Megan's Dreams Golf Outing Returns to Dearborn
The fundraiser for the Dearborn Animal Shelter an veterinary students takes place June 8.
Helping to fulfill the dreams of Megan Darr-Soroka, a popular manager at Cheli’s Chili Bar in Detroit, the Megan's Dreams Golf Outing will return to Dearborn on Friday, June 8.
The fundraiser contributes to an endowment fund for Michigan State University veterinary students and the Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter.
Celebrating her life and passion for animals and those who care for them, the Megan's Dreams Golf Outing honors Darr-Soroka, who was murdered in 2007.
“Collaboration between two nonprofits is key to Megan’s Dreams,” shares Friends Development Director Kelle Sisung. “We’ve come together to create a truly unique outing that stands apart from the rest.”
Former Detroit Red Wing Chris Chelios will serve as the honorary co-chair of the event.
Chelios provided one of the many unique auction items: a tour for four people of the Red Wings locker room and the opportunity to attend a morning skate at Joe Louis Arena. Golfers will have a chance to bid on this once-in-a-lifetime package throughout the day on the course.
