Golf event raises money for sheriff department motorcycle



Organized by the Lapeer Sheriff’s Dept. Motor Unit in just four weeks, a golf outing fund raiser was held Monday at Metamora Country Club to raise money for a 2008- model Harley-Davidson motorcycle from Ray C’s in Lapeer for the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Dept. Nineteen teams participated in the event that included a golf ball drop raffle. The balls were dropped on the 18th green from a helicopter owned and piloted by Steve Francis, owner of Country Smoke House in Almont Township. The ball closest to the pin won the 50/50 raffle. One-hundred and nineteen balls were dropped. Theresa Murphy (left) won the ball drop raffle and donated the winnings of $295 toward the motorcycle. At her right is Murphy’s mother, Marilyn Frantom.
