Coach Katie Meier to Host UMSHoF / Hurricane Club Golf Tournament
UMSHoF Partners with Loupe for Charity Golf Tournament
The University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame is proud to announce they have partnered with Loupe, an online sports card marketplace, for the 29th Annual UMSHoF Celebrity Golf Tournament, presented by Loupe. The event will be held on Thursday, October 21st at the Biltmore Golf Course and will be hosted by UM Women’s Basketball Coach Katie Meier, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Hurricane Club.
“We’re excited to partner with the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame for its annual golf tournament,” says Loupe founder and CEO Eric Doty. “We respect the positive influence the U of M has played within collegiate athletics and the local community at-large. As a new sports business in the Miami area, this tradition of giving back is something we hope to emulate. We look forward to Loupe and the UMSHoF serving Miami for years to come.”
Loupe is a live marketplace where collectors flock to buy sports cards with an audience watching. With a few taps on your phone, you can safely purchase packs, watch them opened on a high-quality stream, and then shipped to your door within days.
Loupe has a deep Miami presence in the heart of Wynwood. Its headquarters is a state-of-the-art card shop on NW 26th St. Local artist Keyani Watkins painted Miami sports legends inside Loupe’s shop to complement the street art of the Wynwood Walls outside. It’s the perfect hangout spot to talk sports and open cards with friends. Loupe looks forward to serving the Miami community through charitable efforts for years to come.
“We are pleased to have Loupe join us as the presenting sponsor of the UM Sports Hall of Fame Celebrity Golf Tournament,” said Tracy Kerdyk, Golf Chairperson and UMSHoF Past President. “Loupe is new to Miami but already is giving back to the community. They will make a big impact in our event and help raise valuable funds for the Hall and the Hurricane Club. We look forward to a wonderful partnership.”
The golf tournament is scheduled for Thursday, October 21st, and kicks off with registration and lunch, along with a silent auction, at 11:00 am followed by a 1:00 pm shotgun start on the 18 holes at the Biltmore Golf Course. An awards reception will follow the golf.
Corporate teams of four golfers are available for $1500. Sponsorships are available. Go to CanesGolf.com or call the UM Sports Hall of Fame at 305-284-2775 to inquire about your company becoming a sponsor.
