image Another incredible JDRF fundraiser concluded Monday evening at Franklin Hills CC.   I’m still waiting on the final numbers, but they raised a bunch of money for Type 1 diabetes research.

Some of the notables on hand:

  • Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz, who kicked off the outing with a passionate speech about JDRF along with a few positive words about his Lions.   Word of advice: don’t cross this guy.  He looks like an MMA fighter and he’s all business.

Here’s Schwartz delivering the opening remarks (don’t cross him!):


  • Channel 7 sports director Don Shane, served for the second year in a row as master of ceremonies of the dinner afterwards and can really swing the golf club, FWIW.  Here’s Shane mastering the dinner ceremony:
