2014 Gathering Golf Classic Recap

We raised $20,138.73! Our most successful Golf Classic to date!

At 1:30 on the dot, the sun came out from behind the rain clouds and shined down on the 75 golfers as they headed to their assigned tees. The Gathering’s 8th annual Golf Classic was held at Elkhorn’s Evergreen Golf Course on Monday, June 23. Over the years this special event has generated $112,787 for the Gathering’s work. The dollars raised this year were the most ever, thanks to the generosity of our major sponsors. Dollars were also raised from registration fees, wine ring toss, and a raffle offering everything from a Kindle Fire to a Brewers’ Tailgate. Sponsors and raffle donors are listed on the next page.

After the event, Cathy Stagmer, Manager-Global Community Relations for Joy Global (a Gold Sponsor since 2008) stated, I’m glad the event was the success you hoped it would be. Our golfers had a great time. One of the members of our foursome was new to the company and new to the Gathering. He was very impressed with you as an organization and passionate about the work you do to serve our community. We look forward to joining you on the greens again next year!”

Holz Chevrolet supplied the car for our hole-in-one, but, alas it was not won. Other winners included Cameron Brady – longest drive; John Gardipee – longest putt; Dan Kiernan – closest to the pin; Muldoon (Tom)/Wiesneth/Rogaczewski/Rogaczewski foursome - highest score (last place); Morrison/Brady/Wickett/Sievert foursome - lowest score (1st place). Thanks to The Gathering’s Board of Directors who drive this event and to Gathering staff for their support work. Mark your calendars for next year – Monday, June 22! We would love to have you join us.
