      Second annual Henriksen Memorial golf fundraiser

      The Marquette Golf Club will host the second annual Grant Henriksen Memorial Fundraiser Saturday August 16.

      Organizers say their goal is to raise $12,000. All the proceeds go to help Upper Peninsula families with a child battling cancer.

      "Our hope is that we're able to soften some of the hardness that goes along with the child having cancer by being able to provide just monetary donations to families with the hope that they can maintain some normalcy for the child in a really tough trying time for the entire family," says committee member Jill Zueger.

      Organizers are still looking for five teams and volunteers to fill spots. Registration is $200 for a team of four.

      The event also offers a raffle, live auction and Bloody Mary bar. Play begins at noon Saturday August 16.
