Charity golf outing earmarks $24,000 for Camp Lloyd

On Aug. 16, the third annual “Telawhopper Classic” Charity Golf Outing in Memory of Charlie Johnson took place with a full day of golfing at the Woods Golf Club of Green Bay. Johnson was a well-liked employee of nearly 15 years with Imperial Supplies who, sadly, died in 2013 at the age of 44 after a battle with cancer. The annual outing represents the inspiration of Imperial colleagues who wanted to honor Johnson by helping others. With the support of corporate sponsors including The Grainger Foundation, Imperial Supplies and Associated Bank — along with the participation of many community donors and golfers — a whopping $24,000 was raised from this year’s event. The campus connection? The beneficiary of this year’s Classic is Camp Lloyd at UW-Green Bay. “We were proud to have Charlie’s son as a camper for the past two summers,” says Prof. Illene Cupit of Human Development, the camp’s founder and director. “With only $1,000 more we can reach our target for endowing the camp, and ensure that Camp Lloyd will be serving grieving children in our community for many years to come. Truly this is university-community connections at is best.”
