All Fore a Great Cause!
MAF 2023 Golf Outing
Raises Over $22,000


Another successful annual MAF Fore a Great Cause Golf Outing is in the books! The 2023 event, which took place Monday, May 22, at Plum Hollow Country Club in Southfield, raised $22,277. A total of 108 golfers participated.

MAF’s annual golf outing fundraiser is a key source of investment and support for the $32,500 a year granted in MAF architecture student scholarships. The event also supports MAF’s architecture-based educational and awareness programs, including K12 programs and Architecture Awareness Grants.

“We had a tremendous event this year,” said MAF Fore a Great Cause golf outing co-chair Brandon Kinsey, Hon. Aff. AIAMI. “Plum Hollow was a great host, and the weather was perfect.  We are very grateful for everyone who volunteered, donated, and participated.  I want to give special recognition to my co-chair Kevin Shultis and the entire golf committee for their time and efforts supporting the event.”

As part of the golf outing, a silent auction of sports tickets and memorabilia, art, and other items raised $6,000; the auction is the first of two annual MAF Auction for Education events (the second takes place at the AIA Michigan/AGC 2023 Midsummer Conference).

In addition, golfers participated in a number of friendly competitions; 2023 winners include:

  • Front 9: Craig Thompson, Mike Lloyd, Carina Krantz, Jaime Piercy
  • Back 9: Romano Curti, Mike Neville, Gene Gardella, Gordy McPhail
  • Women’s Team: Kathleen Cetlinski, Michelle Saroki, Catherine DeDecker, Rae Dumke
  • Closest to the pin: Dave Larson, John Matuska
