Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational

Since its inception in 2019, the #TeamUp for the Great Lakes Bay Region charitable giving effort has awarded over $200,000 to local charities throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region.

All 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in the Great Lakes Bay Region are invited to apply. Nonprofits will be chosen based on their organization’s impact to STEM, Sustainability, Inclusion, and/or Innovation. Once selected, each of the 36 nonprofits (7 each from Saginaw, Bay, Midland, Isabella plus 8 regional nonprofits) will be paired with 2 of the 72 teams competing in the 2021 LPGA event. A total pool of $237,500 will be donated through this program. Each LPGA team is worth $2,250 – guaranteeing $4,500 for each nonprofit.

Additional enhancements to the 2021 #TeamUp for the Great Lakes Bay Region charitable program will be announced at a later date. Cisco awarded The Care Store and HopeWell Ranch as the most engaged organizations at the 2019 #TeamUp for the Great Lakes Bay Region event. These two nonprofits also received a guaranteed entry to the 2021 Dow GLBI #TeamUp event.

For questions about #TeamUp for the GLBR, please contact Dow GLBI Marketing and Communications Manager Michele Bates at mbates@eigermarketing.com. Please note that charities have already been selected for 2021. However, we'd love to have your charity a part of our volunteer program! If you're interested, please contact Cam Wing at cwing@eigermarketing.com.
