As I write this article the Monday after the outing and look at the upcoming weather forecast, I can only think what a difference a week makes. Our outing took place in 80 degree weather (although windy) but the rain held off until the night. This week’s forecast on Wednesday calls for a high of 58 and rain. Thanks to all those who asked for help from above. We had 101 golfers participate in this year’s event held May 17, 2017 at Ironwood Golf Course in Sussex, WI. Many, many thanks to all those golfers, as well as, those people that came out for hors d’oeuvres only after golf to support our event via the voice auction and raffle tickets. At this time I do not have any final figures. When I do, I will have our President get that information out via his weekly email to the club.
Thanks to our fine committee members of Greg Mattson, Tom Ciskoski, Dan Schwind, Joy Fricke, Carol Schulteis, John Yusko, Larry Barbera, Matt Hakes, and Terry Frisk for helping to plan this outing. Thanks to all members that donated items from golf balls, to bottles of liquor, to items used in our opportunity raffle and voice auction. This allowed us to maximize our profits to fulfill the scholarships we are giving away to our High School seniors. Thanks also to the wonderful hole sponsors, as well as, Sal Zizzo and Trysting Place for sponsoring lunch and donating an item for the raffle. Sal’s total donation that day totals a scholarship that we give away a week later.
Thanks to our volunteers that came out that day to help the day run smoothly. Many of these volunteers are veterans which makes my job much easier as you know what to do without a lot of instruction. This allows me more time to mingle and thank golfers personally for coming out to the event.
