nspiring success – in high school, college, career and beyond – is the backbone of our work at the Midnight Golf Program. Last year, we focused on providing even more supports for young people to foster an environment where they can succeed as students and professionals.

Financially: 20 scholarship funds, totaling more than $200,000, assisted students in realizing the dream of college. Our annual Birthday Celebration raised more money than ever for programming with generous corporate and individual support.



ACT and SAT training courses were added to help students prepare for these challenging assessments. We also expanded resources for college students, including additional touch points from staff, mentors and alumni. We now have four full-time college success coaches.

Partnerships with historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) were further cultivated, with 38 percent of MGP high school graduates attending HBCUs as compared to 9 percent nationwide.

Professionally: The inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit (see page 8) offered students opportunities to volunteer at the sold-out PGA-tour event, work alongside broadcasting legends, network with golf pros and fans, and provided a $225,000 investment in our program.

Reneé Fluker

Founder & President

We are absolutely thrilled with the progress of MGP students and alumni and excited about the growth and stability of our organization. Thank you for being part of our work in making educational and career success possible for so many determined young people.

Chairman of the Board

Rising college costs place a particularly heavy burden on households of color, which often face additional barriers to employment and to better-paying jobs. In 2017, average in-state tuition and fees accounted for at least 20 percent of the median household income for Hispanic families in 22 states and at least 20 percent of the median household income for black families in 33 states.

Midnight Golf Program



MGP Class of 2009 Alumna


hanelle Manus, a 2009 high school graduate, learned many lessons from the Midnight Golf Program that she still carries in her back pocket. From how to keep an open mind, to where to place a name tag, to when to write a thank you note, to how to research colleges, MGP taught her life skills that were not being presented in the public school system. She says, “Midnight Golf is really good for support and giving you the tools that you need to be successful.”

Today she is an HR policy specialist for the City of Detroit, where she writes, conducts research and analyzes policy and will be transitioning to her own law firm - Manus Law - this year. Her future aspirations include working in a professional role for the NBA.

And that success has followed her. In the ten years since high school graduation, Chanelle has focused on education. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Wayne State University; landed an internship with the Detroit Lions media relations department (MGP connections helped to open the door); attained a Juris Doctor degree from Western Michigan University Cooley Law School; and is in her fourth season as an intern with the Detroit Pistons.

Although she hasn’t reached the pinnacle of her career, she is determined to help others.

While studying for the Michigan Bar Exam, she worked three jobs, yet passed the exam last year on her first try. One of the really compelling aspects of Chanelle’s educational journey is that she served as a mentor at Midnight Golf all through law school and while studying for the bar. “Midnight Golf was just one of those things that I could not give up,” says Chanelle.

“It is imperative to lift as we climb”

“It is imperative to lift as we climb,” says Chanelle. “As I'm working to try to make a career for myself, it's important to give back to the Midnight Golf Program youth who are looking to make something of themselves.” The Midnight Golf Program helped Chanelle figure out what she wanted to do, where to go to school, and how to accomplish her goals. “If I can do that for someone else, that brings me satisfaction.” Even today, she relies on a handful of special people she met in Midnight Golf for counsel. “Ms. Reneé, Mr. Ambrose, Mr. Gamlin, Sommer [Woods], and Jason [Malone]. These are people that, if I’m considering a big life choice, I talk to, find out their opinion,” says Chanelle. “It really matters to me what they think.”

Impact Report



ike clockwork, every Tuesday and Thursday Reggie Mills shows up as a Midnight Golf Program mentor for the high school success program. Having been through real-life experiences himself, including raising two daughters and 23 years in recovery, he feels he can talk honestly about both the pitfalls and joys of life, through his own struggles and accomplishments. One of those struggles was in 2016, when Reggie’s late wife was battling cancer. While mentoring and counseling MGP students, he was also on the receiving end, reaping support. “Every student that I dealt with, engaged with in mentoring, called me on a daily basis, sent me cards, words of encouragement, and text messages,” says Reggie. “The program itself kept me motivated throughout the whole year, and when my wife passed, it kept me moving forward.”

“It's amazing how in 32 weeks, you can capture their attention and really engage their enthusiasm to want to achieve more.” That motivation continues today, fueled by watching MGP young people succeed during the program, graduate from high school, and move on to college. “It's amazing to see how in 32 weeks, you can capture their attention and really engage their enthusiasm

to want to achieve more." Reggie is an achiever himself. He works for UAW International as the UAW-Ford Coordinator for the National Employee Support Service Program. He has taken MGP participants to visit some of the Ford facilities to help them understand the manufacturing business in areas like engineering and others that showcase the production process beyond the factory floor. In his sixth year as a mentor, Reggie has touched the lives of many young people. He has a particular bond with Antonio, who is now a sophomore at Michigan State University. They communicate at least twice a month when Antonio is in school and weekly during the summers. Reggie says that they are very close, and he’s proud of Antonio’s determination to be successful and help others: “It’s the background that he comes from and watching him not letting that background be his story,” says Reggie. “He's wanting to create his own story.” Beyond mentoring students like Antonio, Reggie supports MGP financially. Not only does he sponsor events, he also established the Phyllis Mills Gift of Love Scholarship Fund in memory of his wife, who wanted to give back to students going into the medical field. “I can actually see how my donations are creating lifelong journeys,” says Reggie.

Midnight Golf Program



hen the opportunity arose to participate in the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit last year, the Midnight Golf Program jumped. Thanks to a fabulous partnership with the team at Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans, MGP engaged at multiple levels – including receiving a $225,000 grant as a primary beneficiary.

“Every facet you could possibly be engaged with, they were.” However, the partnership went well beyond the financial support. Students and alumni were offered opportunities of a lifetime, including: • Internships during tournament week • Paid positions with the PGA TOUR LIVE broadcast team • A dinner reception with PGA Tour pro Harold Varner III, one of three African American golfers on the tour • An MGP activation booth in the “Fan Zone"

The unprecedented experience at Detroit’s first-ever PGA TOUR event, held last summer at the historic Detroit Golf Club, allowed young people to gain hands-on experience in event planning, sports and entertainment, and broadcasting. It provided “opportunities for students and alumni of the Midnight Golf Program to look at different career options and see how they intersect with sports,” says Laura Grannemann, vice president of strategic investment at the Quicken Loans Community Fund. The event also provided a platform to meet new partners. PGA Tour Professional and youth advocate Harold Varner III was so impressed with one Midnight Golf student that he asked him to caddy for him the next day of the tournament. To create a deeper impact, beyond the annual classic, Quicken Loans is working with MGP to grow its program and better prepare students and alumni for success in college and beyond. Among these efforts

is a program that would connect students with Quicken Loans team members – 17,000 strong in Detroit – as an added layer of postsecondary support.

“Our goal is to ensure that our talent stays here. Even if you leave, we want you to know that you have something to come back to.” Trina Scott is an MGP Board Member and serves as Quicken Loans’ vice president of diversity and inclusion. She says that one of the strongest links to MGP for Quicken Loans is the cultivation of a future Detroit talent pool. “The Midnight Golf Program offers a pipeline of diverse talent into our Family of Companies” says Trina. “Our goal is to ensure that our talent stays here. Even if you leave, we want you to know that you have something to come back to.” Education and success of Detroit young people is what makes the Midnight Golf Program and Quicken Loans partnership strong. With three years ahead for the Detroit-based Rocket Mortgage Classic, and a foundation being set for mentoring support for MGP college students from Quicken Loans employees, who knows how far across the fairway this partnership will reach.
