The Wisconsin FFA Foundation is once again hosting three summer golf outings around the state in July. All three events are open to the public and benefit the Foundation’s annual fund, a cornerstone of financial support for Wisconsin FFA and agricultural education in the state. Together these golf outings are the Wisconsin FFA Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser, raising $40,000 in 2017.
The outings are an 18-hole, best-ball scramble format for teams of four golfers. Dates are as follows:
- Monday, July 16: Northwest Outing in Eau Claire at the Wild Ridge Golf Course
- Tuesday, July 17: Northeast Outing in De Pere at Mid Vallee Golf Course
- Monday, July 23: Southern Outing in Middleton at Pleasant View Golf Course
The final golfer registration deadline is June 24. Registration is $85 per person ($340 per foursome) for each outing, which includes 18 holes of golf, cart rental, continental breakfast and a buffet luncheon hosted by a local celebrity guest.
To register, call (608) 831-5058 x1, or visit www.wisconsinffafoundation.org/events. The luncheon program is available for non-golfers at $15 per ticket. Donations for live and silent auctions, as well as outing sponsorships are always welcome. The 2018 brochure and explanation of sponsorship opportunities also can be found online.
“We’re looking forward to joining sponsors and other FFA advocates at our golf outings this summer,” says John Hromyak, executive director of the Wisconsin FFA Foundation. “Last year, the events brought over 250 golfers, volunteers and supporters together on behalf of agriculture education, and we’re hopeful for another strong turnout this year. It’s yet another display of the generosity and commitment our benefactors have to Wisconsin FFA, which we are very grateful for!”
