The PGA Championship at Whistling Straits on August 13 had strong competition in the fifth annual UW-Green Bay Retiree Association Benefit Golf Outing. Several geese and turkeys lined the course at Shorewood to watch the action as nearly 40 golfers and guests – including alumni, current employees, and friends of the University – joined UW-Green Bay retirees for the purpose of raising scholarship dollars. Amid the camaraderie and fun, nearly $1,000 was raised for the UW-Green Bay Retiree Association endowed scholarship, which currently supports one student per year at the $750 level. By adding to the fund, the Retiree Association hopes to be able to help more students and at a greater level each year.
The Retiree Association would like to thank the donors to the golf outing who, through their contributions, helped the Association with its goal for this event: Northwest Mutual, The Phoenix Bookstore, Pump Room, Shorewood Golf Course, UW-Green Bay Alumni Association, UW-Green Bay Athletics, Wells Fargo Advisors and The Woods Golf Course.
