First Tee-Benton Harbor to Host Virtual Scholarship Dinner


In a year of unmatched need and unexpected challenges, First Tee-Benton Harbor is hosting a free virtual scholarship dinner on Wednesday evening, November 18th from 7 until 7:30. All proceeds from the event will go towards participant scholarships.

An online silent auction benefiting First Tee Benton Harbor will begin November 18th at 7:00pm
and run through 11:59pm November 30th. The online silent auction can be found at

“At First Tee-Benton Harbor, we’ve adjusted and persevered to ensure we remain a resource for youth in our community, providing programs that empower and encourage them during a challenging year,” said Ebon Sanders, First Tee-Benton Harbor Executive Director. “Proceeds from this auction will enable us to provide scholarships for our local youth for years to come.”

First Tee is a youth development organization using golf as a catalyst for personal growth. First Tee-Benton Harbor reaches more than 2,700 young people annually in Berrien County.

First Tee will be kicking off awareness around the event beginning Tuesday, November 17. North Shore Inn will be donating $2 to First Tee for every famous burger they sell, both carry-out and dine-in. In addition, North Pier Brewing Company will be donating $1 from every pint sold. Both give-backs will run through Thursday, November 19.

The give-back at North Shore is highlighted through First Tee’s “Nothing But Cup” video, featuring Mya Miller and Jason Wright, current participants in the First Tee program. You can view the video at:
