Some Heroes Wear Plaid and Carry Clubs

By Becky Bergin, Director of Special Events 

On Monday, May 19th, twenty-six teams (OUR HEROES) came out to golf the beautiful fairways at Oneida Golf and Country Club for the 26th Annual Heroes Golf Tournament.

Thank you to the Green Bay Fire Department for giving of your time.

The event featured 18 holes of golf with a four-person scramble format. Golfers began the tournament at the sound of a fire truck siren from Green Bay Fire Department.

There was never a dull moment on the course that day. Throughout game-play, Red Cross volunteers and signs communicated safety tips to players and information about the programs and services provided by the American Red Cross. Participants were also challenged at various holes to see who could sink the longest putt or hit the longest drive. Golfers were even given the opportunity to win a brand new Cadillac CTS sponsored by Bergstrom Cadillac of Green Bay if they made a 150 yard hole-in-one. Unfortunately, no one walked away with the keys, but the vision of Cadillacs still dance in their heads.

An exciting “betting hole” was also featured on the course. Los Banditos, Titletown Brewing Co. and 1951 West generously donated gift certificates that the players could double the value of if they landed their ball on the green. A booze basket raffle and bucket raffle were also highlighted on the course.

Schreiber Foods sponsored a cook-out style lunch with brats and hamburgers and M3 Insurance sponsored the golf carts for the day.

Raindrops began to fall as the teams finished their last hole, but that didn’t dampen their spirits.

Inside the clubhouse, they feasted on a gourmet dinner prepared by the country club and raised a record amount of dollars bidding on one-of-a-kind live auction packages from Big Tomatoes, Triple J Wing and Clay, The Green Bay Packers, Robinson Metal and Chef Bob Bouthilet of new Home Chef.

All told, our golfing heroes raised $42,000 for the American Red Cross Northeast Wisconsin Chapter.

All proceeds from the Heroes Golf Tournament support the programs and services provided by the American Red Cross Northeast Wisconsin Chapter serving a 20-county area in Northeast Wisconsin and the Michigan-Wisconsin Border communities. Those services include assistance to local families impacted by fire and other disasters, assistance to military personnel and families, health and safety education and blood collection. This event also supports a transportation program in Green Bay, administered by the Red Cross, to seniors and individuals with disabilities.
