Please join us for the 10th Annual Patrick O’Rourke Memorial Golf Outing at the scenic Tam-O-Shanter Country Club in West Bloomfield on Monday, September 18, 2023.
Registration: 8-9:30am • Shotgun Start: 10am.
Through your support and participation, this charity event will provide much-needed funding for our community including: supporting Domestic Violence Transitions and most importantly The Patrick O’Rourke Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Sgt. O’Rourke was a revered officer with the West Bloomfield Police Department for 12 years, whom provided service in so many wonderful ways throughout his career. Patrick was a loving and giving father and husband. He was a great friend all around. It is with this outing that we are hoping to continue his love for the job, life, and the community. Sgt. O’Rourke loved to have fun and have a great time with friends and family, but he always made time to support those who needed it most. Like Sgt. O’Rourke, there are many heroes in our community that dedicate their life to the service of others. It is with this event that we in the Law Enforcement Community, look to honor Pat’s memory by connecting the faces and names behind the badge with the people in the community which we serve.
The funds generated by this event will be put to great use.
Amy O’Rourke, Patrick’s wife, approached The Crosshairs Foundation with an idea to create a scholarship fund in her husband’s name. This scholarship is intended to help provide financial support toward education for an individual that desires to serve their community in the field of Public Safety. This scholarship will be awarded each year to a deserving student hoping to enter the field of Law Enforcement.
Patrick’s parents, Dan and Arlene, have become a driving force in the scholarship program and selection. It is with honor and pride that we contribute to the scholarship fund the O’Rourke’s have created and maintained.
The Crosshairs Foundation also seeks to use a portion of the funds raised from this outing to go toward our continuing efforts to aid the victims of domestic violence and officers in Michigan. During the Christmas season, we are looking to assist in comforting the victims of domestic violence by providing an atmosphere of peace and love and as a way to help ease the transition they are making toward a better life. In conjunction with a local domestic violence shelter, we will discretely assist the victims and their children in hopes of providing them with a heart-felt and safe holiday season. We have assisted Honor Guard teams with paying tribute in Washington DC as well as the Michigan chapter of Concerns Of Police Survivors (MICops).
