Supporting Detroit from the ground up.
Grosse Pointe Old Devils
The Grosse Pointe Old Devils provides support for academic growth, athletic development and life skills for underserved youth. It does this by assisting Detroit children with building reading skills, supporting local youth hockey by underwriting 20 kids a season who would not otherwise have the opportunity to play and compete in a sport, and spearheads a program that teaches inner-city youth how to swim every summer. CMM Optic supports this organization financially as well through its president’s service on the Board of Directors.
Western Golf Association Evans Scholars
Operated by the Western Gold Association, the Evans Scholars Foundation has helped more than 10,600 caddies graduate from college since its creation in 1930. ESF provides full tuition and college housing to promising young men and women who require financial assistance to attend college. CMM Optic supports this organization through its president’s service as a director, and in the hiring of past and current Scholars as interns. CMM Optic currently has a former Scholar on its senior management team.
