Farmington Hills,  Mich. —July 24, 2020— Options abound for golfers this year as Judson Center, a multi-county human service agency, offers avid players and armchair participants two ways to support the nonprofit organization.

In collaboration with Becker College eSports program, Judson Center presents the inaugural eGolf Challenge on Monday, August 17. Tickets can be purchased for $75 at www.judsoncenter.org/events/corporate-golf-challenge by Monday, August 10.  The ticket includes entry into the virtual tournament with a chance to win a $150 Visa gift card.

“Judson Center is excited to partner with Becker College, which is nationally recognized for its game design program,  to enhance our annual golf event with a fun and engaging virtual experience for golfers and non-golfers to participate and show their support,” said Judson Center CEO and President Lenora Hardy-Foster. “This is a very challenging time for the non-profit community and Judson Center needs not only continued support from our longstanding partners, but an additional network of individuals and corporations who are inspired by the work we’ve done with children and families since 1924.”

Here’s how the Judson Center eGolf Challenge works:

  • Download the WGT Golf App to your phone
  • Login and set up your personalized Avatar
  • Once your reservation is received, you will receive a YouTube instructional video explaining how to join the Judson Center Golf Club
  • The Judson Center eGolf Challenge launches on Monday, August 17; you will have 48 hours to complete play (generally will not take more than 30-45 minutes)
  • When the tournament concludes, a leaderboard will be displayed and the first place winner will be contacted to receive their prize

“Becker College is honored to support the Judson Center—an organization that resonates with the College’s mission and core values,” said Alan Ritacco, Ph.D., AVP Academic Affairs and Dean of the School of Design & Technology.

For those looking for a more conventional golf outing, the annual Judson Center Corporate Golf Challenge will take place on Monday, August 24, at the Birmingham Country Club, 1750 Saxon Drive. Presented by Ruby+Associates, Inc. and Barton Malow, the event this year will let golfers “physically come together while staying 6-feet apart;” Judson Center is taking the necessary precautions to ensure that social distancing is being observed and CDC safety protocols are followed.  Additional sponsors include Bank of Ann Arbor–Birmingham, Giarmarco, Mullins & Horton, P.C., Mike Savoie Chevrolet, PwC, Supply Line International, Superior Electric, and TCF.

Judson Center programming includes autism, foster care and adoption in tandem with its affiliate, Child Safe Michigan, employment services for persons with disabilities, integrated primary healthcare for all ages through Judson Center Family Health, and behavioral health services as a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC).

Sponsorships for the Corporate Golf Challenge – including the mask sponsorship at $5,000 – are still available.  For questions on either of the events, please contact Katie Groves at 248-554-6435 or at katie_groves@judsoncenter.org.
