Marquette, MIJune 24, 2016 — This year’s annual Beacon House Celebrity Classic was a little different than in previous years. This year at the tournament, Steve Mariucci and the Beacon House kicked off a new capital campaign in order to fund the building of a new Beacon House next to the new location of the hospital here in Marquette. The event was held Wed. the 22nd and Thurs. the 23rd at The Marquette Golf Club.

The festivities began at the Landmark Inn when the celebrities arrived on Wednesday. There was a lot of excitement, handshakes and hugs exchanged between the celebrities, members of the Beacon House and the media. When everyone was accounted for, two busses were boarded and the group headed down to the Beacon House for a message from Mariucci and photos. After, the buses headed to The Marquette Golf Club, but not before driving by the site of where the new hospital is being constructed.

At the course, the “Match Party” had begun. The Match Party is the event where teams in the tournament are matched with a celebrity who will play on their team the following day. Wednesday night was when Mariucci officially kicked off the capital campaign for the new Beacon House. The Match Party consisted of dinner, drinks, both silent and live auctions, performances and introductions of all of the celebrities in attendance.

The tournament began Thursday morning with the first team teeing off on the Heritage course at 10:00 after a breakfast served at the course, a ping-pong ball drop and a performance by a magician. Concluding the tournament was a “19th Hole Party” for all of the celebrities and tournament players of the day.

Thank you to everyone who made the 2016 Beacon House Celebrity Golf Classic a great and successful event!
