Unfortunately we will be canceling this event due to growing concerns about the COVID-19 virus. This was not an easy decision, but the health and safety of the public and our employees must be our top priority. Thank you again for your time and understanding. Please save the date for next year’s outing on May 15, 2021.
A message to all Bee Brave Golfers:
Thank you so much for your support and fundraising efforts for Bee Brave — it is greatly needed and appreciated! Unfortunately, the cancellation of this year’s Bee Brave Golf Outing sets us back significantly in our fundraising goals — several thousand dollars, in fact.
Your participation — through your registration, raffle & mulligan sales — played a huge role in our fundraising efforts and let us bring on amazing sponsors who underwrite all the expenses! Though the event had to be canceled, our fundraising efforts for Bee Brave and Van Andel Institute can always continue. After all, cancer research won’t be stopped by this virus!
As a way of showing your continued support, would you consider donating part or perhaps all of what you would have spent to attend our outing? We have created a ‘Team Golf’ where you can make your donation. We would be ever so grateful, and I KNOW the Institute will be as well!
Thank you in advance for your consideration!

Bee Brave is more than just a few events throughout the year to raise money for local breast cancer research. Throughout the last twelve years, it has grown to become a community of likeminded individuals who are passionate about raising breast cancer awareness, supporting fighters, and honoring those whose battle has ended. It has become a haven of hope for those who need it, a home to share their courageous stories in, as well as a place to celebrate the victories and triumphs over breast cancer.
Bee Brave is different because 100% of the money raised stays in Grand Rapids, Michigan! But that’s not all. Bee Brave is different because:
Bee Brave raised over $90,000 for breast cancer research in 2018 and that simply would not have been possible without the support of our local business sponsors and the volunteers who give countless hours to this cause. None of our incredible volunteer organizers receive a paycheck from Bee Brave because they would rather see every single dollar be used for research!
