BATH TWP. — Several former Michigan State athletes participated in the fourth-annual Drew Stanton High 5ive Foundation charity golf outing Friday at Hawk Hollow.

Former football players Blair White, Jehuu Caulcrick, Keith Nichol and Jeff Smoker, basketball players Charlie Bell, Tim Bograkos and Austin Thornton and hockey player Drew Miller were among the 45 celebrities to participate in the event.

“To have 45 celebrities it truly means a lot,” Stanton said. “It speaks volume about the type of character guys that went to Michigan State that I’ve been able to establish relationships with.

“… I was nervous about trying to get 45 guys that I could get to come out and play. The response for it was tremendous in getting all these people out here. I’m looking forward to improving (this outing) and doing great things here in mid-Michigan. This is always going to be home for me.”

Danielle Robinson of the High 5ive Foundation said this year’s event featured the best turnout and the most money raised for charity. Robinson estimates they will raise $60,000 from the event, which will benefit Children’s Miracle Network, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Special Olympics.
