FLUSHING, Mich. -- The second annual King Par Classic, which is hosted by King Par in Flushing, Michigan, is pleased to announce the charity golf tournament raised $59,000 for the Whaley Children's Center. Over the past two years, the King Par Classic has raised more than $90,000 for the Center.

The King Par Classic was played June 25 on the prestigious Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc, Michigan. There were 160 golfers who played in the event and Detroit Red Wings announcer Mickey Redmond was the masters of ceremonies for the evening and live auction.
