I am so proud of my community. Last week I volunteered at the US Oil Open golf tournament. It’s the largest one day golf event in the country and this year, thanks to the generosity of 740 golfers along with 1200 area businesses, the event raised $2.2 million for basic needs. That’s $760,ooo more than last year! 100% of the funds will be distributed the Community Foundations in the Fox Valley, Green Bay and Oshkosh areas. There is no overhead thanks to the generosity of the Schmidt family and US Oil.
This event is a great example of people and organizations coming together to do the right thing just because it’s the right thing to do. We can make a difference!
