A Letter from the Interim Executive Director

LAUP Partners,

First of all, my hope is that all of you have kept safe and healthy during these unusual times dealing with COVID-19.  As a non-profit it has been very difficult not being able to hold some of our major fundraising events that are critical for keeping the lights on while we provide the necessary programs and assistance to the greater Latino community.

With that said, we are looking to move forward with our annual golf outing dated for Wednesday, August 5 at Macatawa Golf Club.  With much discussion the board of directors felt that under the current guidelines for gatherings, and that most of the time at this event is spent outdoors, we could make this a very safe experience while maintaining social distancing when we gather for lunch at the end.

Macatawa Golf Club’s banquet room upstairs at 50% capacity can hold 170 people which is much more than is needed for our event.  The max we could have for teams is 30 with 4 per team making that a total of 120 people that would be nicely spaced out for lunch.  Currently the allowance for gatherings is 100 or less so we are opening this up to the first 22 teams max for 88 players and up to 12 volunteers to make 100.  Should that number change before then and we have time to respond accordingly, we will. Macatawa also will have servers with gloves and masks on ready to fill your plate as you go up to the food line while being spaced accordingly as well.

If this sounds acceptable to you and you are looking to support a great organization like LAUP then go to www.birdease.com/laupgolf20 to learn more and get registered to bring a team and/or sponsor in one capactiy or another. 

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns at ed.amaya@kenowa.com and I will do my best to answer them. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Ed Amaya 

Interim Executive Director – LAUP
