Golf Season is Here! Double your fun!

1. Our 18th Annual Golf Outing Tees Off on July 30th!

It's time to turn thoughts to green grass and golf season! It's also time to get your tickets to the 18th Annual Samaritan House Golf Outing which will be held on Saturday, July 30th, at Heather Hills. Tickets are available at Samaritan House, by emailing Kathy at or on our website. A $125 ticket includes 18 holes of golf, cart, continental breakfast, lunch on the turn and the awards dinner. There will also be contests on the course and raffle items for bid. This event sells out every year, so don't miss out on the fun! We are looking for golfers, volunteers, donors and sponsors.

Samaritan House needs your help to make the 18th Annual Golf Outing a huge success. It's our biggest event of the year and puts food on the pantry shelves for 3 months! We need TEAM donors to help us hold a successful auction. We're looking for:
  • Trips (to the Zoo, Mackinaw, Frankenmuth, etc.)
  • Entertainment (concert tickets, sports tickets, signed jersey, etc.)
  • Activities (CJ Barrymore's, Zap Zone, Golfsmith, etc.)
  • Memorable (big screen TV, lease for a car, etc.)

The weather couldn't have been better for the 3rd annual Fashion, Flowers & Food Fête at Tapper Gardens in Bruce Township.

We are very grateful for the gracious generosity of Richard and Carol Tapper for allowing us to use their beautiful gardens.

Thank You Volunteers!

We salute the true hearts and hands of Samaritan House - our volunteers. With only three part-time employees, the incredible work accomplished here for our brothers and sisters is done because of the kindness and love from 90 plus volunteers that give of their time every month.

From putting out loaves of bread and meeting with clients to stocking the shelves, sweeping the floors and fixing the doors, our volunteers are the BEST! Bless you.
