LAKE ORION, Michigan – Guest House, the world’s first and most successful residential treatment and recovery provider for Catholic clergy and religious, raised more than $75,000 June 24, selling out all 144 slots for its 34th annual Guest House Golf Classic.
“We provide things that are so incredibly unique. We can’t do that without your support,’’ Guest House President and CEO Jeff Henrich told the benefactors. “We end up underwriting more than $1 million worth of care every year…You are encouraging clergy and religious throughout the world. That’s a really unique situation.
“When we treat clergy and religious, we save a life. We save the vocation. But we send people out into the world to go back into ministry and they touch the lives of thousands upon thousands of people. I call it a ripple effect. Some say it’s more like a tidal wave. The people we have the privilege of treating go back to really impact the world that we live in and we can’t do that without you. The clergy and religious we treat can’t get this anywhere else in the world.”
Guest House would like to thank the top sponsors for this year’s event: The Webber Group, Knights of Columbus State Council of Michigan, Collaborative Data, Inc., Diversified Members Credit Union, APCOR Construction and Development, Azimuth Capital Management LLC and Randy Wise Ford.
Guest House supporters are now preparing for their biggest event of the year, the 61st annual Detroit Bishop’s Dinner, which will be in the Lovett Hall Ballroom of the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. For ticket information, please call (248) 393-8974.
Guest House saves lives and vocations, specializing in comprehensive addiction services for Catholic clergy and religious including priests, deacons, brothers, sisters and seminarians. Based at the beautiful and historic William E. Scripps Estate in Lake Orion, Michigan since Pentecost 1956, the Catholic nonprofit offers care, education and research to Catholic clergy and religious throughout the world without regard to ability to pay.
