The 29th Annual Scholarship Golf Outing was held on May 15, 2019 at Ironwood Golf Course in Sussex. Another year is in the books and do we know how to pick Wednesdays in May! We were treated to a sunny Wednesday afternoon with temperatures in the low 70s for 92 golfers and many volunteers. Thanks goes out to Mike Lehman and his Ironwood staff for helping to make our event a great success. We shifted gears on him that morning and moved the pre and post event portion from the clubhouse to the Party barn. That shift went off without a hitch.

A special thanks to Sal Zizzo and Trysting Place Pub for his donation of lunch before the event as well as supplying food for after the event. Sal also surprised us with 2 boat rides during the auction that brought in another $600. Sal’s donation equals 1 ½ scholarships that we give out. If you see him, please thank him for this donation.
Many thanks to the golfers that came out and played and to those that donated items for our event. All your support helps make this an amazing event. Thanks also goes out to the volunteers that day: Marcia Hebbring, Dawn Mariscal, Steve Fleming, Joy Fricke, Kathy Matthiessen, Carol Schulteis, Kristy Gruenwald, and Jen Dederick. A thank’s also goes out to our club President Jeanine Dederick who made an appearance that morning to help welcome golfers. The outing could not go out without someone stocking the infamous Beverage cart that roams the course, and that thanks goes to Matt Hakes and VFI for stocking it with special surprises. Two more thank you’s go out to our photographers that surprised me that day and showed up without me asking – Don Gorzek and Jon Cline. We cannot wait to see those pictures. A huge thank you goes out to Jerry Mislang who helps me every year during the post event portion of the day as we give away the prizes and do the voice auction. He helps record all the bidder’s names and their amounts for me so we can keep the auction rolling along. My final thank you goes out to my wonderful committee that helps make this happen: Greg Mattson, Tom Ciskoski, Joy Fricke, Carol Schulteis, John Yusko, and Larry Barbera. Although I get to talk about the event before and after, it truly is a team effort to make this happen. Final profit amounts were not available at this time as we are still awaiting a few checks. Once received, I will get it to Jeanine to share in her weekly newsletter to the club.
The event winners were teams captained by Mike Yanke (-15), Terry Marcou (-11), and Tina Polk (-1). Mark your calendars for the third Wednesday in May of 2020 – our 30th annual event. Thanks again.
