An early morning rain transitioned into sunny skies just in time for the shotgun start to the 35th annual UW-Green Bay Scholarship Golf Outing, Friday, June 12. One of the Alumni Association’s longest-standing events, the outing set a new record for dollars raised with more than $15,000 generated for student scholarships through fees, sponsorships, raffles and auctions.
The net winner of the outing was a UWGB faculty team of John Katers, John Luczaj, Patrick Forsythe and Chris Houghton. Gross winners were Andrew Branam, Greg Metzler, Seth Kabat and Heather Ryczek.

In case you were wondering, the 35th annual Alumni Association Scholarship Golf Outing set for this Friday (June 12) is a go, rain or shine. If it’s too wet for golf and stays that way, Royal Scot will issue rain checks for the 18 holes but the Association will carry on with lunch, the bucket raffle, silent auction, 50/50 raffle and the assorted, related activities raising money for scholarships.
The UW-Green Bay Alumni Association’s 35th annual Scholarship Golf Outing raised $15,000 and this year’s goal is higher for the event Friday, June 12, at Royal Scot Golf Course. Singles and foursomes welcome. Learn more.
A record number of golfers (an event-maximum 144) raised a record number of dollars (15,000) during the June 13 Alumni Scholarship Golf Outing. UW-Green Bay’s Vets 4 Vets Club also raised more than $1,000 for veterans scholarships, our friends in Advancement tell us — and everyone had a blast hitting the links. Bellin Health and Heartland Business Systems/Microsoft were the event’s major sponsors. Scholarship dollars were raised through auction and raffle items and sponsorship and participant fees. “Our sponsors, Alumni Board and committee members did a fantastic job,” said Alumni Director Kari Moody. “It was a beautiful day and a spirited event.” Need proof?
