Side-by-side Golf Outing

Side-by-Side Golf Outing Logo


Thank you so much to all of the golfers, volunteers and sponsors who helped to support Mercy Education Project (MEP) through their generous donation of time, effort and sportsmanship at our 25th Anniversary Side by Side Golf Outing on July 17, 2017. We are so happy everyone could join us and appreciate the continued support of our mission to help provide a doorway to a brighter future for at-risk girls and disadvantaged women in Detroit.


This year’s Side-by-Side event brought together more than 170 golfers, dinner guests and volunteers who enjoyed a perfectly gorgeous day on the greens with lots of games, an engaging dinner program with our vibrant host Lila Lazarus, and an inspiring celebration of Sister Charlotte Young in honor of her dedicated leadership of the Side by Side committee from day one! The evening was capped off by awards and a fabulous raffle – all to benefit the good work started in Detroit by the Sisters of Mercy in 1992.  Thank you for the critical role you played in making this a successful golf outing.
