MSI Express Joins Forces at the 26th Annual Glenwood Academy Golf Outing, Surpassing Fundraising Goal
MSI Express teed off for a charitable cause at the 26th Annual Glenwood Academy Golf Outing, which unfolded on Monday, July 31st, at the scenic Sandcreek Country Club. The event, a highlight in MSI Express' community engagement calendar, drew a turnout of over 140 golfers from Virginia, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, California, Iowa, Texas, Michigan, Maryland, and even Toronto, Canada.
The day was marked not only by (attempted) golfing prowess but also by entertainment, with the charismatic trick shot celebrity, Dave Skrodski, wowing the crowd with his skills. However, the real star of the show was the overwhelming generosity of the participants and sponsors, as the Glenwood Academy Golf Outing surpassed its initial goal. While aiming to raise $100,000 for scholarships and cottage renovation, the event amassed over $108,000 in actual donations. This achievement is a testament to the power of Glenwood Academy’s mission and the commitment of MSI Express to making a positive impact.
