This summer, Oakland Hills Country Club is the place where dreams will be made possible for thousands of metro Detroit area kids, families and individuals.

(And the 90th PGA Championship comes to town too.)

On Monday, June 23, the historic Oakland Hills County Club plays host to the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit Legacy Golf Classic. Chaired by Alan Mulally, president and chief executive officer for Ford Motor Company, the event raises funds to support the YMCA Endowment Fund.

"The YMCA is very grateful to Alan Mulally for his leadership of this year's Legacy Golf Classic, our signature corporate fundraising event," said Reid Thebault, president and chief executive officer for the YMCA. "Alan's support has been instrumental in helping secure the generous support of the Michigan business community, raising some $275,000 to help fund vital YMCA programs that build strong kids, strong families and strong communities."

Ford Motor Company and Ford Credit, together with Daimler Chrysler/Chrysler Financial, General Motors/GMAC, and Lexus are the presenting sponsors of the YMCA Legacy Golf Classic.

The YMCA Endowment, with the YMCA annual Strong Kids Campaign, provides financial assistance to one in four families who turn to the YMCA for Summer Day Camp and Residence Camp, Youth Sports and Aquatics, Child Care and Health & Fitness programs. This summer more than 1,000 kids in southeast Michigan will have access to Summer Day Camp and Overnight Camp because of the YMCA Endowment Fund and Strong Kids Campaign donations.

The YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit serves more than 300,000 people across Southeast Michigan through its programs and activities. The YMCA's mission is to put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The YMCA believes in providing membership and program services to all those who desire to participate in the YMCA regardless of their ability to pay. For more information, call the YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit at (313) 267-5300 or online at ymcadetroit.org.
