Play Heads & Tails to Win The Contents of a Self-Storage Unit! Just like on the TV Show “Storage Wars”.
$25 buys you a wristband and the opportunity to win the contents of a Self-Storage Unit donated by U-Store Self Storage! Shh…the contents is a surprise but we can tell you this…the value of the contents is $1,200. What could they be? Buy a wristband, or two, or three and take a chance to be the lucky winner and find out! Immediately before the live auction, our auctioneer, Steve Gross, will ask all participants to stand and place your hand on your “Head” or on your “Tail”. Steve will then flip a coin. The coin flip continues until we have the last person standing, the winner of the Storage Unit Contents!
Limit 3 wristbands per person!

More about North Star Reach:
North Star Reach is under construction on a 105 acre peninsula in Pinckney, MI and will be “home” to children with serious health challenges for week-long sessions each summer. Starting in Summer 2016 campers won’t focus on their challenges and limitations, they will be creating lasting relationships and focusing on having fun and trying new things. For this magical week, they are just a kid at camp. North Star Reach will serve approximately 1500 campers a year, all free of charge; supported by generous donations and fundraisers like “Charity Begins at Home”. The proceeds from this golf outing and gala will directly support the camp operations as no child or family will pay to attend.
The power of camp experiences for children and families is a magical thing. We thank you for your support of this event in helping provide these experiences in the Great Lakes Region for generations to come. The first campers are in session from July 3rd - 10th (Transplant), second session is July 16th-23rd (congenital Heart), and third is July 30th - August 6th (Sickle Cell).
"It's not that the children say, ‘Thanks for the wonderful time.’ It’s that they say, ‘thank you for changing my life.’” – Paul Newman
