2016 OHM Annual Pro-Am Golf Event
by Tracy Hanson, OHM Board Member & Retired LPGA Tour Player
I am excited to announce we have set the date for our Open Hearts Ministry Annual Pro-Am for August 15, 2016 at Quail Ridge Golf Club in Grand Rapids, MI. Once again we will host the LPGA/Symetra Tour Professionals who will play along with each foursome. This is a wonderful opportunity to play a great golf course with extremely talented lady professionals, as well as to raise funds for Open Hearts Ministry to continue training leaders to create safe communities where people speak their stories of pain, loss, or abuse and start healing together.
As a retired LPGA Tour Player and OHM Board Member, I am thrilled to be back as the Tournament Director for our 3rd Pro-Am event. I love using the gifts God has blessed me with to give back to a ministry that has played a significant role in helping me understand my story of childhood sexual abuse. When I shared a small piece of my story during our awards reception last year, I was acutely aware of the redemptive work God has done in my life and my growing passion to help others know that their stories matter too.
A day on the golf course with fun games and laughter is a great venue to raise both funds and build awareness about the work OHM engages in. The lady professionals really make this a unique and enjoyable day with lasting memories.
