The CATCH Golf Party serves as an entertaining prelude to the sold out CATCH Golf Classic

and is part of a two-day fundraiser for Sparky Anderson's CATCH charity for children. The party

features a strolling dinner, beverage stations, silent and live auctions including trips, golf

packages, sports memorabilia and a variety of other miscellaneous items. Also part of the

festivities is a Teddy Bear Raffle, an opportunity to win his and hers Shinola watches, photo

opportunities with a variety of business, sports and media personalities plus Parade Company

Big Heads and unique sports backdrops. The party also features a brief ceremony for honorees

Greg Kampe and George Blaha.

CATCH, founded by the late Hall of Famer Sparky Anderson, raises money through a series of

special fund-raising events for items and services that help improve the quality of life for sick,

injured and needy pediatric patients at Children's Hospital of Michigan and Henry Ford Hospital.

Whether it be a bed monitor for a child who experiences dangerous seizures during the night or

assisting families with utility and rent payments while taking time off of work to help care for their

sick child, CATCH funds are used in a reactionary manner when no other source of funding


CATCH funds are an important resource for Children's Hospital & Henry Ford Hospital where at

least 75 percent of patients and families that CATCH assists are in the low and moderate

income level.

Patients and families served by CATCH funds are more at-risk and more economically

disadvantaged than the two hospitals' general population, and in most cases, fill a gap when no

other source of funds are available.

Since its founding, CATCH has provided nearly $6 million worth of assistance, and has grown

its board-designated endowment fund to $9 million.
