5th Annual American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter Door County Golf Classic Raises $21,000 to Support Local Services

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter held its 5th Annual Door County Golf Classic on Monday, August 31 at Horseshoe Bay Golf Club in Egg Harbor. We were much honored to have American Transmission Company (ATC) as the major sponsor of the event.

“American Transmission Co. is pleased and proud to support the American Red Cross,” said David D. Hovde, Senior Local Relations Representative. “ATC recognizes how important the work of the Red Cross is to people across the street and across the country. Because of the Red Cross, people in need are able to receive care, comfort and much-needed assistance in their time of need. We’re glad we can help to make that happen.”

Joining us this year were 29 teams.  The event featured 18 holes of golf and concluded with dinner, program and auction.

“I was very pleased to see Northeast Wisconsin step up and sponsor teams, our auction items, and participate during this current economical time,” said Eric Witczak, Senior Vice President, Retail Banking Manager, Nicolet Bank and Event Chair.  “I am really looking forward to next years outing with a goal of $30,000 in net income.”

Taking first placing for the lowest gross score was the team of Nicolet Title, including Rich Nelson, Tom Komp, Tim Nelson and Scott Lade. First place for the lowest net score was Door County Memorial with team members Bob Scieszinski, Dan Boes, Jerry Worrick and Jake Schulz.

The $21,000 raised from the Door County Golf Outing will go to support services in our eight counties including; families affected by disasters, provide rides for those 60 and over and those with disabilities get to medical, nutritional and employment needs, and continue to provide life-saving training classes for people in our community.
