Sunny skies and perfect temperatures led to a great turnout for the 20th Annual Passage Golf Scramble, themed “Superstitions” in honor of its Friday the 13th date. Frederic Golf Course was a busy place as 27 teams readied for the Noon shotgun start. The event was a huge success with dozens of community members and organizations stepping up to raise over $14,000 to support Northwest Passage’s Alumni Award Fund. Northwest Passage has been dedicated to restoring hope through innovative mental health services for children and families for over 40 years. The money raised will be used to support both current and past residents who demonstrate success on their road to recovery.

Teams enjoyed a delicious meal as they listened to Northwest Passage Alumni speaker, Sadaf, explain how her time at Northwest Passage has shaped her future. Sadaf was the recipient of a camera through the Alumni Award Fund and was later chosen to be part of an alumni photography trip to Dry Tortugas National Park in Florida. Sadaf earned a second alumni award to help with tuition expenses and is currently attending Marquette University. Sadaf spent the summer as an underwater photography intern at Northwest Passage, bringing her journey full circle. She expressed gratitude to everyone who came out to support kids, like her, as they work to improve their futures.
The day ended with dozens of valuable prizes, including a big-screen TV, golf equipment, a trolling motor, an ECHO Trimmer, Adirondack chairs, a weekend stay & play package, and much more being awarded to lucky raffle winners. Northwest Passage would like to thank their many sponsors and prize donors for contributing to the success of the 20th Annual Passage Scramble.
