SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2021 – 9:45am
SUGAR LOAF THE OLD COURSE, CEDAR, MICHIGAN
The Little Traverse Inn is pleased to announce its partnership with The Blue Bench Project, a charity to create
awareness with regard to teen su***de. A charity golf scramble will take place on Sunday, October 3rd at Sugar
Loaf The Old Course and will begin at 9:45am. Activities will include a golf scramble, a raffle and prizes and all
golfers will be treated to a steak dinner at Little Traverse Inn.
The Blue Bench Project has a mission of creating awareness with regards to teen su***de and enabling
community involvement to help struggling teens. The project will be eternally focused on helping teens to make
and maintain connections with family, friends and professionals who can help them through issues and crisis. The
main objective will be to create community spaces around each blue bench created in order to symbolize a “safe
place” where someone who is struggling can sit and talk with a helper. The Blue Bench Project is the brainchild of
Tracy Smedes-Hepler, who lost her teenage son to su***de in 2017. “I want teens to know that it’s okay to not be
okay,” Smedes-Hepler stated. “You just need to reach out if you’re struggling.”. The secondary focus of the
project is working to connect teens with people who can help them work through these issues and offer financial
support.
The Blue Bench Project is dedicated to developing teen su***de awareness in Leelanau County and the focus of
the project is two-fold:
1. Creating “artistic benches” to symbolize having a safe place to talk to someone. The blue benches
with ultimately become centerpieces for community spaces
2. Creating scholarships to connect teens with a trained therapist.
The Sunday event will begin with a presentation of the project to the public and the unveiling of the first blue
bench, which was created by students from the Leelanau School. Immediately afterwards, Little Traverse Inn will
be hosting a steak dinner for all participants

If you are interested in participating please let us know. There is room for a few more teams and we would love to have you join us in supporting a great cause.

With David at the best little pub in Leelanau.
Can't wait to be up there this Friday, Little Traverse Inn is one of the best places in Michigan.
SAW SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS WAITING FOR HIS FRIDAY NIGHT WALLEYE DINNER AT LITTLE TRAVERSE INN IN LEELANAU COUNTY TONIGHT! He was torn between the perch and the walleye dinner. Tough decision! He decided on the delicious walleye takeout and know he will not be disappointed.

Just had a wonderful Father's Day dinner at the LTI with my eldest daughter, made all the better by the wonderfully talented and entertaining music and poetry of Leelanau County's own Good Boy band. Thanks for a great meal.
We ordered dinner tonight and it was fabulous..delivered by the owner himself...he wasn't wearing a kilt butt....I mean butt we did get it delivered... Love you guys the food was fabulous!
Just enjoyed an incredible Fish 'n Chips dinner from LTI - hot, delicious, affordable, and made really easy by the crew at LTI. Stop by, enjoy the grub, get a brew, and consider supporting the crew at the LTI, who are stepping up for our community.
Wonderful music the best dinner as always Happy New Year Everyone
