2015 Gathering Golf Classic

As some of you may know, we sadly had to cancel the golf outing on Monday due to severe thunderstorms in the morning and the threat of same throughout the afternoon. It did clear up around 2pm, allowing those who came on out (we could not reach all golfers in time) to golf anyway. Each paid golfer will receive a raincheck allowing them to golf 18 holes with a cart on another weekday this golf season. Because the benefits (lunch, dinner and beverage tickets) will not be part of that raincheck, we will re-send charitable contribution letters to those who paid.

The Gathering staff is working on a backup plan for the Golf raffle, and we will alert golfers to the new plan as soon as we are able.

Thank you to everyone who supported the event! Stay tuned for more in-depth information on dollars raised, sponsorships and the raffle.

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.

2013 Gathering Golf Classic

The rain started drizzling down around 10:30 am, when the Gathering’s volunteers and staff members were arriving and preparing to set up for the Gathering’s 7th annual Golf Classic. Everyone was nervous to see the rain and wondered how the day would turn out. Miraculously, the rain stopped right as the event was beginning. It didn't pick back up until guests and volunteers were pulling out of the parking lot. It was a perfect window of sunshine and breeze for a fun, enjoyable afternoon of golf!

The 2013 Gathering Golf Classic was held on Monday, June 24, at Evergreen Golf Course in Elkhorn. This year’s event raised $14,245 to feed Milwaukee’s hungry and homeless. Over 80 golfers competed for two hole in one prizes—a Land Rover courtesy of Fields Auto Waukesha and a two night, three day golf vacation courtesy of Evergreen Golf. Some came close, but no hole-in-one winners this year. Many also participated in our exciting raffle.

We were fortunate enough to have many generous sponsors and donors who made this event possible. Special Thanks to our Gold Sponsors ($2500):

Twin Disc has grown up in Racine to become a world-class manufacturer of power transmission equipment. Our products manage and control horsepower all over the world—in all field equipment, airport crash trucks, military vehicles, fishing boats, work boats and pleasure crafts. Twin Disc is proud to be part of a corporate citizenry that has left its mark on the world. It is a tribute to this community and those who live and work here. WE PUT HORSEPOWER TO WORK!

Wishes The Gathering continued success in its ministry of feeding Milwaukee’s hungry and homeless. Zacher Truck Services—929 W Waterford avenue, Milwaukee, WI (414) 482-4010

And last but not least, thanks to our hole-in-one sponsor:

The event ran smoothly on a beautiful course thanks, in part, to Evergreen Golf Club—excellent hosts as usual. Finally, big thanks to Shane Morrison and Jim Leurquin—the Gathering Board co-chairs of this year’s event. Their behind-the-scenes hard work made it all possible.  Now that The Gathering staff is back in the office on a rainy day, we will undoubtedly find ourselves reminiscing through pictures of golf carts and sun, until next year!

Thanks again to all.
