Rinks To Links
Rinks To Links is a Federally and State of Michigan recognized 501c3 Nonprofit organization. The Rinks To Links Federal Tax ID (EIN) paperwork is available upon request.

The beneficiary of the Rinks To Links organization is the Grand Rapids Sled Wings hockey program. The Grand Rapids Sled Wings is an adaptive hockey program for athletes with physical disabilities that would keep them from playing regular stand-up hockey. Although the Sled Wings are currently the sole beneficiary, future donations might be made to other West Michigan “Special Hockey” programs.

The Sled Wings are sponsored in partnership by Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital’s Wheelchair and Adaptive Sports program maryfreebed.com/sports , the Grand Rapids Griffins Youth Foundation, and supported by the generous donations of Rinks To Links which is Federally recognized 501c3 Non-Profit organization.

The goal of the Rinks to Links organization is to raise funds via an annual charity golf outing and other donations with 100% of the proceeds to be donated to the Grand Rapids Sled Wings and possibly other “special hockey” programs in the future. Each year Rinks To Links along with the Sled Wings coaches decide what needs the Sled Wings program has for the upcoming season. At that point a donation is made to the Mary Free Bed Wheelchair and Adaptive Sports Department with an itemized list of how the donation should be used, with a large remainder being used for the team’s travel expenses and other general costs.

The Rinks To Links charity golf outing is held the first Sunday of every August with a 10:00 a.m. shotgun start at Falcon Head Golf Course located at 13120 Northland Drive, Big Rapids, MI 49307.

In the event an organization does not wish to sponsor, we are also actively recruiting donations for door prizes, golf hole contest items and goodie bag items. These donated items may include but are not limited to: gift certificates, hats, shirts, food, drink or other corporate items. We are anticipating up to 36 foursomes to be participating in this event.

We appreciate your consideration for Rinks To Links / Grand Rapids Sled Wings charity golf outing and hope you will join us in raising money for this great cause.
