Side-by-Side Golf Outing Celebrates 22nd Year


On Monday, July 20th Mercy Education Project (MEP) hosted the 22nd Annual Side-by-Side Golf Outing at Walnut Creek Country Club in South Lyon. One hundred and sixty eight golfers enjoyed 18 holes of golf followed by a sumptuous banquet dinner and auction with all proceeds benefitting Mercy Education Project.  The event was one of the largest and most successful outings for MEP, netting more than $80,000 to help serve the educational needs of women and girls in Detroit.

Mercy Education Project would like to thank all the sponsors including presenting sponsors Towers Watson and Transamerica and host sponsors Bank of America / Merrill Lynch, Cerner, Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, NEPC and Strategic Staffing Solutions.  MEP would also like to thank all of the volunteers, including employees from Trinity Health, Lear Corporation, DTE and Strategic Staffing Solutions that donated their time to help the games, golfers, auction and dinner run smoothly.

We hope to see you next year at our 23rd Annual Side-by-Side Golf Outing on Monday, July 18th, 2016 at Walnut Creek Country Club in South Lyon.

"Education is an opportunity and can be transformational for our most vulnerable communities; especially those, like us, working tirelessly in search of the American Dream. Programs like Mercy Education Project have successfully removed those barriers for many and have educated our women and girls and is transforming their lives."

"….Literacy is a fundamental right and an essential building block for a productive life. Increasing adult literacy also ensures more parents can be engaged in their children’s education, ,making this a cause  critical to helping families break the cycle of poverty. Thank you to Mercy Education Project for their tireless efforts to ensure everyone has an opportunity to learn to read. Together, I know we are making a difference.”
