The Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational (GLBI) has announced the 36 nonprofits that will be participating in the 2022 #TeamUp for the Great Lakes Bay Region charitable program. More than 100 nonprofits in the Great Lakes Bay Region applied for this opportunity. Seven charities were selected from four of the region’s counties – Saginaw, Bay, Midland, and Isabella – and eight regional nonprofits were also selected. Senior Services of Midland County was selected based on the organization’s impact on equity and inclusion (DE&I) within the community.
Each of the 36 nonprofits will be paired randomly with two of the 72 teams competing in the 2022 LPGA event. A total of $237,500 will be donated through this program with each selected nonprofit guaranteed to receive at least one $4,500 grant. There will be additional grant opportunities based on the teams’ performance in the tournament. Teams in the lead after Round 1 and Round 2 will receive a total of $3,000 each. At the conclusion of the final round, each of the top 10 teams will receive a $5,000 contribution and the first-place team will earn an additional $11,000. Selected nonprofit organizations will also have the opportunity to earn bonus funds during the Dow GLBI.
