Hole-in-One at the Sixth Annual Door-Kewaunee Golf Classic

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter held its 6th Annual Door-Kewaunee Golf Classic on Monday, August 30, 2010 for the first time at The Orchards at Egg Harbor. We were proud to have American Transmission Company join us for the second year as our major sponsor of the event.

The day got off to an exciting start with Pete Peterson of John Henry’s Restaurant (pictured right) getting a Hole-in-One on the 11th hole. “This is the first time I’ve witnessed a hole-in-one,” said Jack Flemal, Red Cross Volunteer at the hole on the green. “He (Peterson) didn’t know at first he got it in so he asked me if I saw his ball. I said –“Look in the hole!” All hole-in-one prizes were sponsored by Witt Ford. Peterson won a vacation package for 3days/2nights to the Peabody in Memphis, TN.

We also thank our other contributing sponsors including: Dinner Sponsor – Nicolet National Bank; Lunch Sponsor –Schreiber Foods; Cart Sponsor – Dominion Energy, Kewaunee

Joining us this year were 28 teams for the 18-hole scramble event. The day of golf concluded with dinner and awards.

Taking first place this year was Bridenhagen Tree & Landscape – Team captain, Ivan Bridenhagen. (pictured above)

“We are very grateful for our wonderful sponsors and participants for their generous support of this successful fundraising event,” said Steve Maricque, Lakeland Chapter Executive Director. “It’s with their help that we are able to provide needed services within our service area. Additional thanks go out to our many volunteers that helped represent the Red Cross during the event.”

The $27,000 raised from the Door-Kewaunee Golf Classic will go to support services for Door and Kewaunee County (two of the eight counties we serve) Those services include families affected by disasters, emergency communication to military families and their loved ones, rides for those 60 and over and those with disabilities get to medical, nutrition and employment needs (Door County), and continue to provide life-saving training classes for people in our community.
