The West Michigan Sports Commission hosts their annual dinner on Wednesday, June 30th from 5:00PM to 9:00PM at DeVos Place.
Join us for An Evening with Jack Nicklaus - as we enjoy Jack's stories over dinner and have a live auction all to raise money for charity. Proceeds go to the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation, American Dunes (a Folds of Honor golf course), and the West Michigan Sports Commission.
Jack Nicklaus, the champion, the course designer, the philanthropist, and the good-will ambassador - no single person has changed the face of golf more than him. Jack's competitive career spanned six decades, and his legend has been built with 120 professional tournament victories worldwide and a record 18 professional major-championship titles (six Masters, five PGA Championships, four U.S. Opens, three British Opens). Nicknamed, the Golden Bear, he has also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Congressional Gold Medal, and the Lincoln Medal in addition to a plethora of additional honors, titles, and awards.
Jack and his wife Barbara have a long history of involvement in numerous charitable activities, from junior golf to children's hospitals to several scholarship foundations, raising well over $100 million dollars through the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation.
