2016 Buddy Bench Golf Outing Raises $86,600!
The 2nd Annual Buddy Bench Golf Outing was once again a HUGE success raising over $86,000! Over 200 people attended the event which included a golf tournament, several on-course fundraising events, dinner, live and silent auction. Special guest, Former Green Bay Packer Bill Schroeder, attended once again as he proudly supports the anti-bullying program. Bill was able to raise additional money for the program by "selling" his drive, signing autographs and heading the live auction. Live auction items included an authentic autographed JJ Watt UW-Badgers helmet, chartered boat cruise, and a Caddyshack poster donated and signed my Bill Murray himself! Over a dozen Buddy Benches have been implemented into Wisconsin schools this past year and have several slated to be donated this year including Wheatland Center School, Tibbets Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary, Greenland Elementary, Reek Elementary, St. Mary's Grade School, several schools within the Racine Unified School District, and many more! We would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of our sponsors, auction item donors, golfers, board members, and volunteers who helped make this year's event as successful as it was. We cannot thank everyone enough for their generosity and support. We TRULY appreciate it!
