The yearly Shamrock 555 – Stephen Luigi Piazza Golf Outing proved to be an event missed by everyone, but all who attended this year’s Outing certainly made up for the pandemic hiatus of 2020.
The glorious August weather was the backdrop to the 3rd Shamrock Golf Outing, a perfect day enjoyed by all our supporters who joined in to follow in SLP’s footsteps by pulling together in friendship, fun and generosity for the good of others.
The highlight of our Event was the opportunity to present in person the SLP Impact Award to three well-deserving seniors so that their hopes and dreams of beginning their college educations could be realized. Our lucky recipients were Paris Canty and Akayla Watkins candidates from the Downtown Boxing Gym and Kaliq White an attendee of the Mosiac Youth Theatre.
We were also delighted to again include Northstar Research into our family of Impact Award winners helping them to continue with the amazing work they do to give terminally and chronically ill children a better quality of life.
So, to our loyal sponsors, our hard-working volunteers, our thirsty golfers and diners, our lucky Auction winners and our Sneakerhead lovers, the Board sincerely wishes to thank each and every one of you all for making our Event such an enormous success! The photos clearly capture the fantastic day had by all celebrating the life and mission of our much loved founder, the late Stephen Luigi Piazza.
Hello to all of our Shamrock 555 Foundation friends, we hope that everyone has been staying safe and healthy during this difficult time in the world.
After much discussion and consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Stephen Luigi Piazza Golf Outing event on August 6th, 2020. We know each of you will be as disappointed as we are to not be able to celebrate this great event honoring SLP among all of our friends, but we feel this is the right decision. The possibility of serious health risks to our guests combined with the likely restrictions to our event and its attendance were the main factors we had to consider.
We are confident if SLP was here he would have had some witty Luigi-ism to say that would lighten our disappointment and bring things into perspective. Something like… “ When nothing goes right, then you have to go left” or “no rain means no flowers” or one of his personal favorites, “Let's all count our blessings not our problems”.
The 555 Foundation Board will be meeting periodically over the next few months to evaluate the conditions and risks associated with larger gatherings for later this year. Our goal is to provide a Gala or some alternate event in late 2020 if the world continues to return to more normal conditions. We will keep you all posted as we continue to monitor things and make decisions accordingly.
Thank you all for your support!
The Shamrock 555 – 2nd Annual SLP Golf Outing proved to be a “hole in one” kind of day!
The day was filled with energy, fun and friendship, all inspired by Stephen Luigi Piazza and his wishes to “spread kindness and generosity around like confetti”.
To those who sponsored our Event, an enormous thank you! It’s their generosity and loyalty to Shamrock 555 that helps continue to make SLP’s vision come true.
To our Hole in One winner, Rich Stimson, for making the day even more exciting by sinking that lucky ball on Hole #3 sponsored by Platinum Motors and Meade Lexus of Sterling Heights.
To our volunteers, whom I am delighted to say are increasing in numbers as the Foundation grows, for their time and willingness to get involved and lend a hand wherever needed.
To all our golfers, diners and guests for making the day such an enormous success and, subsequently, making it possible to present three - $10,000 SLP Impact Awards this year! Two for scholarship assistance to Carlyn Brown and Charisma Parker enabling them to reach academic heights through their college education goals.
The third to North Star Reach, a local summer camp catering specifically to children in our community with terminal and serious health challenges.
On behalf of the Shamrock 555 Board… congratulations to all three! A sincere and heartfelt thank you to ALL for making this Event another memorable one as clearly captured in the photo library that follows!
