniting Three Fires Against Violence, which supports all Michigan tribes in promoting the social change necessary to address the disproportionate rates of violence impacting their communities.
Golf lovers and good samaritans alike are encouraged to create a team and join for a day of food, friendly competition, and an opportunity to give back to the two organizations, which are dedicated to providing services, programs and resources to empower and transform the lives of victims of domestic violence.
The four-person team scramble event will begin with registration at 7:30am, followed by an opening ceremony at 8:45am with a shotgun start at 9:00am. Throughout the day, participants can enjoy food prepared by the event’s title sponsor, FireKeepers Casino Hotel, ultimately ending with a dinner celebration, complete with awards and a raffle.
