United for kids: 180 golfers play in CHN Charity Golf Classic
Berlin’s Mascoutin Golf Club was home to 180 golfers united at the 11th annual Community Health Network (CHN) Charity Golf Classic on June 11th.
The event raised more than $24,000 for the CHN Foundation’s Lucille Schultz Caring For Kids fund, which assists area children and their families who are challenged with the financial pressures of dealing with a medical condition.
The Charity Golf Classic was again an 18-hole best ball scramble, encompassing three divisions and offering many chances at hole-in-one prizes and special flag events. 2004 Charity Golf Classic winners are as follows:
First Place: Dr. Dave Gruszka, Rusty Grimm, Aaron Grimm and Jason Boquist
Second Place: Dr. Anthony Racki, Anthony Racki, JR and Paul Seidenstricker
First Place: Marge Kumbier, Emmy Mayer, Barb Newhouse and Bev Sterk
First Place: Russ and Sue Kuehn and Mike and Stephanie Starshak
Following play, golfers retired to the club’s Fairway Restaurant, where they were served a family style chicken and beef tips dinner during the event’s program, emceed by Russ Kuehn of the Charity Golf Classic Executive Planning Committee.
After welcoming golfers and expressing his appreciation on behalf of the committee, Kuehn introduced Craig W.C. Schmidt, CHN President and CEO, who also thanked those in attendance, provided a brief history of the event, and introduced two special guests in the audience: Lt. Col. (Ret.) Herman Schultz of Green Lake and Troy Butt of Berlin.
A Caring For Kids fund recipient, Butt shared his personal experience in dealing with Hodgkin’s disease, and told golfers how much he appreciated the assistance he received from the CHN Foundation. When he was newly diagnosed with cancer, Butt was at risk for losing health insurance coverage when the Lucille Schultz Caring For Kids fund purchased him a laptop to remain enrolled in college and insured under his parents’ policy.
Lt. Col. (Ret.) Schultz has donated more than $125,000 to CHN in his late wife Lucille’s memory, after which CHN appropriately renamed its children’s health fund the “Lucille Schultz Caring For Kids Fund.” Schultz assisted Kuehn and Charity Golf Classic staff by drawing the names of the lucky winners of the event’s Grand Raffle. Prizes and winners included:
