NAMI’s Fifth and Fabulous Golf Outing

Get Fabulous for Mental Health

Join NAMI of Erie County on June 23, 2017, for our Fifth and Fabulous Golf Outing at Venango Valley Inn and Golf Course. We promise more food, more fun and more feathers. NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing has gained more and more support from the community. Last year’s event raised more than $25,000 for NAMI’s free educational programs and services with help from 150 golfers, our community sponsors and the TEAM Fabulous Golf Committee.

Golfers always enjoy a FABULOUS day at Venango Valley Inn and Golf Course, beginning with live music by Mike Trott and microbrews courtesy of the Brewerie at Union Station. In addition to sunshine and a cool breeze on the greens, golfers compete for the Golden Boa Award and $3,000 in fabulous team prizes, while DJ Tony B plays all the hits right on the course. After completing the day with a delicious steak dinner, awards and $7,000 in raffle baskets, and golfers cap off a FABULOUS time for a FABULOUS cause.

Proceeds benefit NAMI of Erie County’s free educational programs and services that support individuals and families living with mental health challenges. NAMI’s evidence based-programs provide individuals and families with the skills they need on the road to recovery, providing them hope for a better tomorrow.

NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing is not only a great time, but it creates an environment that starts the conversation about mental health. The fabulous part is that the more we talk about mental health, the more barriers we break down in the battle to reduce stigma for people facing daily mental health challenges.

Thus far, the Fabulous Golf Outing has raised more than $100,000 for NAMI of Erie County’s free programs and services! These funds have helped NAMI assist over 24,000 Erie County individuals and families in need of mental health education and support. With your help, NAMI looks forward to helping even more Erie County families in need!

Sponsorship 

NAMI’s Fabulous Golf Outing would not be possible without our sponsors. These funds have helped NAMI assist more than 16,000 Erie County individuals and families in need of mental health education and support.

‘Fabulous’ Fat Tuesday Kicks Off Golf Outing

On Tuesday, February 28, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Erie County was the proud beneficiary of a Guest Bartending event at the Brewerie at Union Station.  At the event, which coincided with Fat Tuesday, there was live Dixieland Jazz by the Dixie Doodlers, and the proceeds raised from the night went to support NAMI’s programs and services.

In addition, this event served as the kickoff for our Fifth and Fabulous Annual Golf Outing, which will be held Friday, June 23 at Venango Valley Inn.

Thus far, $100,000 has been raised from the previous four golf outings, and we’re excited to make this upcoming golf outing bigger and better than ever.
