Dearborn – For those of you who don’t know what a Coney Island hot dog is, it’s a traditional American hot dog on a bun, smothered in chili, mustard, and onions. It’s a favorite treat from New York to Michigan, in the heart of Midwest America. Joe’s Top Dog Coney Island Restaurant is owned by Joe and Zoja Bojovic, and is a favorite restaurant of many in downtown Dearborn, MI. For 16 years, they have given freely of themselves in establishing the Joe’s Top Dog Outing for Charity, and for the past 12 years, it has been dedicated to the residents of St. Louis Center in Chelsea, MI.
A total of 28 teams participated in this year’s event, bringing 112 golfers to Dearborn Hills Golf Course, and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere of unlimited Coney dogs and soft drinks on a hot day that approached 90 degrees. During the dinner event, Fr. Enzo Addari, SdC., said the opening prayer before dinner, and had each of the four residents he brought with him come to the microphone to say a few words and thank the crowd. It was another great day for the residents of St. Louis Center, as many great friends continued to learn of the mission of the Servants of Charity, and one resident, Jason, got to spend the day with his sister, Kelly. Special thanks to the Bojovic Family for all of their hard work on our behalf.
