The Michael Shannon Musician’s Fund has been established by Lindsay Shannon family and the Kansas City Blues Society to help musicians and music industry professionals who suffer economic hardship due to catastrophic events. This fund will be administered by the Kansas City Blues Society, a 501 (c)(3) corporation.

On Wednesday September 7, 2016, noon, the Mike Shannon Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at Hillcrest Country Club, 8200 Hillcrest Rd. Kansas City, Mo. We are anticipating a highly successful and well-attended tournament. We invite you and/or your company to join us by becoming a sponsor. Show the Lindsay Shannon Family and the Kansas City Blues Society friends, neighbors and colleagues your or your company’s commitment to help provide funds for this great cause. We are offering various levels of sponsorship: Platinum, Gold and Silver as well as hole sponsorships and hole-in-one sponsorships. On Wednesday, August 31, 2016, there will be a pre-party at Knuckleheads Saloon. This party will be a celebration of Michael’s life and music will be provided by Kansas City’s great talent of musicians. Platinum, Gold and Silver Sponsors will be recognized at this great event.

If corporate sponsorship is not possible for your organization we would still be excited to have any employees from your company enter in the tournament. Participants for the eighteen-hole scramble enter in teams of four, with a minimum donation of $100 per golfer. Carts, lunch (provided by BBs Lawnside BBq) and free refreshments (beer, water, soda) are included with this donation. Participants are encouraged to solicit pledge support from, family, business, and civic affiliations.

If you have any questions about the tournament or donations, please feel free to contact Todd Abrams through e-mail at ToddAbrams11@gmail.com or by phone at 816.754.6631 or Danny Powell At powdan54@gmail.com or by phone at 816-215-7148. We thank you in advance for your support for this great cause!
Sincerely,

The Michael Shannon Golf Classic Committee
