Chris Chelios "Assists" Megan's Dreams Golf Outing to Benefit Homeless Animals and Young Veterinarians

In Memory of Megan Darr-Soroka, 6th Annual Outing Takes Place at Dearborn Hills

DEARBORN, MI--(Marketwire - May 24, 2012) - Helping to fulfill the dreams of Megan Darr-Soroka, a popular manager at Cheli's Chili Bar in Detroit, the event contributes to an endowment fund for Michigan State University veterinary students and the Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter. Celebrating her life and passion for animals and those who care for them, Megan's Dreams Golf Outing takes place on Friday, June 8, at Dearborn Hills Golf Course, 1300 S. Telegraph Road. As one of Michigan's best public golf courses, Dearborn Hills is perfect for all interested golfers, novice and serious alike.

"Former Detroit Red Wing great Chris Chelios serves as honorary co-chair of the event and is joining in the golf festivities with us this year to help round out the day," comments Tim Keyes, Megan's Dreams spokesperson. "We welcome all to join Chris and the rest of us to support these two great charities."

"Collaboration between two nonprofits is key to Megan's Dreams," shares Friends Development Director Kelle Sisung. "We've come together to create a truly unique outing that stands apart from the rest." Mr. Chelios provided one of the many unique auction items: a tour for four people of the Red Wings locker room and the opportunity to attend a morning skate at Joe Louis Arena. Golfers will have a chance to bid on this once-in-a-lifetime package throughout the day on the course.
